The new issue of Dork, featuring cover stars The 1975, is out today.
We gathered Matty, George, Adam and Ross together in East London right before they headed out on their huge North American At Their Very Best tour for a rare full-band interview and shoot. It leads off a bumper double-edition of the magazine in stunning style.
As well as a supersized feature, exclusive photos, and your fan questions, there’s a whole bunch of other exciting stuff to get your teeth into in the most wonderful Dork of the year.
Elsewhere, you’ll find the full-fat version of our 2023 Hype List. Featuring Dylan, piri & tommy, Crawlers, STONE, Priestgate, Flowerovlove, ELIO, The Dinner Party and almost 100 other exciting new names for the year ahead, it’s your essential listening guide for everything fresh and fantastic. We’ve got our Best of 2022 lists, including our albums of the year run down, the tracks that have made the biggest impact, and the results of our 2022 Dork Readers’ Poll (of course he won both hero and plonker of the year – Ed). Plus, there are interviews with the likes of The Amazons, DMA’s, Walt Disco, L.S. Dunes, Cavetown and loads, loads more.
To make it even more of a treat, we’re also offering up a set of fan exclusive cover variants. While the main magazine we’ll be sending out into the world features The 1975 in full, you can also order direct from us special individual covers featuring your favourite member. Take your pick, or grab a bundle of all five covers worldwide, and we’ll send them direct to your door.
The December 2022 / January 2023 issue of Dork is out now. You can order a copy below, or via our shop here. If you want to subscribe to the magazine, you can do so here.
We’re not done there, though. When putting out a magazine this spectacular, we need to celebrate it – so we’re throwing a launch party. Earlier in the year, we celebrated the release of ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language”s lead single ‘Part of the Band’ by putting on our very own The 1975 inspired club night Love It If We Played It. Now, we’re bringing it back for a second instalment. We’ll be spinning all your favourite The 1975-related bops and bangers at London’s Colours Hoxton on Wednesday, 23rd November. Tickets are available now for £5 + booking fees, with all profits in aid of Shelter. If you were at the first edition, you’ll know exactly how ridiculous it was. Poor cardboard Matty. You can grab your tickets here now.
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!
