KillerTours Presents the “Yellow Brick Road Tour” with Deception Of A Ghost, Lions! Tigers! Bears! (Tragic Hero), These Hearts (Victory), and Blessed By A Burden (Standby). The US tour will kick off October 22 and run through mid November.

Ahhh the road, where we belong, once again here we go! Really excited to be hitting the US with Lions! Tigers! Bears!, These Hearts and Blessed By A Burden. This tour is already looking amazing with some killer support from the bands, labels, and sponsors.  Also doesn’t hurt to have Bullet Tooth, Victory, Tragic Hero, and Standby Records steering the ship with promo power. Everyone seems really involved and excited about the tour, feels great to be taken such great care of.  Seems like every time we go out with new bands we gain new family members which is amazing and how it should be, so we cannot wait to meet all the guys and throw down some brews and great times! And again most importantly we are most excited about seeing and hanging out with ALL our amazing fans! You guys are the reason we do what we do, so thank you guys so much for all the undying support of us and all bands on the scene, keep it up, you make it happen!” – Buddy Dameron (Deception Of A Ghost / Guitar)

Deception Of A Ghost just launched their new music video for the song “These Voices” off their debut full length album “Speak Up, You’re Not Alone”.  The song has been a MAJOR hit at their live shows and currently available on The Orphan Killer Soundtrack.  Behind the camera is director Scott Hansen, responsible for recent videos for A Day To Remember, Alesana, Memphis May Fire, I See Stars, and many more.  The video was filmed in Washington, DC and showcases the band in their most comfortable habitat… PERFORMING.  Fans can watch the video on YouTube or Metal Injection.

The band’s guitarist and singer Buddy Dameron commented on the video, “Words can’t really put into perspective the detail and intensity that went into shooting the video for “These Voices”.  Working along with Scott Hansen was an unreal experience, from shots taken hanging upside down in an old elevator shaft to rocking the song on the set ad nauseum, it was intense and you guys are gonna love how this turns out!”

Deception Of A Ghost just also released their new single “Firework” on April 12, a metal version of Katy Perry’s popular song of the same name. The boys from Charlotte have put their own spin on it and you GOTTA hear it. Fans can stream the entire song at YouTube and buy the track at iTunes, Amazon, and everywhere else they buy and play music.

The band is in this month’s issue of Alt Revolt, and fans can also play the lead track “In Case You Forgot” off their new album on RockBand.

Deception Of A Ghost has recently been on the road with The Bunny The Bear (Victory), This Or The Apocalypse (Good Fight), Affiance (Bullet Tooth), Texas In July (Equal Vision), In Fear And Faith (Rise), Iwrestledabearonce (Century Media) and many more.

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.

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.

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.
