A Tragedy in Progress (Across Five Aprils) Stream Entire Album atAbsolutepunk.net

A Tragedy In Progress and Absolutepunk.net have teamed up to make the band’s entire album available for exclusive streaming herehttp://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?p=112204712 . The album, entitled “Mechanical Weather” contains 13 songs that were tracked at Echelon Studios with Joseph McQueen. The record hits stores and online August 28th through Indianola Records.

Formed in 2010, A Tragedy in Progress is the complete and original line up of Across Five Aprils. The band had reunited for a series of reunion shows that year when they decided to write some new songs under the name of the band’s first record (A Tragedy in Progress). Eventually this led to long time A5A collaborators Indianola Records releasing the 2011 EP “Going Down With The Ship”.

Guitarist Jason Fields recently commented during an AtlSounds interview on what listeners can expect from this full length effort: “I feel like it’s a solid record start to finish. A lot of records have high points and a lot of filler in between. I feel like our record is strong throughout. Across Five Aprils fans will hear things that are indicative of this lineup and our chemistry, but they will hear better crafted songs with a more mature sound. That being said, I believe and hope a new listener would enjoy it just as much”

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

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.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
