JOHN COFFEY says:

New lead singer, new inspiration, new adventures

As you probably all know last May, our leadsinger Art, decided to leave JOHN COFFEY. Many people applied for the job an it took us quite some time to find the right person. But now, world, we can finally say, we’ve got him! We’re proud to present you, the new guy on vocal duties!

He goes by the name of David Achter de Molen. Born and raised on the meadows of Holland, he became a man on the plains of Kentucky, USA. David spent most of his time screaming in hardcore/screamo bands and he’s got that good old rock n’ roll screamin’. From now on David will be joining us on tour and in the studio.

Check out the first footage of David and us working on new material.

So what are we up to right now?

Alfred and Carsten will take the winter off to explore South East Asia and Indonesia and see what rock n roll is all about on the other side of the world. They’ll stay in touch through our Facebook page, so you can see what they’re up to.

In the meantime the rest of the guys started writing our next record. The first demo recordings will take place by the end of this month. So be on the lookout for some nice video footage on our new website at www.johncoffey.nl

Meanwhile, if you haven’t downloaded our last record VANITY, you can still do that at our Bandcamp site.

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.

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.
