Dec 2017 29

2017 has come to and end. It’s Release’s 31th year (!) and 2017 also marked the 20th anniversary of this web edition in English.

Release was founded by another team as a photo copied, Swedish fanzine in Umeå in 1986. The printed magazine went on to be one of the leading music magazines in Sweden. 1995-98 Release was on sale in close to 1 000 newsstands and stores in Scandinavia.

Hopefully we will have time to do something special for the next Release anniversary (our 35th?). We intend to stick around. Unfortunately, although our readership base is strong, it’s difficult to run a magazine these days. But with more support we could do more. Each ad, click and post count, so if you like what we do, please support us and help us spread the word. More interviews, a bigger staff and an upgraded site are first on our list.

We wish to thank all our readers, supporters and friends for your support 2017.

Happy New Year!

Mikael Kahrle
Editor-in-chief
