Abilene, TX has produced promising young hardcore punk band Starve, which recently signed to OnTheAttack Records and features former members from Revivalist. Today, HM is premiering the new single from the quartet, “Buzz Kill.” Drummer Tanner Coker spoke with HM about the new single:

“‘Buzz Kill’ is about the one-percent. As a band, we are angry that we live in a culture that glorifies money and power when so many in this world face poverty and oppression. We wanted to express this in a fast, heavy and to-the-point way, as well as leave room for interpretation. ‘Buzz Kill’ is a taste of what’s to come with Starve and we are excited to move forward as a band.”

The song will be available on their upcoming EP, Desperate Measures, which they’re working on now. Download or stream the song below:

The band has previously released a single, “Hornets.”

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

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.
