The band’s fourth studio album, produced by Daniel Smith (Danielson Familie) and Brian McTear (Mazarin, Matt Pond PA) has been described by Absolutepunk.net as “one of the most ambitious albums of 2009” and “a beautiful work of art which shouldn’t be missed,” by Alter The Press.

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.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
