Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video from metalcore outfit Talk to the Stranger. “Homerun” is a new single from the Apple Valley, CA group, recorded with Andrew Glover at The Sound Temple.

We spoke with drummer Greg Hawkins about the track:

“Homerun is the song that embodies all of the struggles we, as a band, have gone through in the past year. It was a way for us to channel all of our resentment towards the things we have personally gone through, while also relaying our hopes for the future. The firepower we had from these experiences was used to make it the hard-hitting song that it is.  We believe this song represents a new beginning for the band, and it really shows us hitting our stride.”

If you dig the sound, you can grab it on iTunes. The band can be reached at Facebook or Instagram, or hit up their merch to support their tour.

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

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.
