Bremerton, WA-based pop-punk trio MXPX release their music video for “Far Away” today, Tuesday, February 28, on their official website ( www.mxpx.com), starting at 9 a.m. PST/12 p.m. EST. The track is the first single off their highly anticipated album PLANS WITHIN PLANS, available April 3 via MRI/Rock City Recording Company (U.S./Canada).


The single “Far Away,” which will be serviced to radio this week, is described by frontman Mike Herrera, “As crazy as it sounds, this song is about fighting for your hopes and a better way of life. So much has happened to me over the last two years I could write a whole album about it, maybe two. But this was written as a picture of my experiences. Heavy but hopeful.”


For fans that purchased MXPX‘s new documentary, BOTH ENDS BURNING, released in December 2011, the band played the track during the end credits of the DVD. The video was directed by Bryan Buchelt of Snaproll Studios and shot during band practice in Bremerton at Herrera’s Monkey Trench Studios.


Nearly five years since the release of their last album, MXPX is ready to continue their success with the release of PLANS WITHIN PLANS. In addition to U.S./Canada distribution through MRI/Rock City Recording Company, the album will also be available in Japan (Bullion Records), Europe/U.K. (Flix Records) and Australia/New Zealand (El Shaddai Records). New pre-order bundles of the album, LP and newly designed t-shirt are available on the band’s website as well.


MXPX is Mike Herrera (bass/vocals), Tom Wisniewski (guitars) and Yuri Ruley (drums). In the span of 19 years, the band has sold over 2.5 million records worldwide. Their music has been known for its ability to unite formerly distinguished fan bases such as the skate/surf community and the punk underground for almost two decades.

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 covers from over the years

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.
