“It’s catchy enough to warrant some serious radio play, but intricate enough to please the ears of listeners who enjoy more complex music.” – AbsolutePunk.net

Singer Jeremy Spring once again will embark on a very intimate tour, where he will be playing living rooms across America, literally on a solo acoustic run deemed The Living Room Tour III.

“This is the third year I’ve done an unplugged tour in fan’s living rooms, except this year I added another leg to include the west coast. No sound system, no ticket sales, no awkward local opening bands; it’s just me and an acoustic guitar sharing songs and stories from all of AK’s releases. Our fan base has been incredibly generous about opening up their homes, welcoming strangers in for the show, but there’s no doubt we are all friends by the end of the night. It’s not like a show at all, and there is a real sense of community and lots of sing a longs! The host’s think I’m joking, but I mostly show up for the snacks and coffee each night anyway. Having added so many extra cities this year I hope a lot of AK’s friends and fans can make it out for this special tour”

Comrades 2020

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.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

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.

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."
