The infamous Tower Records has returned with an online music store and the resurrection of its Pulse! Magazine complete with artist interviews and album reviews.
The site informs readers of its wide selection of music sold on vinyl, CDs, cassette tapes and LPs. The site also includes a plethora of Tower Records merchandise. The original plan for the company’s relaunch was to have it take place at this year’s SXSW festival which would also include pop-up shops, though due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the plans needed to change.
CEO of Tower Records, Danny Zeijdel (replacing Russ Solomon) stated that the return of Tower Records “has been met with tremendous success, feedback. A lot of people are so happy taking pictures of when they receive an order from Tower Records, posting it on Instagram.”
Founded by the now deceased Russ Solomon back in 1960, Tower Records was earning $1.1 billion USD at its peak, coming from 173 stores inside and outside the U.S. Due to its vast inventory, alongside its famous clients like Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, Prince and Elton John. In 2006 the company was liquidated after filing for 2 Chapter 11 bankruptcies and the later Chapter 7 liquidation. This led to all Tower Records locations in the U.S. shutting their doors. Solomon narrated the documentary of Tower Records titled “All Things Must Pass” back in 2015 3 years prior to his death.
