On the heels of announcing the inaugural Music for Good Tour, HM is happy to announce the HM Music for Good SXSW Showcase, featuring headliners Sleeping Giant and the first live performance of Josh Scogin’s new band, ’68.

The Showcase will take place March 12 at The Ranch in Austin, TX. The Showcase will start at 2 p.m. CT and run into the evening. It is a free show, 21+.

Sleeping Giant will be headlining, making the way for their fourth full-length album this summer, while Josh Scogin and his new band ’68 will be making their first-ever live performance. Inventive metalcorers Everyone Dies in Utah (not from Utah) and the super-mustached metalheads in Phinehas join new Victory Records’ signee Darkness Divided and the Dallas, TX boys in Yesterday As Today start the ball rolling. Silent Planet has been added to the bill! The Los Angeles-based band will be there!

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.
