On August 18th (a week earlier in some cities), the new issue of The FADER hits newsstands and, along with our regular excellence, features exclusive cover stories on Toronto’s bubbling (and hobbling) superstar Drake and San Francisco’s life-altering rock band Girls. It’s a first for both, as we like to do, and the stories are both incredible—not that we’re biased. Stay tuned for a special preview of the issue next week, and in the following weeks look out for the accompanying audio podcast and free PDF download of the issue itself. We just wanna be successssfuulllll!
