A Plea for Purging has just released a new song from their upcoming album The Life & Death of A Plea For Purging. You can hear the first single “the life” here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhz4qGZ48ms

A Plea For Purging have never been a band to stay in the proverbial box. The debut of their new album The Life and Death of A Plea For Purging proves, yet again, how versatile and multifaceted these musicians really are. The excellent brutality that Plea has cultivated over the years is present on this follow up to the critically acclaimed Marriage of Heaven and Hell, but also on the new album, existing in perfect harmony with the metallic hardcore they’ve become known for, are some intense acoustic tracks. But don’t be fooled, even on these songs, though they’re musically understated, there’s no mistaking the fiery, impassioned lyrics of A Plea For Purging.

New album The Life and Death of A Plea For Purging due out November 8 on Facedown Records.

Nothing Til Blood “When Lambs Become Lions” Sep 27

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.

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 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.
