Hot off the press, it’s the latest Maximum Rocknroll! Our June issue, MRR #421, brings you the hot gossip on all your favorite bands. Vancouver’s FASHIONISM has a nun fetish, for example, while Berlin’s CUNTROACHES shit themselves onstage, and New York’s MORAL PANIC may have pissed the couch. Too scandalous for you? Read APPRAISE‘s opinions on the Spanish sXe scene and Catalan independence, Portland’s MR. WRONG on their social responsibilities as a band, Mexico’s CRUZ DE NAVAJAS discussing the femicides in their country, or Australia’s EXEK contemplating tomorrow’s lunch.
Plus we’ve got DURS COEURS on the Ottawa scene, North Carolina’s NO LOVE admitting their most embarrassing shows, and, oh yeah, Japanese legends FIRESTARTER preparing for their only US show! If that’s not enough for you, check out some sick photos from DC’s Damaged City festival, our new DIY recording tips section, and all the columns and reviews that you love to get mad about every month. It’s right here in the newest issue of Maximum Rocknroll!
MRR is contributor-driven, which means that we rely on punks like you for content. You don’t need an invitation to be a part of what we do.
For review and radio play consideration, send two copies of vinyl or one copy of CD-only or cassette-only releases to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. Send us the final version of your record—we do not review digital releases, test presses, or promo CDs.
We will review everything that falls within our areas of coverage: independent punk, garage, and hardcore. This means no major labels or labels that are exclusively distributed by major-owned distributors. We reserve the right to reject releases on the basis of content. Music without vocals or drums will not be considered.
Every record that is reviewed is added to our archive, the largest collection of punk records in the world. Please allow two months from your mailing date before following up to ask if we’ve received your submission.
We are always looking for interview, scene report, guest column, and photo submissions. Submission does not guarantee publication. In order to improve the chances of your submission being printed, please read our FAQ.
In addition to records, we also review independently published and produced zines, books, and movies. Please send physical copies to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. If you have a streaming link to your film, or if it is playing in the San Francisco Bay Area, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
