It is with great pleasure HM is announcing the inaugural Music for Good Tour, featuring Silent Planet and Darkness Divided. (Dates below.)

HM was born and built on sweat and drive, as founding owner Doug Van Pelt handed out the first issue on Xerox copies, folded in half by hand on the University of Texas campus in Austin. Now, 30 years later, the Music for Good Tour aims to embody those same grassroots ideals, taking a from-the-bottom-to-the-top approach with bands and sponsors, simultaneously bringing a faith-based love for any and every one that comes to a show.

HM's Music for Good Tour 2014


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."

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.
