Define the Meaning to close doors
For Immediate Release
After six wonderful years of publishing Define The Meaning, given the current state of the economy and being on hiatus for over a year, we have officially decided to close our doors. Being around since 2005, we did what we can to push the zine further, but unfortunately things did not work in our favor. Although this is a sad time, we couldn’t be more thankful for all the love and support we received from all of the bands, record labels, publicists, distribution companies, and hardcore, punk, and metal fans from all over the world. Without your strong support we wouldn’t have been able to make it as far as we did.
The last edition of Define the Meaning, featuring The Dillinger Escape Plan, was printed in 2010. The next planned issue, Issue #11, remains unreleased. It featured exclusive stories and photos with the members of Slayer, Megadeth and Testament from their 2010 tour together. Potential plans of releasing a digital version of the issue remain uncertain.
We would like to take this time to give special thanks to those who have helped us throughout our six great years:
