Today, HM is proud to premiere the full album stream of The Restitution’s sophomore album, Into the Dark. The band — a moniker for the solo project of musician Michael Wright — sought out to explore the brokenness of human connection through the music and lyrics of the work; the album spent over four years in the making.

Wright spoke about the album:

“Humans need each other by nature, but we live in a society where we are unwittingly making it easier to live without each other, and thereby harder to live with each other. This is something that has affected me deeply, and is really what this record is about.”

The album was also produced, engineered and mixed by Wright, recorded at It’s a Trap! Recording.

Fans of the work can purchase the piece over at the band’s Bandcamp page.

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.
