Now It's Time To Say Good Night

ICE MagazineAfter publishing for 19 years, one of the most reliable and respected music publications is no more. ICE Magazine announced it would no longer provide the best resource around for new music releases. I was a subscriber for several years and when I wasn't, I would consistently seek out the magazine when I'd hit the bookstore. Every issue had surprise news about one of my favorite artists and their upcoming release. Usually, ICE had amazing details long before anybody else. It was an interesting transition a few years ago when they converted to a glossy format. It may have added costs that ultimately led to this, who knows. Eventually, the publisher will provide more details about what happened on the website. Tough business.
