FALL FORWARD! AP’S FALL PREVIEW EXTRAVAGANZA FEATURING GYM CLASS HEROES AND UNDEROATH
Meetings were held. Emotions ran high. Voices were raised. Sleep was lost, and hunger pangs were birthed. And we still couldn’t make a clear-cut decision as to who was going to be on the damn cover this month. Should it be Underoath (p. 138), whose brand new disc is the closest you can come to being in the middle of a forest fire without dying? Or should we give it up to Gym Class Heroes (p. 128), who spent their summer showing Warped Tour crowds there are only two types of music (good and bad)? Our impasse resulted in a pretty hefty fall preview special that you’ll want to return to with frequency. Turn the page, already!
THE ACADEMY IS...
There are at least two AP editors who would prefer to keep their high school memories submerged in a hermetically sealed locker at the bottom of an ocean. The Academy Is..., however, decided to base their new album around theirs. Go figure.
WHOSE FUTURE IS IT, ANYWAY? AP’S ELECTION SPECIAL
P. Diddy made waves with his 2004 “Vote Or Die” presidential election ads. While we appreciate his intent, we’re more concerned about why you should vote (or die). So we checked-in with members of Rage Against The Machine, OK Go, MxPx and more to find out what issues mean the most to them. Plus, we had you tell us what’s important in a new prez in our first-ever online election poll. We broke down the results so you can see how your opinions stack up with other readers’.
FACING NORTH: AP’S CANADIAN MUSIC SPECIAL
You won’t get any Ministry Of Tourism-style babble from us, but there are some great sounds coming from way up north. So we mobilized our Canadian tastemaker assault team to get you the lowdown on ATTACK IN BLACK, DOG DAY, FAKE SHARK-REAL ZOMBIE!, STATUES and a few more bands to expand your playlist.
