Radio Silence Announces Newest Print Issue & Digital Platform with Original Writing by Ian MacKaye

Radio Silence, the award-winning magazine of literature and rock & roll, is releasing its much-anticipated third print issue on November 22. The latest edition of this revered magazine features original work by twenty-two world-renowned musicians and authors, including a first-time-ever memoir by Lucinda Williams; a conversation between Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket) and Portlandia and Sleater-Kinney star Carrie Brownstein; fiction by contemporary American playwright David Ives; a new poem by New Yorker poetry editor and Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Muldoon; an interview with punk legend Ian MacKaye; essays by author Rick Moody and legendary culture critic Greil Marcus; a conversation between best-selling author Tobias Wolff and his jazz musician son Patrick Wolff; and more.

Radio Silence is also launching an innovative monthly digital magazine, available on the web and as a free app for iOS and Android. The debut issue of this new platform features a conversation between twenty-time Grammy-winner Bruce Springsteen and former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. Each monthly digital issue will include reviews of books and records, unreleased songs by well-known musicians, and original interviews. Author Jonathan Lethem will be featured in the December issue.

Radio Silence was founded in 2012 by a small group of writers, musicians, and artists, including Board members Neko Case and Zach Rogue. “We’re really excited about our third print issue,” says Editor-in-Chief Dan Stone. “It’s the best thing we’ve done. And I really believe that our new digital platform is a big step forward for the relatively young medium of digital magazine publishing. It’s simple, intuitive, and includes work by the greatest artists around.”

Radio Silence issue 03 is available for pre-order now at and will be sold at select retailers nationwide. The issue will be released with a marquee event in New York on November 22.
