We have had a blast playing live together as a band again recently. Our Latin America tour was amazing and we deeply appreciate all the love and encouragement that we get from all of our U.S. and International friends. It’s been awesome to reconnect with so many old friends via Facebook and other social media outlets and we feel blessed that people still have an interest in an old-school Rock & Roll band like Guardian.

But…amidst all this new fun…we realized that there is still just one thing missing…A NEW RECORD!

Back in the day, we had record deals and budgets and fun stuff like that…but a lot has changed in the music business…and the only way for Guardian to make a new record is…to do it ourselves!

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.

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.
