The new issue of Dork, featuring Sundara Karma, is out now!

Reading's finest Sundara Karma 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’ out now, they’re making sure we start the year in style, punching 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, out today (Friday, 20th January). 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 is available from record stores and venues. If you want to make sure you get one, pre-order a copy below, or subscribe to Dork here. You can also read it online in full here. You wouldn’t want to miss out, would you?
