Artrocker magazine goes digital

Artrocker

Artrocker Magazine has announced that it is ditching its print edition and will now be available exclusively in digital form. As previously reported, its publishers launched an iPad edition last year, and the next edition will also be available via the Google Play Store for Android users, as well as on Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

Artrocker’s Editor-In-Chief Tom Fawcett told CMU: “Artrocker has always been an innovator. When people were still ‘clubbing’ in the noughties we started a rock n roll night and put on the first London shows by the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, The Black Keys, Interpol, Maximo Park and so many more great bands that went on to reshape music and culture on a global level. When people were saying the music industry was dead we launched a record label and suddenly the tide turned and vinyl sales rose for the first time in over a decade. People were saying ‘Magazines are over’ so we started a magazine, and here we are, almost ten years later, still going strong and again utilising the technology and tools available to us”.

So, there you go.
