Youngstown, OH-based Alteras has teamed up with HM to premiere the new music video for “After All.” The song comes from their upcoming debut release, Grief, set to hit stores and digital outlets this Friday, Nov. 13. The album was produced by Nick Ingram in their home state at Capital House Studios. Vocalist Jake Clasen spoke with HM about the video for the track:

“We wanted dancers in our video to have our music portrayed through another art form; what better form than dance? We’re from Ohio but had a location in mind in NYC so we loaded up the tour van, drove overnight from Ohio and met our production team and their dance team in the city and got straight to work. We think the Alteras fans will love this, and we’re proud to be able to give them this video and to work with such a great team.”

Alteras has previously released an EP, Shapeshifter, in 2013. Grief will be the first full-length from the quintet.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

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.
