Dork’s first issue of 2022 is out now, featuring cover stars Bastille.

Dan Smith and co front up our February 2022 edition, as they prepare for the release of their new full-length ‘Give Me The Future’. A sort of near-future science fiction pop jukebox, in Dan’s own words: “I would be lying if I said we set out to make this album.”

Elsewhere this month, we catch up with one of the UK’s most exciting bands Yard Act to celebrate the release of their debut album. For some reason, we play mini-golf with The Wombats, because it seemed like a good idea at the time, and Black Country New Road might like a bit of a toot now and again, but as they release a second album that beats their critically and commercially lauded debut, it’s all in the name of good fun.

In this month’s mag you’ll also find the likes of Alice Glass, Spector, Glass Animals, Sports Team, MICHELLE, Ashnikko, Cavetown and L Devine. CMAT gives us some karaoke tips, Willow Kayne talks us through her debut EP, and in Hype we introduce you to VLURE, Alix Page, Horsegirl and more. Loads of stuff.

You can order the new issue of Dork right now here, or subscribe and get the print edition sent directly to your door every month here. However, if you want even more from us, right now, you can join up to the Dork Supporters scheme.

If you like what we do, we’re making available a section of the site for those who wish to support us by signing up to a new monthly or annual subscription package. Different from our previous print-only subscriptions, the Dork Supporters scheme allows you to get early access to all our print content in digital form as soon as the issue launches, read digital versions of every single edition of Dork right back to issue 1, and get occasional exclusive extras too. You can sign up for digital-only or digital + print packages, which will give you immediate access. You can find more information here.

And don’t worry if you’re not signing up. You’ll still get everything you did before, as digital versions of our print content unlock to be read free of charge throughout the month. Enjoy!
