May issue of DIY out now with Mumford and Sons on the cover

The new, May 2015 issue of DIY – fronted by the banjo-ditching Mumford & Sons – is out right now, available to read online, physically via our stockists, or on your iPhone and iPad via Apple Newsstand.

And that’s not all. We’ve got an essential, 84-page Festival Guide 2015 out today, too! Featuring Wolf Alice, Marmozets, Slaves & more, read the whole thing online here.

This month’s mag puts the focus on one of the world’s most beloved and hated bands in equal measure. In May’s cover feature, the group open up about their reputation and their desire to start afresh with new LP ‘Wilder Mind’.

Elsewhere in the new issue, Brandon Flowers heaps praise on the collaborators who helped shape new solo album ‘The Desired Effect’. There’s also Alabama Shakes, Southern rockers who are only just beginning to find their identity.

Also inside, Palma Violets take a trip to the Welsh mountains to find spiritual enlightenment (and the ability to write songs again). Shamir talks about his anti-disco upbringing and how it runs counter to debut album ‘Ratchet’. And we dig deep (very deep) into Blur’s brilliant comeback album, ‘The Magic Whip’.

There’s loads, loads more – you’ll find Best Coast, Demob Happy, Babes in Toyland, DIIV, Deap Vally, Metz, Twin Shadow and Hot Chip.

DIY’s May 2015 and Festival Guide issues are both out now. Pick up a physical copy from our beloved stockists and Dr. Martens stores, or read online for free via Issuu and on yr iPhone / iPad through Apple Newsstand.
