Over the past decade and a half, savvy readers have found ALARM buried under the mountains of mainstream enablers, hype mags, and gear journals. Our unwavering dedication to uncovering the best and most progressive bands of the contemporary rock landscape—from space rock to psychobilly and from grunge to grindcore—places an emphasis on the artists who actually move music forward.
In 2012, we’re re-launching our namesake title, ALARM Magazine, with an eye toward rock-and-roll culture and exclusive content. We’ll still have in-depth features and album profiles, covering all the bases of rock and beyond, but now readers will find crazy instrument collections, bands interviewing each other, studio visits, Q&As with record labels, music-based travel guides, and conversations about musicians’ lives.
ALARM Press will continue to publish music books intermittently—including our recent title Chromatic: The Crossroads of Color and Music and the forthcoming Assault of the Earth: Metal Bands from Around the Globe—but in the meantime, we’re excited to bring back ALARM Magazine on a bimonthly basis. Look for the new ALARM on newsstands this summer.
