Holy moly, it’s another spectacular issue of Maximum Rocknroll already! MRR #428, the January 2019 issue, is jam packed with interviews and features to thrill you. We dive deep into the fascinating history of the amazing, steam-powered Cascade Record Pressing, get an overview of what’s what in a Belgium scene report, and learn about two rad fests in Texas: the recent Black and Brown Punk Fest TX in San Antonio and the upcoming return of This Is Austin, Not That Great in, uh, Austin. What’s that? You’re here for the bands? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered! Singapore’s SIAL dish on their local scene, Florida’s BITE MARKS let their personalities come out full force, and we get a rundown of CHIMERA, one of Russia’s greatest bands of the ’90s. Plus we’ve got Atlanta’s Scavenger of Death on the history of their all-hits label, and cartoonist Liz Suburbia on her new Cyanide Milkshake book! If that’s not enough for you, we’ve got all your favorite columns and reviews, a hearty letters section, and, as a bonus, a reprint of some material from issue #427. What are you waiting for?

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.
