Advertising in Maximumrocknroll magazine:

The ad deadline is the 15th of every month. The magazine comes out around the 15th of the following month, and the cover date is the month after that (e.g., June 15 would be the deadline for the August issue, which hits the streets mid-July).

We only accept ads from bands/labels/publishers that we would cover in our reviews sections (garage/punk/hardcore–NO MAJOR LABELS–independent publishers only). Other types of advertisers we take on a case-by-case basis. New advertisers, please contact us before sending us an ad or payment.

PLEASE NOTE: Running an ad in Maximumrocknroll does not mean that you’ll get a good review or have your band featured in the magazine. We choose our features based on what our writers and editors want to include in the magazine, not on who buys an ad.
