It was missing an article for the last week, so we though we’d wait until now to let you know what the new issue of Fan the Fire is out now.

Already making their mark in their native France and across Europe, upcoming electro band We Are Enfant Terrible get the interview treatment. We chat to them about writing songs in English, 8-bit video games and eating lobsters. In the review stakes we rule over new albums from Metric, Little Boots, Kasabian, The Answering Machine plus a few more.

The talk of the cinematic world this month is undoubtedly Terminator Salvation. Looking back over the original trilogy, we delve into what makes the deadly cyborgs click. Alongside a review of John Connor’s next war on the machines we also assist your movie-going flirtations when it comes to Drag Me To Hell, Star Trek, Awaydays, Tormented, Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian and a couple more. Plus, to get you excited for rest of the year, we tell you why you should be excited about the summer’s movies including Dead Snow, Ponyo and The Road.

Providing our back and front covers, our art and style features are amongst the most breathtaking we’ve had so far. James Jirat Patradoon’s screenprinted masked brawlers will have you on the edge of your seat while Reno Ranger’s double feature will sparkle your eyes away then bring them back down to earth in an empty car park.

You can read the issue above, or download it here.

FAN THE FIRE is a digital magazine about lifestyle and creative culture. Launching back in 2005 as a digital publication about Sony’s PSP handheld games console, we’ve grown and evolved now covering the arts and lifestyle, architecture, design and travel.
