Months in the making and years in the waiting, ALARM Magazine is back! We’ve been quiet on the publishing end since our release of Chromatic: The Crossroads of Color and Music last year, but we’re happy to announce the bimonthly return of the mag, now with an increased focus on rock-’n’-roll culture and lifestyle.
Launching first on the iPad (for free!) and later this year in print, the new ALARM Magazine still has all of the same in-depth features, Q&As, and reviews. But now you’ll read more about musicians and their lives, passions, and challenges, whether that’s following a band on tour, getting a music lesson on an exotic instrument, or checking out a guitarist’s comic-book collection.
Inside our July/August iPad issue, which can be downloaded for free at iTunes, you’ll read or see:
– Omar Rodriguez Lopez (of The Mars Volta) changing his dictatorial ways
– Maynard James Keenan (of Tool) at his Arizona vineyard
– Meshuggah discussing its mammoth new album
– Rodrigo y Gabriela on going vegan
– Fred Armisen’s favorite Portland spots
– Battles and the art of the remix
– Sargent House founder Cathy Pellow redefining the management-label relationship
– High on Fire going “back to basics”
– Dan Deacon discussing his formal education
– A Place to Bury Strangers taking us inside the Death by Audio warehouse/studio
And much, much more. Please share, and come back soon for print subscriptions.
