blessthefall kicks off U.S. tour
with As I Lay Dying

blessthefall is excited to kick off their first set of dates with As I Lay Dying in Tuscon, AZ today!

The tour is in support of current album Witness, and precedes a summer on the Cool Tour with As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between The Buried And Me, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats and War Of Ages. The band then heads to Europe with August Burns Red in September.

BLESSTHEFALL – Beau Bokan (lead vocals), Eric Lambert (guitar/vocals), Mike Frisby (guitar), Jared Warth (bass), Matt Traynor (drums) – stormed to the forefront of the new evolution of the post-hardcore/metalcore genre with the release of critically-acclaimed second album Witness in October 2009. Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Incubus, Escape The Fate, Story Of The Year), the album debuted in the Billboard Top 200 at #56 and the Independent Chart at #6. The band has steadily gained a legion of fans around the world, having toured with the likes of Escape The Fate, From First To Last, Protest The Hero, All That Remains, Silverstein and Finch.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
