We are proud to introduce the newest addition to the Victory Records family, AMBER PACIFIC from Federal Way, WA. Their emotional blend of powerful, “pop-punk rock” is a fitting addition to our diverse roster. As an established band, with two full length albums and two EPs already under their belt, they have sold 175,000 records to date. The band is eagerly preparing to head into the studio to record their Victory Records’ debut which will be released in early 2010. Guitarist Will Nutter had this to say about the recent signing, “We’re excited and really looking forward to accomplishing great things with Victory!”

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.

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.

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.
