In a mere three days the legendary NAMM tradeshow will kick off in Anaheim, CA. InsideOut Music is happy to announce the participation of two of the label’s most respected acts; Devin Townsend and King’s X will both be on hand to participate in this year’s festivities. Townsend, who is currently finishing up work on his two new releases ‘Ghost’ and ‘Deconstruction’, will be at NAMM on Thursday, January 13th. His schedules is as follows:

DEVIN TOWNSEND
Thur, Jan 13th
1pm – 1:40pm – Mackie stage
3pm – 3:40pm – Mackie stage
3:40pm – Signing session at Mackie
4:30pm – Signing session at EMG

Devin had the following to say, “NAMM time again, and I’m very much looking forward to meeting up with folks who are able to attend as well as the companies whose generosity and understanding of my musical vision allows me to do my job. The guitar I have worked on with Peavey has quietly been released in it’s first incarnation (the version I used all last year) and we are on the verge of releasing a fine tuned version in conjunction with ‘Deconstruction’. Alvarez acoustics and Mackie have invited me to play an acoustic show at NAMM as well as several signings and DVD performances which will all be seeing the light of day around the release of the two records, ‘Deconstruction’ and ‘Ghost’.

KING’S X recently released their wildly acclaimed ‘Live Love in London’ CD/DVD combo and are now excited to appear at NAMM on Friday, January 14th with the following scheduled events.

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.

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.
