Drum! Magazine DRUM! Interactive Reeling in More Than 10,000 Impressions Per Day Since November Launch; Current Issue Features Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins' Reflections And Confessions

Enter Music Publishing, publishers of hip, drum percussion magazines worldwide, has experienced strong growth with more than 10,000 impressions per day with its newest title, DRUM! Interactive (www.drumdigital.com), since its launch in November of 2007. DRUM! Interactive's quick success results from several factors: a unique, flip-page format, embedded movies and multimedia, and the diversity of content derived from its highly popular sister publication, DRUM!.

The current DRUM! Interactive cover story features Taylor Hawkins, who reflects on his 10-year tenure with the Foo Fighters backing his best friend, Dave Grohl. In fact, he gives full credit to Grohl for helping him get his life and career together.

At the same time, he discusses the day to-day challenges of playing in a band that already includes a world-famous drummer and breaks down the specific drum parts that defined the Foo Fighters sound.

“There's such a personal, human quality that DRUM! Interactive captures so well,” said Phil Hood, publisher of Enter Music Publishing. “The reader really has the opportunity to learn so much about a specific drummer's style. A good example of DRUM! Interactive's powerful presentation is found in the link to the video drum solo of Grohl and Hawkins together.”

The December edition of DRUM! Digital (drumdigital.com) includes terrific features, many with links to instructional videos and lessons:

  • How to play the greatest soul grooves of the Seventies
  • Mike Novak: The heavy hitter behind "Every Time I Die"
  • Life on the Road with Hatebreed
  • Achieving the Perfect Snare Sound in the Studio
  • How to play "Walking Disaster" by Sum 41's Steve Jocz
  • Five complete lessons in the “Practice Pad” section

The issue also includes profiles of Chris Pennie (Coheed And Cambria), John Boecklin (DevilDriver, and Chuck Treece (McRad). Readers also have the opportunity to check out the latest gear since there are links to ads.

Issues of DRUM! Interactive are released monthly on the last day of the cover date of DRUM! Magazine.
