Rusty Shipp

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Detonator” from Rusty Shipp. The four-piece band from Nashville sports a sound that mixes The Beach Boys with Nirvana with Muse with surfers, and the latest single embraces their unconventional rock combination. The song comes from the band’s album, Liquid Exorcist.

Also interesting is the concept behind that album, pulling from the World War II-era then-newly minted underwater fighting. We spoke with vocalist Russ Shipp about that concept.

“‘Detonator’ is our most surf-rock song to date, pulling ingredients right out of the ’60s craze. … Lyrically, this is the definitive snapshot of our upcoming concept record Liquid Exorcist and really dives in (pun intended) to this forgotten story of sea mine terrorism in the ’40s from a first-person narrative.”

You can keep up with the band over at Facebook and Twitter.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
