“This is the first music video we’ve been able to shoot at home in Wichita. We’ve always been a fan of Kevin’s work but never had the chance to collaborate with him on a project. I think the funnest part of the whole shoot was blowing up all those fireworks in a barrel in the middle of January trying not to get injured or caught!” –

says singers Jeremy Spring

This week at AmazonMP3 fans can get a sneak listen to every song on the release including ‘Liar’ and the AmazomMP3 bonus track ‘Don’t Forget Where You Came From” both featuring guest vocals from House Of Heroes Tim Skipper.  Hear the clips at: http://amzn.to/astradd

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.

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.
