Come and Rest will be performing across the South later this month, performing on what they’ve dubbed the “Tour Noir.” You can check out the Atlanta, GA metalcore band’s latest single, “Upside Down,” here on HM.

Friends Josh Harmon and Daniel Goehring founded the band in 2010, joined later by vocalist Noel Torres and drummer Mitchell Garrett. “Lifespeak,” their first single, was released later that year and with the help of their newly recruited bassist, Zachary Capes, they started working on the Royal Blood EP. According to their Facebook page, the departure of Josh Harmon due to other aspirations allowed Daniel Goehring to take over rhythm and lead guitar. In February 2013, the now four-piece band released the EP. Soon after, the band wanted to showcase a new style, which is featured in their latest single, “Upside Down.”

You can check them out live when they come to your city during “Tour Noir.”

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.

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

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
