The New NME

When Bandlab bought the NME brand it signalled a revival of the brand after it finished as a print magazine several years ago. Part of that revival process is launching an Asian music focused site.

An English language Asian indie music focused site will be a great window to a music movement that doesn’t get much attention outside of Asia.

The Asian site joins the UK and Australian sites as well as the Australian print magazine.

The new owners have to field criticisms of it not being like the old days, but nothing is. The continuation of the NME brand is welcome so it can honour its history and continue spreading the message of great music.
