Pale Waves are one of five cover acts for the September 2022 issue of Dork.

Returning to the cover of Dork for a record fourth time (well done, guys), the band are about to drop their new album ‘Unwanted’ imminently, an in-your-face, pop punk odyssey that sees them returning to heavier roots.

“I think the moment where ‘Unwanted’ started was the pandemic,” admits Heather Baron-Gracie. “We were sitting at home and just knew we wanted to make an album. We didn’t want to wait like we had before. It was all about utilising this time and getting into a studio while still trying to figure out everything going on to start writing and recording. I knew once things began to get back to normality, we would be right back on the road again. This was our opportunity.”

As well as all five cover features in each edition – 5 Seconds of Summer, YUNGBLUD, Pale Waves, Lava La Rue and Sports Team – you’ll also find chats with Phoebe Green, Ezra Furman, Lauran Hibberd, Stella Donnelly, The Big Moon, Crawlers, Beach Bunny, LIFE, Bayli and loads more.

We’re down the front with Olivia Rodrigo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sam Fender, George Ezra and all the biggest and best festivals, asking daft questions to The Amazons, and drilling deep into Dylan Fraser‘s new EP. Add to that all the usual stuff and nonsense, and we’re pretty damn confident you’ll want for nothing.
