Newcomers Glassworld are proud to debut their first single to the world, “Breaking Free,” exclusively on HM. It’s accompanied with the lyric video, available here. The band is a mashup of its own, of sorts, as they’re all very familiar with the scene: vocalist Bethany Durbin (The Rose Hill), guitarist Stephanie Roat (Corpus Christi), drummer Steve Blair (Witness) and guitarist Britten Whitlock (All My Friends Are Dead). Think Underoath, Emery and Beartooth. Durbin had this to say about the new song:

Our new single, “Breaking Free,” is about not meeting the standards of others and being perfectly comfortable in your own skin. It’s about taking the pain and suffering from failing to fit in and letting it go. It’s an anthem song, really, for anyone who needs to break free from whatever — or whomever — is holding you back from standing up for what means most to you.

An EP is planned for this fall.

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.

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."
