Oklahoma City’s favorite hardcore outfit Harp & Lyre have hit the studio to record their first full length record after a pair of successful EPs. Recording with Matt McClellan at Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta, GA, Harp & Lyre have graciously shared their thoughts on the process with Ampmagazine.com. Vocalist Tyler Carder is just as much focused on the fans of Harp & Lyre as he is on the process itself:

“We would like everyone to know how appreciative we are in all of the support and encouragement we’ve received in the last few years. Our fans are some of the best and we are happy for them to be so involved in what we are doing. I’m not sure our fans realize how vital they are in what Harp has accomplished and it would be silly not to recognize the impact they have had on us.”

The new record is slated for early 2012.

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.

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.
