High Volume - Issue 1


Born on the road and crafted from crooked barstools and dim venue corners, we’ve built this magazine for all who appreciate the immense value of experience. It is an avenue for the wanderers and an outlet for those who’ve accepted that we’re all dirt-bound and ain’t nothing coming with us.


Our title was chosen as a tongue-in-cheek stab at the moral hypocrisy of modern society and the regressive idea that an unconventional lifestyle is somehow second-rate, “sinful” or self-indulgent. Thus, we carry on in our Ritual and offer a toast to those who join us. In our inaugural issue, ‘High Volume’, we've focused our content around a cornerstone of this publication - rock and roll - and supplemented it with small sampling of what can be expected in future issues.


Be an individual. Be a decent human being. With that in mind, do whatever the hell you like.

 Welcome to our Ritual.
