Well, from A Day To Remember to a year to remember (its a joke, right?), 2013 is coming to an end and its time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. That said, I think we can get away with a quick look back on the year that’s past, before we get started on the new one.
For me, the most significant thing about the last year has been the number of bands running Pledgemusic campaigns for their album releases. From Bring Me The Horizon‘s critically acclaimed ‘Sempiternal’ to indie stars Hard-Fi and a whole hoarde of newer artists, it seems like the livelihood of musicians will be based around ‘extra’ items – VIP passes, merchandise and even live streaming rather than the traditional model of create and album, sell album, profit that has gone on for so long..
Anyway, let’s end on a cheerful note, shall we? One album I’m definitely looking forward to next year is You Me At Six‘s ‘Cavalier Youth’, which is out on January 27th. If you haven’t had a listen already, here’s a little snippet for you:
See you guys in the new year..
