After a lifetime at Solid State, August Burns Red has joined the Fearless Records team. The band recently started their Euro Summer Tour in Wacken, Germany, and will head to the studio at the end of the year to begin work on a 2015 release. Guitarist J.B. Brubaker spoke on the matter, from the press release:

We are all extremely excited to be a part of the Fearless family. Fearless has done an amazing job building a community within the label as well as a bunch of our friends bands and careers. We can’t wait to see what they can do with ABR. I am about 5 songs deep into writing the new record and I feel like it’s some of the most creative and heavy stuff we have ever written. 2015 is gonna be a great year for August Burns Red! See you on the road!

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.

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."
