Uncut launches new magazine

Uncut has unveiled plans that will see it launch a new monthly magazine and expand its portfolio.

The History of Rock will focus on the heritage of rock music and shine the spotlight on a different year in history and the rock music of that time.

Content from the NME, Melody Maker and Uncut archives will be repurposed to provide intimate interviews, special features and music photography.

It will also be feature brand new editorial content.

John Mulvey, Editor of Uncut, said: “Back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, NME and Melody Maker had incredible access to artists who shaped music as we know it; legendary figures who, these days, would be totally unapproachable.

“Here at Uncut, we’re very privileged to have the keys to such an archive of seminal journalism, and The History of Rock seems like a great way to share the best of those stories with our readers today.”

The first issue is called The History of Rock: 1965 and revisits rock legends The Beatles on location filming Help.

Available in both print and digital, The History of Rock hits newsstands on July 9, with a cover price of £9.99.
