Blessthefall will be co-headlining with Chiodos this summer on the Crowd Surf America Tour. Blessthefall’s latest album, Hollow Bodies, was a hit during their Hollow Bodies Tour earlier this year and this upcoming tour will continue to spearhead the critically-acclaimed album.

Beau Bokan, frontman of Blessthefall, said through the official release:

So excited to be touring with our good friends in Chiodos! They are one of the bands that helped shape this scene and we can’t wait to give the fans a show they’ll never forget!

The band also teamed up with Billboard to premiere their “Off the Record” video; the first of a two-part series that goes deep into Blessthefall’s history, and you can watch it here on HM.

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.
