Tooth & Nail Records and Ivoryline proudly debut the new single “Instincts” on the band’s MySpace Page. “Instincts” is also available for download online at both iTunes and Amazon MP3. It is the first single released off of the band’s upcoming album VESSELS, which is available in stores and online July 27th.

The song addresses larger issues such as the need for strength, love and faith. Vocalist Jeremy Gray says, “It’s also a song about free will and how ultimately we have the choice to choose how we want to live, what kind of people we want to be.”

VESSELS is currently available for pre-order at the Tooth & Nail Webstore available bundled on its own, or with either an Ivoryline Tank Top, mug or combination of the two.

The album is their sophomore full-length, following 2008’s THERE CAME A LION.

Ivoryline is Jeremy Gray (vocals), Dusty Kittle (guitar), Robert Woodward (bass) and Wesley Hart (drums).

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.

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."

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.

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