HM is proud to premiere Fight the Fade’s new lyric video for the track “Lanterns (in the Dark).” The Tulsa, OK rock outfit formed in February 2009, the band released an EP shortly thereafter, following it up with 2012’s What We Know and 2014’s Second Horizon. (And they had a particularly popular hit with a cover of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain.”)

We spoke with vocalist Zene Smith about the new track, the first single from their upcoming album.

“Lanterns (in the Dark) is a song written about taking a chance on someone you love, risking the comfort and security of the light to go bring them out of the darkness they’ve wandered into. Sometimes it’s easy to isolate yourself and push away people that love you, but the love you share will always burn brighter than the darkness and pain of being alone.”

The self-titled album is scheduled for release July 1.

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.

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.

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."
