Today, HM is proud to premiere the new lyric video for Final Surrender’s latest single, “Nothing But Void.” The single comes from the band’s upcoming EP of the same name. The album is scheduled to come out on Jan. 13. (Preorders can be made at the band’s Bandcamp page.) Drummer Jared Sandhy wrote into HM to talk a little about the album:

“We are super excited for the release. The album is comprised of seven melodic, progressive metalcore songs. Working with Rottweiler Records on the release has always been an awesome feeling and a blessing. We have worked really hard on this record and would love for every serious metalhead to give it a listen.”

Formed in 2010 in Bangalore, India, the band cites a wide-array of influences for their music, from August Burns Red to Meshuggah. According to the band, the new album is a “transparent look at the realities of faith and encourages listeners to renew their lives through the warmth and light of faith, to soldier on through the hardest of times, and to never surrender.”

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

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.
