Announcing Our New ThisNewBand Team Members!

We are so excited to reveal our new ThisNewBand team members and our new editorial direction.

Starting tomorrow, we will begin to feature new artists every day, called our Artist Of The Day!

We are also introducing new regularly-occurring columns, including:

  • Behind The Barricade, a deep look into our community, exploring the lifestyle and culture behind die-hard music lovers and the ways we show devotion to the bands we love.
  • How To Get A Job At, a series of interviews with people who have sweet jobs in the music industry, where we talk about how they got there, and how you can get a job there too! Featured companies include Big Picture Media, Vans Warped Tour, SideOneDummy Records, and Rolling Stone.
  • Science + Music explores the science behind humans and their interaction with music. First up: how your brain reacts when you listen to music. Super cool.
