HM is happy to offer a free download for all our listeners courtesy of Kings and Daughters. The band recently recorded a cover of Brand New’s “Okay, I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t,” from the classic 2003 album, Deja Entendu.

Vocalist Carlos Salazar wrote in to the magazine to talk about the cover:

Trent and I had been toying around with the idea of covering a Brand New song for some time, just as a fun idea. They are one of our favorite bands on the planet; we’ve had several conversations about where we were in our lives when we first heard the band. We wanted to pick a song that would be fun to play with but still hold emotional depth. Brand New is amazing at that, so we could have picked any one of their songs, but this particular one tugs at our hearts just a bit more.

Stream it and download it, all for free! Put it on your “metal yoga” playlist.

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

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."

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.
