Ana Sapphira’s new album, Edge Walker, is scheduled for release this June, but until then, “Heavy Hands” should keep your head banging until then. The new music video, filmed by Justin Mills and edited with help from Jordan Meher, ushers in the new album, recorded at Warrior Studio in Chapel Hill, N.C. Speaking of the new album, vocalist Jonathan Lamper had this to say:

Edge Walker is about no longer settling for what I’ve always known. It’s about taking the risk on a purpose in life that’s much bigger than me and what’s always been comfortable.

Should be some heavy songs on the release. We’ll have more information as June approaches. Until then, keep your heads ringing.

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.

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.
