Soundsphere Magazine - Issue 2
"So, we enjoyed great success with issue one and had some fantastic feedback from working inside of that alternative and gothic music niche (the magazine featured Placebo and Paradise Lost, for example). Despite that, and because of it, we've moved our concept forward significantly with the new issue (due out mid-July, 2011) and have gone in a much wider direction after having the opportunity to interview some amazing bands and artists from across the great genre spectrum (thanks to all of the people who've helped us, of course - you know who you are). So, we are now covering indie, rock, metal, electronic music AND some cultural stuff too.
The bands we are dealing with in issue two include: Pendulum, Enter Shikari, Killing Joke, The Pigeon Detectives, Frank Turner, Hyro Da Hero, My Passion, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Japanese Voyeurs, Patrick Wolf, Patrick Stump (of Fall Out Boy) and Skindred. We chat to each of these world-beating acts and get the lowdown on their latest albums and up-to-date plans.
We're also promoting a lot more great local talent from in and around Yorkshire including interviews with up-and-coming Leeds electronic rockers Officers and alt-indie band Hungry Ghostsalongside informative features on York-based cultural hotspot Bang Hair Studios, audio-only iPhone app pioneers Punk Pie, Derby's rockabilly-styled fashion outlet Miss Fortune, Sheffield's Corporation and Hull's premier tattoo artist Mat Lapping (of Creative Vandals). There's also a cool competition to win some clothes from our awesome friends at US alt-electronic label FiXT Music and a label spotlight on independent industrial label Armalyte Industries alongside the usual CD reviews and listings. Phew!" - Dom Smith (editor)
