Christian metal band Ecclesiast is premiering their new lyric video for “High Horse” today on HM. The single comes from their debut self-titled EP scheduled for release June 24 on Sancrosanct Records. Vocalist Joseph Smith wrote in to HM to talk about the track:

“In my eyes, I see the path that’s laid before in my heart and I know what is wrong and right. High Horse. This quote means something personal that I went through and questioning my own decisions through how other people felt. This whole song basically is about being the person that God wants you to be and not what man wants you to be.”

The four-piece band comes from St. Charles County, Missouri, forming in late 2013.

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.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
