Guttenberg may roll over in his grave if he hears this, The Drug Is Football will be launching a print edition.
Yes. A print edition.
I have been talking about doing a print edition for well over a year with some the people associated with TDIF and we’re finally ready to move forward.
Initially we are planning to be on a biennial schedule with our first full color issue coming out this coming July. As stated previously I wanted to take the blog to a more magazine like site about soccer in New England, and the US with the addition of articles on life, culture, music, style etc. and this is part of that plan. We obviously have our roots in punk rock culture, and the ‘zine was once a very important aspect of that, and is making a comeback and we’re happy to be part of that.
I am happy to say that I have some of my favorite minds on soccer in New England on board to contribute. Content-wise we will be going big picture concepts on New England and MLS soccer with that taking the half of our magazine, and the style, art, culture, life, music element taking the other half along with some consistent columns. Expect it to be irreverent, niche and critical as this blog has always been. We have a few things up our sleeves for this and I can assure you that there will be a good party for the release of our first issue. We’ll be keeping you all updated on the progress as we go along.
