Our latest print issue focuses on artists engaged in all forms of activism, including features with Wayne Coyne, Keedron Bryant, Dinner Party, Ho99o9, and Lauren Halsey, as well as stories detailing the Save Our Stages and Rock the Vote movements. All proceeds from the issue benefit the National Independent Venue Alliance’s emergency relief fund.
Today we’re excited to unveil our latest print issue, FLOOD 11: The Action Issue, which is now available online and in physical format.
Order a copy of the special print edition here with the option of three different covers (H.E.R., David Byrne, and Vic Mensa) with the reverse cover featuring original artwork from Shepard Fairey. All proceeds will benefit the National Independent Venue Alliance (NIVA) emergency relief fund to help #SaveOurStages.
While we’ve been subjected to plenty of news stories throughout 2020 that have made things feel hopeless, the aim of The Action Issue is to shine a light on the many ways in which artists are leading the way toward a brighter future. Issue 11’s cover stories include a conversation between H.E.R. and rapper Cordae about their continued fight for justice following a summer of turbulent protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, while our interview with Vic Mensa focuses on his community engagement upon returning to his roots in Chicago. Our third story focuses on David Byrne’s new project “We Are Not Divided,” a multimedia online endeavor which spells out the ways in which our country is more united than we’re often led to believe.

Among the non-music features, we have interviews with artist and community activist Lauren Halsey, the crew behind the change-driving design lab Amplifier, the subjects and filmmakers of the documentary Boys State, and the director of the doc Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President.
Topped off with Breaking stories on S.G. Goodman, Nailah Hunter, Knot, Ghetto Kumbé, Chad Goes Deep, and the blossoming music careers of actors Nicholas Braun and Nabhaan Rizwan and the activism these artists have been engaging in, the issue covers plenty of ground.
