Today, HM is excited to bring you “Gun Blast,” the second single from Minor Crisis’s upcoming Temple. (The band was featured last year in HM, and more recently, the band released two exclusive HM-named remix tracks, available for jamming.) The band features Jeff Ashmore, Chris Fincher, Joey Husley (founding drummer of The Chariot) and Roy Goudy (a founding guitarist in Zao).

“There is a new noise in the air,” HM’s review of the album reads. “It’s not fake-’80s throwback noise, but rather legitimate production polishing up what an old Beastie Boys album would sound like in the era of Miley Cyrus. It’s got a vague hint of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems,” and the sound has the stones of Jack White if he had a DJ.”

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.

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.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
