Issue 80 of Black Velvet Zine is out now and is Black Velvet's 20 Year Anniversary Issue!

It includes:

The following interviews:

MisterNothing chat about reaching out to other people in their songs, how some bands are scared of writing a catchy tune as they don't want to sell out, how they'd like to play more shows with bands they like and fit with and how younger bands don't get the exposure they deserve.

Within Temptation's Sharon den Adel discusses seizing the day, Robert's racing, how they've been chased in cars, and hearing your own songs on the hotel jukebox.

Taking Back Sunday's Adam Lazzara and John Nolan chat about how safe they feel with their life, how the ocean is being turned into land, how some people complain for the sake of complaining and laugh at how bassist Shaun used 'YOLO' in a tweet.

Less Than Jake's Chris DeMakes tells us what makes him roar, when he last got in trouble, how he'd like to be a dad (but hopes it isn't when he's 60) and who he'd like to haunt if he was a ghost.

Sons Of The Sea's Brandon Boyd chats about how art slips through people's hands, how the more questions he asks, the more confused he gets, how he sees the ocean as mother and what item he'd phase out to help the environment.

Tom Keifer chats about the dark time he went through when he had paralysis of his left vocal cord, what he's like to live with, how we all go through hard times and it's how you process it and come out the other side that makes you stronger, and how he left 'Thick & Thin' on cassette for his wife when he had to leave town.

We Are The In Crowd's Jordan Eckes and Mike Ferri chat about vegan coffee, reunion tours, writing the best song in the world and how reading the tweets after their Reading Festival performance last year was the best part of the day.

Decade's Joe Marriner chats about epiphanies, having doubts and gaining confidence, bad hygiene on tour and how they've stopped trying to conform to one genre.

Room 94 chat about how it would be cool to have a rapper on a song, how Dean is likely to leave you holding his bag, how Kit would like to ask Miley Cyrus inappropriate questions and how they'd like to record music up a tall building... like the Eiffel Tower.

Jet Pack tell us how they're relentless, how they live in a scene that with enough funding a band can play whatever tour/festival they want, how music saves lives and who they think is salt of the earth.

Will Black tells us why Richie Sambora has inspired him for over 20 years, how he co-wrote two songs through email with Chris Sterberl, how he started a podcast to connect with other artists and what his latest release, 'Dangerously Close' tells us about him.

Rat Attack's (ex-vocalist) Mike Hodges chats about the obstacles the band met on tour, about writing Summer and Winter songs, how his (now ex-) band mates led him astray and what his perfect Saturday night actually is.

Concert reviews including All Time Low, Steel Panther, Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, We Are The In Crowd, Reel Big Fish/Less Than Jake, Octane Ok and Taking Hayley.
