“sizzling pop-punk/pop-rock heat that decimates everything left in its wake” –Absolute Punk 2009

It’s been a busy year for House Of Heroes with the release The End Is Not The End CD followed by two EP releases The Acoustic End and House Of Heroes Meets The Beatles as well as non-stop touring, and it’s not over as the band is looking to end the year with a bang with the release of their first holiday EP on November 10 as well they will be embarking on the biggest traveling Christmas party to date “The Family Force 5 Christmas Pageant Tour” with special guest Remedy Drive kicking off on November 28 for a 3 week trek.  With a holiday themed backdrop adorning the stage you can expect this to be a Christmas party like no other.

“We had a blast making the Silent Night single last year and it was fun to go in and make a full EP of Christmas tunes. To make things even better, we’re going to be doing a Christmas tour with some of our very best friends in Family Force 5! What a great way to close out the year!” Says frontman Tim Skipper

House Of Heroes is –
Tim Skipper -lead vocals, guitar
Colin Rigsby – drums, backing vocals
AJ Babcock – bass guitar, backing vocals
Jared Rigsby- guitar, backing vocals

“It has been a very busy year for us. It’s nice to feel like the band is our job again after a few years of writing, recording, and limited touring. We’ve been on the road a lot supporting a full length and 2 EP’s that we’ve released so far this year. We want to keep that momentum going so we’ve been writing a lot lately and can’t wait to get back in the studio for another full length!” – Says Skipper.

HM covers from over the years

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.

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.

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.
