Sundara Karma are on the cover of the new issue of Dork – pre-order now!

Reading's finest are leading a charge on 2017 in our latest print issue.
There’s nothing more exciting than a new band leading a charge. Sundara Karma‘s mighty steed sits at the head of a vibrant and rabid troupe of peers and fans, set to smash through the gathered ranks of 2017. With their album ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’ due to land this Friday (6th January), they’re making sure we start the year in style, punching through a hole that so many others will follow in the next twelve months.

That’s why they’re on the cover of the new issue of Dork, set to arrive later this month but available to pre-order now. Ordering direct from us is the only guaranteed way to make sure you get your hands on a copy – they fly off shelves fast – and if you’re a fan of the band you’re going to want this. Packed with stunning photos, it’s an epic extravaganza with one of the year’s most likely to go big.

That’s not all we’re bringing you, though. Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes are starting the year off with a glorious din – and glorious is the right word for it. Bombay Bicycle Club’s Ed Nash spent 2016 dropping certified bangers as Toothless; now with his debut full length he’s stepping out of the shadows. There’s also room for one of the UK’s most sparkling underground gems, Menace Beach, the triumphant Cloud Nothings, the ever tasty Loyle Carner, Allison Crutchfield, Cherry Glazerr, Foxygen and loads more.

There’s the official verdict on all the new releases, including The xx‘s new album, plus we catch up with 2016’s Band of the Year The 1975 as they take on London’s O2 for their glorious coronation. In Hype we’re getting up close and personal with Shame and QTY, The Amazons make us a playlist, INHEAVEN send us a dirty postcard, we go goat farming with Kieran from Circa Waves (don’t ask) and Honeyblood take our 20 questions.

The new issue of Dork will be on the streets from record stores and venues from later this month. If you want to make sure you get one, pre-order a copy below, or subscribe to Dork here. You wouldn’t want to miss out, would you?
