Meadows 2019

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “The Absence” from Meadows. The song comes from the band’s upcoming EP, In Those Days and Also After, Pt. II, which tells the story of siblings coping with the absence of their father.

We spoke with vocalist Christian Nielsen about the track:

“‘The Absence,’ along with it’s EP In Those Days and Also After, Pt. II, is a continuation of the story that now follows the younger of two brothers trying to carry on and help his mother after their father walks out on them and passed away in a car wreck. The Absence comes in on the heels of finding out that the older brother had abandoned them in their time of need.”

Christian Nielsen, Meadows vocalist

The EP will hit stores and streams on July 26.

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.

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.
