Today, The Order of Elijah is happy to announce a new tour, The Molecular Destruction Tour, through Texas this summer in support of their upcoming album, Pathos, Logos, Ethos. The words are the three Latin words for love. We spoke with vocalist Shannon Low about the tour and the album.

“As I type this quote, we’re in the studio recording our third national album, Pathos, Logos, Ethos. This tour is going to begin our summer campaign for the new album, and I’m quite positive it’s the best material we’ve ever composed. Texas: we’re coming for you.”

Dates:

  • 6/8 — Austin, TX — Texas Mist
  • 6/9 — San Marcos, TX — Kiva Lounge
  • 6/10 — Fort Worth, TX — Tomcats West
  • 6/11 — Shreveport, LA — Big D’s BBQ

TOOE recently caused a stir in the metalcore world, as Low opted to publicly state his disbelief in Christianity.

I spoke with him about his whole thought process, along with HM writer Jameson Ketchum, on the Godspeed Podcast last year.

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 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.
