Take the frantic-ness of The Chariot, mix with the poetically stoic words of bands such as La Dispute and As Cities Burn, throw in a dash of DIY rawness and you will have the Athens, GA outfit Come What May. The band has announced June 12th as the release date for their new record Strange Dialect.
Having self released two EP’s already, (2009’s Solace EP and2010”s Stimulus Vs. Sense EP) Come What May has paved the road for this year’s assault. Strange Dialect, their first full-length record, once again proves the DIY work ethic is alive and well while still producing top-notch tracks such as these. The record will be available for purchase June 12th.
For fans of: As Cities Burn, The Fall of Troy, Thrice, Emery, The Chariot

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.

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

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.
