HM is honored to present the lyric video for newcomers Kingdom Collapse. Vocalist Josh Wolford reached out directly to help explain the video:

I remember when I found out that my father passed away. I didn’t know how to feel, or what to feel, and none of my friends or family had ever had to go through something like that before. For the longest time, I was suspended in such disbelief, that it took me an incredibly long time to accept it, and try to get back into the normal routine. And after awhile, I started noticing the positive things that came from it. It brought my family closer, and introduced me to my two brothers. And because all of us kids knew what it felt like to lose a father, it helped knowing we weren’t alone. And that’s why I decided to write ‘Dear Dad’. Death is an incredibly hard subject to deal with, but knowing there’s someone who’s gone through the same situation is sometimes comforting. And this was my way wanting to reach out to those who have family or friends that feel the way they do. I want anyone who hears this song, or comes out to a show and watches us perform this, to know that they aren’t alone.

You can grab the band’s new EP, Common Ground, on iTunes or pick up some merch at kingdomcollapse.bandcamp.com.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
