Tomorrow I’m moving out of this room. It’s served me well as both a living space and a home office during my couple of years of freelancing – and it’s one of the only places since university that I’ve felt properly at home.
I’m looking forward to moving into my new flat though, as well as the inspiration that always comes with a change of scenery.

A photo I took on a walk in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, last year. Very foreboding.

I went along to the #KERRANGTOUR2014 and met one of my all time heroes, Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland (pictured here as the ghost of Hunter S Thompson… possibly)

I finally have a new photo in Kerrang! to replace the one that makes my head look even more colossal. Oh and Diamond Youth are still amazing.

Top 10 Tracks of 2013

Here’s a playlist of my Top 10 Tracks of 2013, as listed on Kerrang.com. I also wrote a short piece on my Number One song, Passing Through A Screen Door.

The Wonder Years - Passing Through a Screen Door:

'Jesus Christ! I'm 26. All the people I've graduated with all have kids, all have wives, all have people who care if they come home at night!' go the lyrics. Did I somehow write this song myself without realising? No. But I wish I had - and that's why it's my favourite song of the year.

Happy Christmas from me and the rest of the Kerrang! gang. So much love for everyone in this photo.

Here’s the new Signature Brew beer, it’s called Black Tongue and it’s made especially for metal band Mastodon. It’s an 8.3% double black IPA and it tastes as terrifying and magnificent as it sounds. I commissioned New York based illustrator David M. Cook (aka Bonethrower) to do the label illustration and custom typeface, really pleased with how it turned out \m/

Here’s the four page feature that I wrote for Kerrang! magazine in Las Vegas with Stone Temple Pilots and Chester Bennington. Really nice dudes, Chester’s one of my heroes from when I was a kid so was great to chat face to face with him. Really proud of this bit of writing.
