“THANKS ROCK SOUND MCR SALUTES YOU.” Gerard Way
EDIT Wow! We’ve reached a milestone in Rock Sound’s history – our 150th issue. Over the past 12 years we’ve covered so many amazing bands (and the odd duffer). We’ve launched the careers of many acts, given a huge helping hand to others, brought you some amazing touring action, featured over 2,000 tracks on our free CDs and hopefully helped you grow your music collection. This will be my last issue at the helm of good ship RS. It’s been one hell of a ride and I’m extremely proud of all that myself and the dedicated team have achieved over the first 150 issues. I’m heading Stateside, but remember every end is a new beginning and Rock Sound is in good hands. Here’s to another 150! Darren Taylor, Editor
8-31 THE NOISE This month Kids In Glass Houses introduce their bold, brave new album, we go into the studio with Brian ‘Gaslight’ Fallon’s new side-project Horrible Crowes, the mighty Deaf Havana and Holy State, take a trip into the past with Blink-182, look forward to Sonisphere kicking some serious ass and catch up with Polar Bear Club as they ready their new album. Phew. Oh, and if you fancy some free stuff we’ve got Hevy tickets, Macbeth clobber and Marshall headphones to give away.
32-42 EXPOSURE Want new bands to brighten up your life? We’ve got a shed-load for you right here, featuring Heights, Living With Lions, Save Your Breath, Evaline, Wolves Likes Us, Goodtime Boys and many more.

throwing down some pit moves with August Burns Red and Of Mice & Men, peering into the warped world of Japanese Voyeurs, grabbing a glimpse of life on the road with The Blackout and letting the wonderful Dananananaykroyd be as noisy as they like.
