Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Desolate,” a new jam from the Nashville-based Our Last Trial. Founded over two years ago in March 2016, the song comes from a self-titled EP and is the third track from the release. The track features Michael Felker of Convictions and was filmed by Christian Lavelle.

We spoke with vocalist Joseph Vargas about the song:

“‘Desolate’ is about living a life where everyone around you chooses things over you, whether it is a situation, a person, or a substance. I wanted to write something that could relate to someone who has felt broken from these kinds of things, especially when they’re the second choice to a drug or another person.”

You can follow the band through their Facebook or their Instagram.

Comrades 2020

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.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a 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."
