better1
Calgary’s pop-rock quartet KIROS will bring their infectious and inspirational melodic rock across the US when they head out on the “REDvolution! 2012” Tour next month.  Beginning in Rochester, MN on February 10th and wrapping up in Fort Wayne, IN on March 24th, KIROS will accompany influential modern rock acts RED, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH, MANAFEST and NINE LASHES on this exciting run.  “We are very excited and honored to share the stage with such prominent and established artists!  We’re also ecstatic to be releasing our new record while on this tour and have these crowds be the first to hear our new music!” says vocalist Barry MacKichan. A full list of dates can be seen below.

This will be KIROS‘ first US tour in support of the forthcoming Ain’t No Grave Records full length debut, Lay Your Weapons Down out on February 7th, 2012.  After the release of their 3-song EP, Outlaws and Prodigals in September, KIROS fans demanded the group give them more new music. “Unshaken” is the first single that was released from Lay Your Weapons Down and not only has it received a great response from fans and at Christian radio, but it is also featured as one of the free downloads on FUSE TV’s website and can be heard here.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

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.

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.
