We are pleased to announce that Issue 39 of Lights Go Out is coming very soon! We have finished 37 of the 40 pages, so we’re very close to getting it all completed and sent off to the printers!
It’s going to be a special edition this time out (to keep things mixed up) and we’ll be announcing all the cool articles very soon too!
The front cover artwork comes from the amazing Maggie Lynn Negrete, and we can’t wait for you all to see the cover, but we’re going to have to! Here’s a small preview of what’s coming though. Huge thanks to Maggie for contributing.
Issue 40 is already well underway, we’ve already completed a couple of interviews, more in the works and of course we’ll post more news on this soon as well. Planned release date for Issue 40 will be Aug 2nd, so if you’d like to contribute, the closing date for this will be July 5th, thanks.
This Saturday we’ll be venturing to Southampton for DIY SOUTHAMPTON 3! We’ll have a stall there selling zines – not just Lights Go Out and other cool items too, not 100% sure yet, but probably music and also handmade items too.
The event looks like it’ll be great with stalls, food, workshops, music and more!
The Facebook event page is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/441639989373260/– you should definitely come and check it out and say hi!
We are really pleased to let you all know that issue 38 of the ramshackle DIY punk rock zine that we call Lights Go Out is officially back from the printers and therefore released today!
All orders will be stuffed into envelopes and post out ASAP! Please do pick a copy (or ten) up here from us and support the zine, it’s much appreciated!

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.
