Always a good Friday when there is new music, and today is no different: Outlands is a San Diego-based metalcore band, and HM is proud to premiere their new lyric video for “King of Dust.” The song comes from their upcoming album, Grave Mind, set to drop on June 23. We spoke with vocalist James DeBerg about the track:

“This song is about how broken people can’t see the potential to build happiness in so many parts of life.”

The band is currently on the Handmade Tour with The Ongoing Concept and Dayseeker. If you dig the track, you can preorder the LP over at Tragic Hero Records.

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.
