No Depression Magazine Ceases Publication

The music magazine No Depression will cease publication following its May-June 2008 issue. In a letter to readers, the publishers indicated a drop in ad revenue, transitions at record labels, the decline of brick-and-mortar retail stores and the rising cost of paper and shipping costs for the closure. First published in September 1995, the magazine is well known for its extensive coverage of American roots music. The March-April issue is currently on its way to subscribers and stores. Plans are continuing to expand No Depression’s official Web site.
