As of December 2012 CtrlAltRock is on hiatus.

We’ve had a great run these past few years, but feel that we can no longer dedicate as much time to the site as we would wish to, and have decided that for now it is best to take a break. We may return to this project some time down the line, or we may create something completely new – but the site will remain online as is for the foreseeable future.

We’d like to thank everyone for their support over the years – friends, fans, the record labels, extremely helpful PR firms and of course the bands themselves – it’s been a wonderful experience and we appreciate all the opportunities that we have been lucky enough to have had and shared with you all on this site.

For now if you’re looking for your pop-punk/rock fix we’d like to suggest some of the following sites:  TakeaShot (who Shiona will now be contributing to from time to time) , DIY, Noise Violation,  and Bring The Noise to get your music news fix.
