We’re working on issue 39 already, a special edition for your eyes! More news soon!
We are pleased to be able to announce the brand new issue of Lights Go Out. Issue 38 is now fully finished and is on its way to the printers.
Featuring interviews with Warm Needles, Unwritten Law, Fucko, The Griswalds, CXA and 16 Guns. Also the usual that you’d expect from us, columns, music reviews, gig review & zine reviews. We’ve also got a feature on the rules of shotgun (as this came up during a recent journey with Second In Line). The front cover artwork is by the incredibly talented Ty Bennett (who we also chat to in the zine!). 36 pages, really pleased with this new issue, can’t wait for you all to check it out.
Pre-order will be up very soon, so do keep your eyes out!
We have already started on issue 39, which will be another of our “special editions” so apologies if you don’t enjoy those, but it does help to keep things interesting for us. Issue 40, will be a normal issue (probably!).
And it’s announcement time again… the final band we’re chatting with in the next issue of Lights Go Out will be the incredible Warm Needles.
Warm Needles are one of my favourite bands I’ve been introduced to over the last 12 months or so. Hailing from Long Island, NY they play an amazing blend of gruff pop punk rock. “Inconsolable” is an incredible album and I really do recommend people check it out. I am so pleased to be able to have had a catch up with the band and get them into the pages of Lights Go Out.

Time for another announcement on the ever closer 38th issue of Lights Go Out Zine. We are pleased to announce that the new issue will feature and interview with the amazing Fucko!
Boston’s Fucko recently release their debut album “Dealing With The Weird”, a mix of alternative indie and grunge (fans of The Breeders would be wise to check them out!). We absolutely loved it at Lights Go Out HQ and knew we wanted to feature them in our pages. We were able to have a chat with Sarah Desmarais about Fucko. You’ll be able to read all about it in the next issue.
We’re in the process of allocating advert space currently, so if you’d like to secure some print space, do please drop us a line and we’ll get it sorted, thanks.
Yep, it’s time for yet another announcement on what you can expect to see in the next issue of Lights Go Out. It gives us great pleasure to announce we’ll be featuring Unwritten Law!!!
Formed in San Diego in the early ’90s Unwritten Law has undeniably paved the way for rock/alternative musicians around the world with staple multi-platinum releases like Elva. The band have just released their eighth studio album, Acoustic. Currently on tour with Fenix TX, we caught up with frontman Scott Russo…
You’ll be able to read all about it in the issue 38 – coming in April!
We are working very hard to hit all the deadlines for the next issue and we’ll be announcing another interview soon, stay tuned for more updates!
