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.

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.
