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.

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.

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."
