For a little over a year now, we have been posting press releases, interviews, photos, and videos from the bands you love as well as up-and-coming bands that we think have a lot of potential. In that time, our website has received over 1.3 million hits! In the past, our stories have basically been in a blog style format. Nothing much going on visually. Well, guess what. The debut issue of our full-fledged magazine is finally here!
This issue features many great bands and music industry figures as well as some really awesome photography work, stellar design, and of course, great writing! Among the contents of this issue, you’ll find out what the journey has been like for the past 10 years with As I Lay Dying as well as hear about what AILD means to the scene from various members of iwrestledabearonce and Of Mice & Men. You will also get the latest on touring and writing music from Pierce the Veil, info about the formation of Jerry Roush‘s new band, Glass Cloud, and you’ll be able to read some review of some of our favorite albums as well as which albums made it into our top 10 list. Find out about a new non-profit organization called Face Yourself, that takes a stand against bullying. We have a feature on Youtube sensations, Pinn Panelle and the art of combining electronic elements into heavy music. You’ll also be able to hear from Mitch Brown, tour manager for Woe, Is Me, just what it takes to be a TM and what that job entails. Take a look at our “Unsigned Spotlight” features with bands that stand out in their local scenes. This is only a portion of the awesome content within, so we hope you enjoy what we’ve been working on so hard for the past couple months!
