Post-hardcore outfit Arms for Elephants has a debut album dropping today, and HM is proud to premiere the exclusive stream. My Judas Scene is the band’s first full-length release; the Mankato, MN band put out a debut EP, Identities, in 2014.

HM spoke with guitarist and vocalist Fletch Archerd about the release:

“Our debut full-length album, My Judas Scene, is an intensely personal album, and we’re extremely excited to finally be able to share it with the world. We strive to make music that is therapeutic, and that means writing lyrics that are honest and vulnerable. In a scene that’s both amazing and often overly generic, this is just sincere music with a cause.”

If you dig the sound, you can find Arms for Elephants on their Bandcamp page or on Facebook.

An Artist's Obsession

Telle Smith, vocalist for The Word Alive, is coming off the release of the band's sixth studio album, MONOMANIA. That was in February. This is, well, now. Originally planned to tour for the new album and play for millions, he’s in his house in California... trading stocks. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt catches up with the quarantined Smith.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
