Remember when buying an album meant something more than adding a dozen audio files to an already endless collection of impersonal mp3s? It was a time when liner notes actually got read and there was something really special about the art that graced an album’s cover. Today, in an industry dominated by iTunes and Pandora, it seems the cover art of an album is getting a little under-appreciated.
Well, we here at Dying Scene aren’t letting the art form die off so easily. Whether bizarre, beautiful, thought provoking, or hilarious, each Tuesday we will present the most interesting album covers from the albums released that week and let you readers vote on which one you think should win “Best Cover Art of the Week!”
This week (October 4th), we’ve got a handful of entries to pick from: new stuff from Misfits, New Found Glory, La Dispute, Blessthefall, We Are The In Crowd, The Bombpops, Transit, Crusades, Juicehead and Mayday Parade. Check out the entries here and cast your vote.
Start the cover art slideshow here to get a closer look at the artwork.
