Great news! Issue 45 of Lights Go Out has been completed and is ready for release in April! It’s another cracking issue we reckon and features Kevin Seconds (Aim Higher / 7Seconds), 2 Sick Monkeys, Columns, Reviews, Band Profiles (Empty Cages, RVRMN and Secrets Of Mariana) and cover artist Mitch Smith. We also have a great feature on “The Wit Of Cheggers“. Gadgie @ The Flicks looks at “Bound” as well.
You can order the issue from us now and it’s available from us here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?product=lights-go-out-issue-45
Huge thanks to Mitch for the amazing artwork on the front cover as well!
And we start working on May’s issue right away. I’m already pleased to announce it’ll feature an interview with the rather wonderful punk rock two piece known as Hacksaw! But, we’re always looking for people who’d love to get involved with the zine, so please do drop us a line.
And thanks again to those who do pick a copy up the zine, your support is very much appreciated.
We are really pleased to announce that we are now stocking releases by UK DIY Punk Rock label, Back From The Dead Records.
They’re only three releases in (all CD) but we’re really pleased to be involved. Releases from Second In Line and Chester so far, but we’ve heard they have some really interesting stuff in the pipeline. All releases are £4.50 posted in the UK – but if you order more than 1 or zines, you should be able to save on shipping from us too!
You can grab them from us here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?post_type=product
Please do support DIY labels, bands of course zines!
Yes indeed, issue 44 of Lights Go Out is out NOW!

And we start work on issue 45 right away, this zine a month challenge is pretty tough, but we’re 1/4 of the way through now. Issue 45 will however feature the Aim Higher interview and also an interview with those punk rock heroes that we all know and love, 2 Sick Monkeys! And of course more that we’re working on…
Please do support what we’re doing, it is much appreciated! Cheers.
Aim Higher is a new solo project from punk rock legend Kevin Seconds. Kevin is well known for his work with 7Seconds and also from a few other side projects. Aim Higher sees him recording everything himself and has just been released on 7” via Rise Records.
We checked the record out and it’s insane, it’s beyond good. So when the chance came to throw a few questions Kevin’s way, we jumped at the chance. You can read the interview online now…

We’ll also be printing this in the hard copy of the zine (Issue 46).
Issue 44 of Lights Go Out will be released later this week. The 3rd of our 2017 monthly zine challenge and this new issues is bloody great if we do say so ourselves!
Featuring: Darko, Weekend Recovery, Wolfe Sunday, T & The Mugs, Telefunken and Tears Of Christ all chatting with us. There’s the usual columns and music reviews as well. This issue’s “Gadgie At The Flicks” tackles “Three O’clock High”. There’s also a bunch of band profiles from the likes of: Ben Miles / We’ll Take Manhattan / Gutterflower / Dead Natives / Tony Goff & The Broken Colours / Bullets & Bourbon / Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
So as you can see it’s another rammed issue for you! The front cover was designed by Janne of Svensk Apache – massive thanks to Janne for allowing us to feature his work once again. What can I say? We’re huge fans! Thanks so much!
