July 31st will be the final new band featured in the app
However, this update ensures that you can still access all of the previously-featured bands. We’ve also included a special mixtape of some of our staff favorites from over the years, which can be accessed by tapping the play button on August 1st. Thanks to everyone who supported us over the years, and to all of bands for creating and sharing their amazing music!
As of July 31, 2015, we will no longer be updating Band of the Day app. From 2011 - 2015, Band of the Day unearthed the best new music by delivering one new artist a day, every single day. Through expert curation, free music (commercial-free and uninterrupted), a stunning user interface, videos, photos, bios, and more, we helped you discover over 1400 new bands from all over the world.
During this time, we had the honor of being selected as App of the Year Runner-Up (to Instagram in 2011), iPhone and iPad App of the Week, and iPhone and iPad Hall of Fame. Band of the Day was also a New York Times: Top 10 App of 2011, and was featured in TechCrunch, Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, CNN, Chicago Tribune, Gizmodo, and more.
It was incredible being able to share so many new music discoveries with our users, and even though we won’t be featuring anymore new bands in the app, you will still be able to access all of the previously-featured content within the app. After July 31st, we welcome you to still interact with us through @bandoftheday and facebook.com/bandoftheday.
Thanks to everyone who supported us over the years, and to all of bands for creating and sharing their amazing music!
