ForeverAtLast released their debut album, Ghosts Again, on Oct. 16, and the first single from that album, “Shoreline,” was released a shade earlier. Today, HM is proud to premiere the band playthrough for that same single. We asked drummer Jared Paris about the song and what it is about the track that he loves playing the most:

“Shoreline is a fun drum song to play because, at 294 bpm with different grooves, you open up the playbook of (drum) fills. Very fun song and a throwback to when I was playing Offspring and Pennywise songs as a teenager.”

The Indianapolis-based band signed with Victory Records almost a year ago at the end of 2014 and is about to wrap up the Digging Graves Tour with Hail Your Highness.

The Blackened Blues

With Anberlin putting a hold on its career, two of its members – Christian McAlhaney and Deon Rexroat – weren't ready to put on hold on music as their careers. Now, their former side project – a "blackened blues" rock and roll outfit – has become their main gig.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
