We've never needed heavy music like we do in 2020. Heavy music like the Deftones' White Pony, a game-changing alt-metal classic with the power to soothe, purge and energize. Heavy music like Run the Jewel's RTJ4, a brutally honest and exuberantly relevant masterpiece that couldn't have spoken more eloquently to the moment of its arrival. Heavy music like Greg Puciato's uncontainable solo debut, which surges and soars across genres, sounds and emotions with thrilling abandon.
Deftones, Run the Jewels and Greg Puciato appear across the collectible covers of Revolver's new Summer 2020 Issue. You can pick up those variants of the magazine — as well as a limited-edition Deftones box set featuring four exclusive covers, and a Puciato bundle featuring limited-edition vinyl and an exclusive slipcase — now via our store. See a full list of the issue's contents below.
