Paste Launches Site Redesign With New Video Vault
Paste is proud to announce, as part of a complete website redesign, The Paste Video Vault—the third largest collection of professionally shot concert videos behind YouTube and Vevo, and the largest free, curated collection of concert videos anywhere on the Internet.
Launching with more than 7,500 videos from 532 artists, the Paste vault ranges from the early 1970s (Miles Davis, The Allman Brothers, The Who) through the ’80s (U2, Lou Reed, The Rolling Stones) and ’90s (Neil Young, Ziggy Marley) all the way to more recent performances from the likes of Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket, The Civil Wars and The Walkmen. Many of the videos were shot at the Paste studios in Decatur, Ga., or at private concert settings around the country, including the annual Paste party in Austin, Texas, during SXSW.
The redesign is the first visual update to the award-winning website in three years, and also features a new “Latest” feed on the homepage and streaming tracks to go along with all record reviews, thanks to a partnership with Rdio. Paste has also added a miscellaneous category in addition to our regular music/movie/TV/videogame/book reviews, allowing us to share our opinions on a variety of topics including comedy albums, plays, gadgets, mobile apps, phones, and, of course, beer.
Since shuttering its print magazine in 2010, the award-winning PasteMagazine.com has become one of the largest and fastest growing entertainment destinations on the Web, quadrupling the number of unique visitors per month from 790,000 to more than 3.3 million in May.
