We need to talk about albums.
The next few months are about to get busy as a whole bunch of acts - both big and small - release new full-lengths. There are so many, we’re struggling to keep our schedules up to date ourselves, and it’s sort of our job.
We know what you’re like, though, Dear Reader. You don’t want to miss out on anything. That’s why we’ve decided to do our very best to make sure you don’t have to, putting together our very first Dork’s Big Album Guide.
Covering the ‘Q3’ and ‘Q4’ reporting periods, it’s your pocket guide to a whole load of new records set for release between now and the end of the year. We’ve also given you a refresher on the best of 2018 so far, too, just to make sure you’re fully up to date.
Inside, you’ll find two issues in one flipped magazine, featuring new interviews with our two cover stars. There’s Deaf Havana - who drop their latest full-length ‘Rituals’ today - and Bad Sounds, prepping their debut album for later this month. There’s also Spring King, Idles, Pale Waves and a whole bunch of exiting first steps for our favourite new bands. There's everything we know about the next steps for The 1975 and Bastille, we work out if we’re likely to have any unexpected arrivals, and make sure you’re fully brief on what’s definitely on the slate.
Dork’s Big Album Guide is out now, available from independent record stores, venues and ‘more’ around the UK, or to order direct from readdork.com above. We’ll also be sending it out free to subscribers with the next run of the main magazine later this month, so you’ve no need to worry about missing out.
