As they aim for the big time with second album Joyland.
Take a good look at our brand new cover stars. This fortnight, Dublin pop-rockers Keywest open up as we ask the question: "Are they the next Irish band to conquer the world?" After years toiling on the streets, getting their music out there and doing it their way, you can't say the cover hasn't been hard-earned.
inside the issue, Andy Kavanagh and Andrew "Glove" Glover from the quintet discuss their unorthodox journey to the top and say: "We don't want to be all over the tabloids – we're happy in the background just selling out shows all over the world."
Also on the agenda? Working in retail, their stories from the road, second album Joyland and how they truly are a total DIY band.
To read all about it, pick up the new issue, hitting shelves Thursday October 1, or order online direct from hotpress.com.
