Check Out Cancer Bats, Joel Plaskett, Cannibal Corpse, Great Lake Swimmers and More in Our April Issue
First off, we check in with Toronto hardcore faves -- and April cover stars -- Cancer Bats to talk post-Bears soul-searching, fucking shit up in Red Deer and their heaviest outing to date, D.S.O.L., while Joel Plaskett reveals his career highs and lows, plus the tan-heavy show he wishes everyone would shut up about, with our Exclaim! Questionnaire.
Next, we dedicate this month's Timeline to gory death metal granddaddies Cannibal Corpse in an online exclusive. No strangers to controversy, we trace the band's many internal shake-ups, the graphic content that saw them banned throughout the world (and even facing jail time in Germany), and their surprising late-career resurgence, leading up to new release Torture.
In other interviews, "radio rock" revivers Zeus discuss their sophomore album Busting Visions, while Yukon Blonde let loose on their latest album Tiger Talk. Plus, five years after the release of Wincing the night Away, we sit down with the Shins to hear about the album that almost never was, Port of Morrow, and Great Lake Swimmers talk American Idol, the 2010 BP oil spill and recording their fifth long-player, New Wild Everywhere.
Finally, check out online exclusive interviews with Odd Future, Lee Ranaldo and Meshuggah, as well as explore the evolution of one of the most important funding organizations in Canada's music industry, FACTOR (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings), with our monthly trip to Music School.
Of course, there's a lot more up for grabs, so dig in and explore.
