Tulsa, OK metal band Thirteen Minutes is proud to premiere the lyric video for “Self Portrait.” The band, currently signed to Rottweiler Records, is inspired by bands like Demon Hunter, For Today, and Living Sacrifice and was the band formed in February 2016 to “blend brutality with harmony, commercial with underground, and the old and the new.” The new song is the first official D45 (digital 45) song release for the band.

We spoke with vocalist Michael Rowley about the song:

“This is the moment we’ve been working so hard for. We’ve been buried in the studio for the last several weeks writing and recording. We are pretty proud of this song — and the others to come. We truly hope those that listen to this song turn the volume up and enjoy the groove.”

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.

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.
