Celebrating the release of The Dark Knight, LOAD Magazine issue 13 is here spanning music, film, art, style, tv and games.
By far this year's most anticipated film, we review The Dark Knight, while the film stars on our cover, with exclusive artwork by artist Tom Whalen. We also review Hellboy II, Shane Meadow's new film Somers Town, British slasher movie Donkey Punch, Man on Wire and many more. Looking forward to the rest of the year we check out four of the hottest films due before 2009, including Shia LaBeouf's Eagle Eye and Guy Richie's RockNRolla.
Recently releasing their debut album in the UK, we chat to Cage the Elephant about already getting ready to record their second album, fighting and Christian hippy pig farms. Even more excitingly we also track down Cali five-piece Delta Spirit, freshly signed to Rounder Records and set for major success at the end of this year. We also review new albums from CSS, Black Kids and The Shys.
In our art section we feature a glorious set of poster art from cover contributor Tom Whalen, featuring classic films including Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz and Dracula. As for style, we have a fantastic feature entitled 'Fever', shot by LA photographer Jason Lee Parry.
Set for huge things when it airs in the fall, we preview J.J. Abrams' new TV show Fringe and also look forward to Spore in our games section, and review Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
