facedownfest

We are excited to announce that Facedown Fest 2012 will take place on April 6 & 7 this year. We’re doing things a little differently this year, splitting the nights at two different venues, and holding a Strike First night and a Facedown night.

We’re also doing something special for ticket purchasers by creating some bundles to give you more bang for your buck. Tickets are available right now at www.facedownfest.com and feature bundles with a limited edition Facedown shirt and/or a cd of your choice. You get all that plus little-to-no ticketing fees, and free shipping for the cd and shirt bundles.

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 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."
