Kerrang! to cease production for three months due to Covid-19 pandemic

The magazine says it has become "virtually impossible" to produce during lockdown.

Kerrang! has announced that it is temporarily suspending publication of its print magazine due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The publication said it had become "virtually impossible to distribute a weekly magazine effectively" while the UK is on lockdown.

A statment on Kerrang's website also said that "the widespread cancellation and/or postponement of major festivals, tours and album releases also means that we are unable to deliver key pieces of coverage in May and June."

The magazine plans to be back on shelves on Wednesday, July 8 and will continue to publish weekly from that point onwards.

While Kerrang! magazine is out of action, the publication plans to unveil a "number of exciting plans... in the next week or so that will provide you with further entertainment during these turbulent times."

If you are a Kerrang! subsrcriber, subscriptions will be extended to take into account the break.
