ALARM 41Since 1995, ALARM Press has acted as a constant advocate for independent music, art, and design. Our passion in discovering and sharing exceptional, boundary-defying musicians and designers is shared by our tireless cast of contributors, which helps ALARM forge a likeminded community to support and promote new and innovative ideas.

Approaching its 20th anniversary, ALARM Magazine has featured beloved bands and future favorites alike, ranging from big names such as Mike Patton, Queens of the Stone Age, Air, The Mars Volta, Atmosphere, Jon Spencer, Saul Williams, and the Melvins to upcoming and unheralded artists such as Isis, Russian Circles, El-P, Mr. Lif, and Dub Trio.

In ALARM, you won’t find the same rehashed quotes from the same ten bands doing the press circuit. We’re committed to covering the bands that you need to hear, not just the ones whose names you recognize.
