Eau Claire, WI-based Conveyer is set to release their debut album, No Future, on June 23, and today they’re partnering with HM to premiere the second single from that record, “Disgrace.” The album, released by Chicago-based Victory Records, was written with the intent of recreating the experience of seeing the band in person. “Our goal with No Future was to capture the energy and passion of a Conveyer live show on record,” guitarist Ty Brooks said.

The band, however, was fairly direct with their comments about “Disgrace.” Brooks was very clear in his message:

“This song is about us wanting there to be a separation between the Church and political parties in America.”

No Future will mark the first time Conveyer has worked on an album with a producer, previously embracing the DIY ethos, including on their 2015 debut release, When Given Time to Grow. They entered Silver Bullet Studio in Connecticut with producer Greg Thomas (Shai Hulud, Misery Signals, With Honor) in January 2017.

Brooks added, “This was the first record we have ever worked on with a producer, and we couldn’t be happier with how it came out. A lot of work went into shaping and re-arranging each song to make them the best that they could be. We are so grateful to him, Chris Teti and everyone else at the studio. We are very proud of No Future and we are looking forward to working on the next record with our family at Silver Bullet.”

An Artist's Obsession

Telle Smith, vocalist for The Word Alive, is coming off the release of the band's sixth studio album, MONOMANIA. That was in February. This is, well, now. Originally planned to tour for the new album and play for millions, he’s in his house in California... trading stocks. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt catches up with the quarantined Smith.
