Just a week away from the release of their sucker-punch of a third album, Bury Me Alive, on October 6, Cleveland, Ohio art-metalers INHALE EXHALE are shifting into high gear with the filming of a new video for lead single “Did You Ever Have A Touch To Lose?”.

Being shot near Greensboro, NC, today (September 28), the video will echo the push-and-pull tension of “Did You Ever Have A Touch To Lose?” – the ferocious riffage juxtaposed with singer Ryland Raus’ pleading melodies, the snarling screams colliding with the frantic guitar leads – with its striking usage of lighting in the darkest contexts. “We wanted it to be a feeling of being surrounded,” says guitarist and primary songwriter John LaRussa. “There is going to be a lot of live performance shots, and a lot of lights and blinders going on.”

Coinciding with the video shoot is the stream of a third track (and album opener) from Bury Me Alive, “Rooms,” on INHALE EXHALE‘s MySpace page (www.myspace.com/inhaleexhale) on Tuesday, September 29. With each released track, the band demonstrates in no uncertain terms that Bury Me Alive marks a sea change for an irrepressible young force in metal music.

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.

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.
