Blindside | Our Love Saves Us

Regarding the video, the band stated, “We had a lot of fans asking on Facebook for a video, so we made one! The internet has changed the dialog you have with your fans which is great. We have a good friend Marcus von Boisman who is a great film maker and together we worked up this idea of facing fear and finding love.”

It has been four years since Blindside toured the U.S., and this fall the wait is finally over. The popular rock band will visit 18 cities this fall on their “Shivering Hearts Tour” in support of their latest release With Shivering Hearts We Wait, with the help from fellow rockers Write This Down from Tooth & Nail Records and Indie Swedish band Intohimo.

“The tour starts 2 years to the day after we started recording the record out in LA,” says Blindside’s Christian Linskog. “Even for us this tour has been a long time coming. I think the thing we are most looking forward to is seeing the fans again. For years we have been talking through Facebook it is going to be great to face to face after this long break.”

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. 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.

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.
