Hundred Suns is a new project from members of Norma Jean, Every Time I Die and Dead and Divine. Cory Brandan, vocalist for Norma Jean, began laying vocals over demos Dead and Divine’s ex-guitarist Chris LeMasters had sent to ETID drummer Ryan Leger in 2013. The trio is now prepped to drop their debut album in April, but has recently released a teaser for their new song, “Bedburner,” and was premiered by AltPress. Speaking to AP, Brandan said of the project:

“We’ve been writing our butts off. I think the further we get into the project, the more we push ourselves and encourage each other to be better.”

This is the second snippet released by the band. The first, “Fractional,” was released in and you can listen to it below.

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.

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.
