Artrocker Magazine Goes 100% Tablet Publication!
Artrocker Magazine adds Google Play Store and Amazon to its digital distribution portfolio after successful iPad launch
As of 28th February 2013 Artrocker Magazine will be going 100% digital! We can’t express in words how excited we are about taking the magazine 100% tablet and the opportunities it brings for an independent music magazine publisher like us; but we’re jubilant, to say the least.
Following the magazine’s launch on the iPad last year we will also be launching Issue 127 on the Google Play Store and on Amazon for all you Android and Kindle Fire (including HD) users – so we hope you were good Artrockers and got Santa to bring you a tablet for Christmas!
Since the worldwide, and much-heralded, launch of the magazine on the iPad and the release of our Official Special Edition Gary Numan App, we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response and the opportunities for forward-thinking, innovative applications of digital when making a new music magazine.
“Artrocker has always been an innovator,” says Artrocker Co-Founder and Editor-In-Chief Tom Fawcett, “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 10 years later, still going strong and again utilising the technology and tools available to us.”
The launch issue will feature an exclusive interview with ex-Nirvana tub thumper, Foo Fighters frontman and all round ‘nicest man in rock’n’roll’ Dave Grohl and includes an EXCLUSIVE personal video tour of Grohl’s studio in LA as he prepared for the rehearsals of his much-heralded new Sound City All-Stars band. Plus you can read, see and hear him talk about making his debut as a director, reminisce about his days in Nirvana and tell us why he doesn’t give a shit what people think about him playing with Paul McCartney – “It’s Paul McCartney, who wouldn’t want to play with him. Come on!”
