It’s time for Maximum Rocknroll #407, the April 2017 issue — can you handle it? We talk to Brazil’s FUTURO, who are about to set out on a full US tour; L.A.’s GENERACION SUICIDA give us the report from their UK/Ireland jaunt, OHYDA talk bringing delay-drenched hardcore to Poland, and ULTRA clue us into punk life in Barcelona in advance of their first US tour.

All this plus the best film, record, book, demo, and zine review sections going. Order today!

Dublin post-punkers the BLOW INS talk about carving out space for Polish punks in a new country, Baltimore’s QUITTER share the trials and tribulations of gas station food and sweaty jumpsuits, and Oakland’s HARD LEFT can’t decide if they are hard mod or utopian Oi! (maybe Turbo can help?). It all wraps up with Canadian raw punk band PARASYTES, a joint interview with LAKES and TOL (two Australian bands that share members), and Scottish vegan straightedge riot grrrls BRATAKUS. Get it today!
