Z!NG Revolution, the fresh new pop culture vinyl skins company, announces a unique partnership with the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Z!NG Revolution will be the official skin company for the festival, “skinning” CMJ Union, CMJ’s own venue, featuring the festival’s official Artist & Press Lounge. All skins on site will be powered by Z!NG Revolution. Z!ING will also be giving away over 5,000 limited edition CMJ iPhone skins throughout the festival.

The CMJ Artist & Press Lounge at CMJ Union, located at 27 Union Square East from October 16 through 19 and is opened to CMJ credentialed press and artists from 11AM- 4PM.

In conjunction with the CMJ Music Marathon partnership, Z!NG is also announcing its Indie Artist Initiative with the Z!NG Customizer Tool. With no upfront cost to the artist, any indie act or label can now seamlessly incorporate the Z!NG design tool onto their website and sell their own custom skins directly to their fans. All orders will be sent directly to Z!NG for printing and fulfillment.

Z!NG provides “skins” to fit any range of items from personal electronic devices, accessories and home décor – such as phones or laptops, and even skateboards, long boards, mini refrigerators and dorm room walls. With thousands and thousands of licensed images, and the ability to create your own custom image, Z!NG skins are the next generation marketing tool for emerging bands and artists.

“One day I looked up and realized I wanted us to do more for the indie music world since I am still a working singer songwriter myself. So we created this design tool to expand merch offerings for artists to sell more stuff, make more money, build their brand the indie way at no cost to them except the time to integrate the tool with Z!NG. This offering is truly personal,” remarked Laura Lavi, Managing Partner, Z!ng Revolution. “We thought what better place to launch our Indie Artist Initiative than at CMJ Music Marathon.”

All Z!NG skins boast an HD quality image on patented 3M vinyl with air release technology and protective oracle, which allows customers to apply and remove their skins without any leftover residue or air bubbles. Changing your “skin” is as easy as changing your outfit-it’s just adding a little Z!NG to your life.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
