Purevolume to Shut Down

2018-04-11 by Iamthe Nightstars | 28 Comments
The first independently ran streaming website Purevolume.com will be shutting down indefinitely on April 30th. Since 2003 Purevolume has been a promotion tool for bands to host their music and photos as well as post about shows and updates. Over the years many record labels have looked to the site to promote as well as sign new artists. Gym Class Heroes became the first band to be discovered and signed by a label on Purevolume.

That's terrible. I liked the layout of the site. Why would they abandon it?

Never surfed the site, but this is sad.

@Eons, I think they're shutting down the site because it's beyond saving with all of the bugs and server issues it's had in recent years. A lot of music won't play and it won't let you download the songs either.

Haven't been on the site in ages, but it was pretty cool back in the day. Too bad!

Bandcamp probably played a large part in its downfall.

"How is this shutting down before Reverbnation?"

I was thinking the exact same thing.

RIP, I found a lot of music on this site 10-12 years ago. But yeah, it's been broken for years, I'm surprised it wasn't shut down before now

I used it quite a bit in the mid 00s but haven't been on it in quite some time. That's a bummer.

In case anyone cares, the new purevolume is up now. It just has some articles about certain musicians, some celebrities, and pop culture stuff. I'm not sure what the point of the website is...
