Gotee Records band House Of Heroes is set to release their latest effort, SUBURBA on August 3, produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely(The Almost, Paramore).  In anticipation of SUBURBA, Gotee Records and House of Heroes have come up with a “tweet and download” campaign for fans that kicks off on June 29.  Go to <>  where you will be able to post a tweet about HOH in exchange for a free download of the track “Independence Day For A Petty Thief”, just in time for the July 4th holiday.

“AJ and I went to the 4th of July fireworks in the ritzy part of town 2 years agostates lead singer Tim Skipper.We had parked in a neighborhood nearby and had to walk a bit.  All of the houses were deserted and the garage doors were open and it was just very bizarre.  AJ looked at us and said, “This would be heaven for some punk kids looking to rob these people.”  A week and a few sweet riffs later, we had a song about that very thing.  We’re always trying to think of interesting subject matter to write about, and I think this song really stands out.  Plus, it’s about as balls out rock n’ roll as anything we’ve ever done!  We’ve created a nice little collection of fans through <>  and we’re just dying to get some music from ‘Suburba’ out to them, so giving away a song called ‘Independence Day For a Petty Thief ‘a week before July 4th, just fits so well”

SUBURBA is an album like nothing else you will hear today.  And for that fact alone, it is a victory of epic proportions.  Endlessly poppy, galactically ambitious, and dripping with honest, candid emotion, this is what a rock record is supposed to sound like.  This is what a rock record is supposed to feel like.

Expect the band to tour nonstop through out 2010.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Forward Under a Dying Sun

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.
