As I Lay Dying preceded the release of their 6th full-length studio album, “AWAKENED,” with a highly successful run on 2012’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival where the band rotated between the side and main stages. Just before “AWAKENED” dropped via Metal Blade Records on September 25th, the band released their first production video for the album for the track “A Greater Foundation.” Fans instantly took to the internet to express their love of the new song – AND to discuss the relevance of the lyrics. Check out the video and comments HERE.

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.

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.

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.
