As expected, Emery will be going out on tour in support of the 10-year anniversary of their fabulous record, The Weak’s End. As an added bonus, former frontman Devin Shelton will return to the group for the dates (listed below). They’ll be playing the record front to back, and as the band says, “This tour will be set almost exclusively in very small rooms just as Emery shows used to be back in 2003.”

The even is being billed as an “interactive experience,” hosted by founding Emery members Matt Carter and Toby Morrell. I expect tickets to go quickly, so I’d try to get yours now.

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.

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.
