Emuness, a new band out of Florida and recently signed to Luxor Records, is proud to premiere the first video in a series of three videos, “Chapter VIII,” here on HM. With a focus on raw emotion and a goal to help change lives for the better, the positive-focused band will release two more videos as follow-ups to “Chapter VIII” to complete the trilogy.

We spoke with Emuness drummer Robert Roman about that track.

“As humans, we all have problems whether it’s a relationship, drug issues, family issues, mental illnesses, and more that we like to bottle up without discussing and fixing the problem. ‘Chapter VIII’ reflects that even though we face these issues alone internally there’s always someone to talk to or some platform that can help guide you through whatever it is you’re facing and come out on top instead of being beaten down by your own thoughts.”

“Chapter VIII” was shot by Efileno.

The song comes from the album Equilibrium scheduled to hit stores and streams on May 26, 2018.

Not Dead... Yet

After canning the entire album in 2015, Righteous Vendetta is ready to release 'Not Dead Yet' and prove they're still thriving. We recently got to sit down with Ryan Hayes, vocalist of Righteous Vendetta, to discuss the band's upcoming album, life in the Mountain West, and how the pandemic has him venturing into country music songwriting.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
