Every year, the editors of AP gather around one computer with excellent speakers, listen to hundreds of bands and sometimes have sword fights and/or shouting matches to curate 100 bands we really, really think you need to put on your radar. It all culminates in one giant printed feature profiling those 100 artists.

This year’s 100 Bands issue (AP 321 featuring cover stars Pierce The Veil) is out now on newsstands, online and digitally. As you get to know the new artists in print, you can listen along to (almost) all of them here via the playlist below or click here to download our digital edition and listen to ALL 100 SONGS and more! Available for iPhone, iPad and Android. You’re welcome.


Note: Music from the following three artists was not included on Spotify, but clicking on their names will take you to a place where you can hear it!

Golden Age | Royal Psalms | Drama Club
