Winnipeg hardcore trio and Juno Award-toters KEN Mode grace the cover of this month's issue of Exclaim! Though performing and recording is nothing new to the 13-year-old band, the guys talk about the band lineup changes and democratic writing process that led to their latest album, Entrench.
Our Timeline feature traces the history of the multiple award winning "Prince of Pain," Trent Reznor, from his early start as a college dropout testing out computer systems to eight successful albums as Nine Inch Nails and various other projects, including his latest, How To Destroy Angels. UK dance progenitor Jamie Lidell lets us in on his inner diva in this months Questionnaire, in which he also expresses his love for Canada, and maps out the way to his heart (hint: good coffee, and lots of Breaking Bad episodes).
We talk to the guys behind the Toronto recording studio the Dream House, where Crystal Castles, the Weeknd and Thomas D'Arcy have all recorded. They discuss the major renovations that went into what was originally supposed to be a shared living space, as well as the number of "people who have come in here nameless and left with a name."
Ryan Hemsworth discusses what it was like to juggle school and music, and how now that he has graduated from university, he has a "real job": working on his debut full-length. We also published interviews with Hollerado, who have been making waves with high-concept tours and their most recent release White Paint, and Phosphorescent, who is aiming to do their North American tour "smart" this time around.
As always, we have a ton of exclusive interviews with this month including interviews with Youth Lagoon, Rachel Zeffira, Pristina, Josh Ritter, Shai Hulud, Billy Bragg and more.
