This February Your Memorial will be heading into Covenant Studios to record their follow up album to 2010’s Atonement. The band will work with engineer Josh Barber to put the album together, and then Josh Schroeder from Random Awesome will step in to do the mixing and mastering. The band expects to finish up the album in late spring for a summer 2012 release with Facedown Records. You’ll be able to follow the band’s process via video updates.

From the band:
It’s time for a new Your Memorial record. We’ve been in the writing process on and off since early 2011 and right now we’re working on wrapping up our third album, and sorting out all of the ideas for pre production. We’re working with our friend Josh Barber, who also was the main engineer on our last record ‘Atonement’, at Covenant Studios in our home away from home Kansas City, MO. We are also really excited to be working with Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome Studio who will be mixing, mastering, and helping build soundscapes for the record. We’re excited about how the songs are shaping up and can’t wait to share them with everyone. We’ll also be posting video updates of the whole recording process so be on the look out for those in the coming weeks!

HM Magazine Turns 35

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.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

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.
