Raviner 2020

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new single from Raviner, “Drown.” The single comes from the band’s upcoming EP, scheduled for the release at the end of February.

Raviner’s single explores turbulent life changes with a cathartic release combining aggressive guitars mixed with a cinematic synthscape. The band went through an unofficial hiatus, experimenting with different lineups, but have always featured founding member and vocalist Kamber at the center.

To support the EP release, Raviner will be heading out on tour this March with Zahna. Raviner previously released an EP, Beast, in 2017.

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.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

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."
