1981 Straight Edge Clothing have announced a two day festival to celebrate hardcore music and a hardcore lifestyle this May.  The festival titled “Bringing It Back For The Kids” will feature performances from some of the most savagely followed bands in hardcore today including Terror, Stick To Your Guns and Casey Jones.  1981’s Cliff Wiener said “We wanted to throw a fest with a positive atmosphere, great music and a variety of activities.”  Some of those activities announced today include a dodgeball tournament, spin the bottle, twister and more in the works including food themes as well.

1981 Clothing was founded in 2005 by Wiener and Alex Kenny.  It started out as a straight edge clothing brand but has now expanded to include vegan and vegetarian clothing as well. 1981 was formed with the intention of making the shirts as fun and unique as it is to be part of the hardcore scene world wide. Wiener says “It was very important to us to make  the focus of 1981 to be unity, hardcore and straight edge and get people off the violence and gang mentality that is sometimes associated with straight edge.”  In addition to the clothing line Wiener and Kenny are strong supporters of music with multiple companies to their name which has included releasing records and launching tours at times. As 567 Records they have released albums by Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate) and Further Seems Forever, as Royal Family Clothing they have released exclusive limited edition t-shirts for bands like Coheed & Cambria and Whitechapel.  Recently they have started a management company called Big Hit Management to manage up and coming bands.

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.

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.

Tigerwine 2020

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."
