O’Brother Announce Release of
Basement Window

September 18th digitally
& Limited Edition LP October 30th


On tour with Circa Survive beginning September 13th
& Appearing at Music Midtown Festival
September 22nd in Atlanta


Triple Crown Records is pleased to announce the release of Basement Window the new EP from O’Brother. The EP is a bit of a sonic departure for the band, stripping down and re-arranging a few of their favorites from their debut full length Garden Window. Vocalist Tanner Merritt explains “It’s a lot of fun to strip a song down to its very core and see how it holds its own based upon sheer songwriting. With so much volume and layering it’s very easy to lose those things. It’s fun and challenging to take a song and mold it in to something completely different. Give it a new tone and demeanor. That’s what our intention was with this EP, to (hopefully) allow ourselves and others to see these songs in a different light.”

Basement Window will be released digitally September 18th and include a bonus track not on the vinyl release. Vinyl will be released October 30th. The limited vinyl release is a special pressing, 1 side audio and 1 side etched artwork.

Basement Window track list:

Lo
Machines Pt. 1
Lay Down
Malum
Poison!

Tigerwine 2020

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."

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.

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.
