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.”

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.

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.
