Good Things 2023 is only months away, and with a line-up including Fall Out Boy, Limp Bizkit, Corey Taylor, Sepultura and Behemoth it is easy to get lost in the big names and the hype.

But there are a plethora of bands that will potentially make up the next generation of music. Bands that might not be on your radar now, but if you allow yourself to venture outside of your comfort zone and check them out, could well rise to the top of your personal playlist based on just one listen.

“Energy. A lot of energy. A lot of running back and forth. A lot of good times and good vibes.”

Joshua Roberts

One of those bands is Magnolia Park, a band known for their unique blend of hip-hop, hard rock, pop-punk and alt-pop and also one whose star is very much on the rise.

Earlier this month the band dropped two EPs simultaneously in MoonEater and SoulEater, each showcasing differing sides to the band’s musical psyche.

HEAVY caught up with frontman Joshua Roberts to find out more.

“It’s so exciting,” he enthused about Good Things. “Just to see the line-up and be a part of this legendary festival is amazing.”

We ask Joshua to introduce us to Magnolia Park.

“Magnolia Park is a… I like to call us a hybrid pop/punk style of band,” he measured, “because we put so much fusion and different cultures and sounds in our music. We are very energetic. Most of our songs are about mental health problems and being broke on a Tuesday (laughs), so it definitely has a little bit of everything and I think that people will like it if they give it a chance.”

In the full interview, Joshua discusses the Good Things line-up, who he is most looking forward to playing with, preparing for your first tour of a new country, what he is expecting, what we should expect from them, the blending of styles in Magnolia Park‘s music and how they make it work, dropping two EPs at the same time and why, how they each showcase different sides of Magnolia Park, how they differ from last year’s debut album Baku’s Revenge and more.
