“Hello and welcome to issue 43 of Stencil Mag!
IT’S HERE! FESTIVAL SEASON! Slam Dunk started it off recently with bands like Enter Shikari, Don Broco, Bowling For Soup, Goldfinger and many, MANY more pushing what we can expect from the UK festival scene in a glorious way. In this issue we get you excited for the mighty Download Festival! By featuring Coheed & Cambria, Pierce The Veil, Crown The Empire, Steel Panther, Alestorm, Wednesday 13 and MORE who all tell us what you can expect from their upcoming performances at the event!
Our main feature comes from Incubus. We discuss their origin, as well as everything you need to know about their incredible new album ‘8’! They are no strangers to the alternative rock world, and by selling over 23 million albums they are simply one of the most influential bands in the world. With every release they have redefined what we have come to expect from them in an exciting way, and after their longest gap between records ever, they’ve come back with one of their best albums yet! So get involved, as we talk to Brandon himself!
We are no strangers to having voice actors appear in the magazine over the years. Troy Baker (Bioshock/The Last of Us) being a prime example of that. So fans of this type of talent are in for a treat with this issue as we catch up with Phil Lamarr (Futurama/Samurai Jack), Laura Bailey (Uncharted 4/Gears of War 4/Halo 5), Katie O’ Hagan (Resident Evil 7), Shawn Baichoo (Watchdogs/Outlast) to discuss their work on some of the coolest video games/TV shows of the last decade! As well as this, we are joined by author M.R. Carey who discusses his refreshing take on the zombie genre under the title of The Girl With All The Gifts, whilst telling us about his latest output The Boy On The Bridge!
As usual, my editors note doesn’t cover everything in the issue, as that’s just not possible. So please, dig in and discover something new today!
This issue is dedicated to those who tragically lost their lives in Manchester, Chris Cornell & Roger Moore.
Please never stay inside out of fear, and keep supporting live music like you always have done. It’s very, VERY important to creativity all across the world!”
