Green River Ordinance to Tour in Support of Latest Release
Under Fire

“Under Fire finds GRO working the vocal harmonies to grand heights. The music is tight and crisp.
Its mix of pop, rock and roots instrumentations rides the melodies and rhythms with organic verve.”
– The Dallas Morning News

Nashville, TN – Following the success of their first independent release after parting with EMI’s Capitol Records, Green River Ordinance (GRO) has forged a path and sound that they’re proud to call their own on Under Fire. The lead single from Under Fire, “Heart of Me,” has seen considerable success in radio currently at #42 on the Hot AC Mediabase chart and climbing. “Dancing Shoes,” a song that has made a return appearance as a bonus track on Under Firepeaked at #6 on The Texas Music chart. GRO is set to embark on a headlining tour, starting September 8 in College Station, TX.

“We left Capitol Records and embarked on this adventure where we funded our own record through Kickstarter,” states frontman Josh Jenkins. “We had this energy behind what we were doing. We felt connected with the people that genuinely care about our band.  We’re really excited to get back on the road and see so many of the people who have supported us on this album, and thank them in person, and continue that relationship.”

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.

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