Shout Louder is a UK music zine for punks who don’t like papercuts.
The webzine is the main project, however, I also host the Shout Louder Punk Podcast. I have published two books of short stories about the DIY punk rock community, as part of Shout Louder’s PAPERCUTS series. I’m based in Manchester, UK, and to help support our local scene I regularly update our Manchester Gig Guide. I occasionally put on gigs, too.
My aim is to bring you the view from down the front. I run Shout Louder just for fun, without advertising, sponsorship or profit. Because I love live music, I want to help you discover the best in new punk rock through interviews, columns, podcasts and playlists. If you like what I do, you can support us on Ko-Fi.
Shout Louder has been my passion project since 2016, however, it’s currently on the back-burner whilst I study for a music production degree. I’ll be occasionally posting articles or podcasts when it’s fun to do so, however, I won’t be taking any submissions or working with guest writers. Thanks to everyone who has contributed and supported Shout Louder in the past, and thank you for your patience whilst the site is inactive.
All the best,
Sarah @ Shout Louder
