Today, HM is proud to premiere Fight the Fade’s new lyric video for “Everything is Fine?”. The song comes from the band’s eponymous new album, which also drops today. The Tulsa, OK-based quintet is entering into their tenth year, having previously released two full-length albums and two EPs.

We spoke with vocalist Zene Smith about the new track:

“To me, it’s about our inability to control what happens to us. In the end, all we really have control over is how we respond when things happen. The world doesn’t stop for us, no matter what we’re going through. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of rolling with the punches and starting over.”

The band is scheduled to play Creation Fest on June 28.

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.
