HM is proud to premiere the new single, “Bombs Away,” from alt-rock group 20 Eyes. This is the first single of 2015 from the San Pedro, CA band, comprised of frontman Wolf Bradley, Chance Famighetti and Andrew Macatrao. The band’s first single, “Friends Like You,” was released last year.

Vocalist Wolf Bradley, whose creativity is said to be birthed from growing up with a ballerina, spoke with HM about the meaning behind the track:

“‘Bombs Away’ is a battle cry for individuality. It’s for those who feel out of place or uncomfortable in their own skin. Forget what the world wants you to be and be what makes you, you. The world is better off with people in it who aren’t afraid to be themselves.’

If you dig the sound, you can check out 20 Eyes on Facebook. The band is currently on tour.

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.
