WHAT: Canadian melodic hardcore group, COUNTERPARTS will be headlining their first ever European tour. EMPIRES FADE and CLIMATES will join COUNTERPARTS on their nineteen city run beginning October 22 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Vocalist Brendan Murphy comments, “We’re very excited to begin our European tour and have wanted to tour in Europe for months now. We are always getting bombarded with messages on our Facebook saying, “Come to Germany!”, “Come to Italy!” etc., and now we can finally say “YO C U SOON” and mean it!  We’re excited to see how our band will do internationally and are excited to visit parts of the world we may never get to see again, assuming our plane makes it there in one piece.”

COUNTERPARTS will be supporting STRAY FROM THE PATH on their upcoming tour starting in Windsor, Ontario on September 10. Check out the complete list of tour dates and watch their recent music video for “Jumping Ship”. The Current Will Carry Us is available for only $5 on AmazonMP3 until the end of August.

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.
