Today, HM is proud to premiere the new single, “Mind Reader,” from Midnight Skies. The Seattle, WA-based trio is a pop-punk newcomer in the vein of Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, or Real Friends. This is their debut single.

We spoke with vocalist Sullivan Burkart about the new track:

“’Mind Reader’ is about the insider/outsider point of view of a broken relationship. Everyone has been in a failed relationship or has watched someone close to them go through it. This song speaks to all of us on the importance of communication and not giving up on love.”

Look for a full album from the band in 2019.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

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.
