Editor’s Note

Bullet For My Valentine’s ‘Hand Of Blood’ was one of my first forays into the world of heavy music. I remember seeing the video clip of MTV and needing to find out more – listening to that whole EP was a pretty seminal experience in that then 13 year old’s life. Flash forward 13 years, and I’m pretty stoked to have that same band on the cover of our magazine. We got really take a look inside the brain of vocalist Matt Tuck as they prepare to release sixth studio album.

We also take a deep dive into Melbourne Documentary Film Festival to help you navigate their huge program, chat with one of our faves Emilee South about her upcoming performance for Leaps and Bounds, hear from the glorious Regina Spektor before she touches down in Melbourne, and chat with The Rubens about creating their new album in a World War I bunker.

If you’re as keen as I am to relive your weekend while we wait for the next one to arrive, head on over to our Reclink Cup recap. It’s hangover free, so that makes it twice the fun, right?
