Josh Jackson, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Decatur-based music publication Paste, just posted the following announcement on the magazine's website:

Today Paste Media Group announces, with deepest sadness, the suspension of the Paste magazine print product.

Struggles with mounting debt were made public last year when our readers responded with generosity to save the magazine. But the prolonged downturn of the ad market has forced a hiatus. All subscribers have access to the digital version of their magazines through the June/July issue on PasteMagazine.com. Paste, while considering strategic alternatives, is focusing on its digital assets, including PasteMagazine.com.

We thank all of those who have shown such tremendous support to a vision of independent media focused on Signs of Life in Music, Film & Culture, including subscribers, advertisers, writers, photographers, illustrators, publicists, record labels, movie studios, book & game publishers and others in the press.

Rumors of the publication's demise started circulating Tuesday evening after management broke the news to staff, and was all but confirmed come yesterday afternoon.

It's genuinely sad to see a fellow print publication bite the dust.
