EDIT Welcome to the new issue of Rock Sound. You may notice a few changes this month as we’ve been busy tweaking a lot of the magazine to make sure we bring you the best possible read – we’ve got a new logo, new features and a whole lot more to boot. The only thing that’s not changing is our mission to bring you the best new music – on that front we will never waiver. And what a way to kick off the new issue with no other than one of the biggest bands in the world – the Foo Fighters. Sixteen years on, they’re about to unleash album number seven and there’s simply no stopping Grohl and co, as we find out from the man himself. Check back next month for even more cool stuff.
