Rock and roll band Granite Rose have teamed up with HM Magazine to debut their new documentary, The Sound of a City. The short film follows the band through the process of recording their new album, Worlds Apart, set to drop on July 7. Shot and edited by HM photographer Kyle Lehman, we spoke with vocalist Nick Anderson about the new album and film.

“They told us we were crazy for trying to do six songs in 12 hours, but we wanted it to be real. We wanted mistakes, we wanted imperfections, we wanted real rock and roll. That’s what makes this record different.  You don’t just hear this music, you feel it.”

The band plans to release the first single from that album, the title track “Worlds Apart,” on June 14.

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

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.

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
