Just A Quick Update

Just thought I should give you guys a quick update on what’s going on right now with DN.

First off, I’m going to be bringing back the Ultimate Playlist, but with a few differences, I’m not 100% sure on how I’m going to do it, but it’s going to be done using Spotify. I’m looking into different ways of doing it, it may be adding a new song every week or a whole new playlist every week. If you have any ideas on how I should do it, tell me in a comment. Also, if you don’t have Spotify, I’d recommend you ask if any of your friend have any spare invites.

I’m also going to be adding some features to give DN readers more of a say. I’ll start using polls to get your opinions on things and see where that takes us. I’m also working on running some competitions through Twitter and Facebook as well as the main site. So follow DN on twitter (@DistNewsNet) and “like” us on Facebook (heres a link, or you could search DistortedNews, also, please invite your friends!)

I hope you enjoy what’s coming on DN! Thanks for sticking with us!

New Domain Name

Hey guys, make sure you update your links and bookmarks, because we have a new domain name!



Head over to our new Formspring page to ask us anything music related!

Attention MC Lars & Bowling For Soup Fans…

DistortedNews will be interviewing them over the next few months, so if you have a question you want to ask them send them in now, either in a comment, a twitter reply to @DistortedNews24 or @SamLStowe or you could email us at Distortednews@live.com.

There will also be reviews of the gigs and if all things go to plan, the interviews will also be on the DN podcast which I am currently trying to get set up.

Things are looking great for DN in 2010, will you join us in the journey?

Over the next week and a half, DistortedNews will be running two very important features, first of all, the DN Awards 2009, which will be up around wednesday, featuring best album, best band and the coveted DN Hall Of Fame award, amonst others.

And after Christmas, it will be retrospective week, looking back at the best bits of the noughties, including a top 10 albums of the decade, and also DN favourites Warpath and 42 Seconds Later will tell you their albums of the decade.

A New Addition To The DistortedNews family

Restrospective Posts

Every now and then (if theres a lack of anything else to post) I will be looking back at bands and albums of yesteryear. Reviewing Classic albums and looking at fantastic bands who sadly got lost in the shuffle.

If you have any suggestions for albums or bands, hit me up with an Email at vanmerde@googlemail.com, leave a comment on this post or send me a reply at @DistortedNews24.

Also, in relation to this (kinda) I’m gonna be starting a feature called The Ultimate Playlist, this will basically be a list of songs that i think everyone should have in their playlists.

First Post XD
