Tulsa, OK metalheads Thirteen Minutes are proud to premiere the music video for their single, “This Life,” today on HM. The band, currently signed to Rottweiler Records, released a free download of the track for free over at Noisetrade. The band signed to Rottweiler in late 2016 after forming earlier in the year, and 2017 will see the release of their debut album, recorded at Simpson Studios in Broken Arrow, OK.

HM spoke with drummer Jamie Kucinski about the song:

The song and video for “This Life” has been a great labor of love for us. We’ve been through several transitions over the course of the last year and a half. This song is the culmination of all of those transitions. We believe it is a great look into what this band has become and a sneak peek into what is to come.

We cannot give away too much regarding the upcoming release, but we can promise the songs will be filled with groove, passion and purpose. We hope to inspire our listeners to roll down their car windows and crank up Thirteen Minutes.

Thirteen Minutes is scheduled to play Serpent Stomp Festival on April 22 with Project 86, Grave Robber, Rival Choir and more in Owasso, OK.


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.

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."
