“A Broken Line” is a three piece outfit from Long Beach, California, that has joined the Thumper Punk Records family of bands. The diversity of their hometown makes its way into the band’s sound which is an eclectic mix of street punk, ska, pop punk, metal, and good ol’ rock n roll. The band is known for their fiery live shows, powerful sound, and lyrics that reflect the battle for faith in a difficult world. The trio met at church and began playing house shows to raise money for the charity HOPE Worldwide. Slowly the band was given more opportunities to play shows in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Riverside at parking lots, bars, backyards, venues, even a mini-golf course. Ever since day one, the mission has remained the same: know God and make God known. A Broken Line exists to reflect this mission and to help inspire others to do the same. The band is currently writing and planning to record their first album.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
