  • The internet-only music publication Pitchfork is finally wading into the world of print.

    On December 14th, Pitchfork Media will debut the first issue of The Pitchfork Review, a new quarterly magazine that will focus on “long-form feature stories, photography, design, cartoons and other ephemera.”

    “There’s a lot of potential to rethink what people want out of a music magazine,” Pitchfork founder and CEO Ryan Schreiber tells Fast Company. “The tide has really shifted since we started Pitchfork in the mid-’90s. Then, there was no music criticism online; now, there’s very little in print. There’s all kinds of talk about how physical media is dying, but the popularity of vinyl is rising, and there has been a rise in literary and culture publications. It’s not dead, it just needs substance.”

    Individual issues will run $19.96, but Pitchfork will also offer subscriptions. The regular pricing is $49.99 a year (U.S.), but if you act now you can get an early subscription rate of $44.99. According to Pitchfork, signing up early also gives you access to exclusive digital content, special event invites, and a special limited edition gift.

    The first issue will include the debut of original cartoons, never-before published photography, and stories on Otis Redding and Glenn Danzig.

    Pitchfork.com launched back in 1995 and has focused on indie-heavy coverage – most notably reviews. Back in May, Pitchfork launched The Dissolve, a film criticism site.
