Over the past few weeks I’ve revealed bits and pieces about my upcoming album during the #OCTMS Twitter Q&A sessions (tune in next Thursday, June 7 at 7pm EST to be a part of the action!).  I know not everyone has been able to attend so before I go any further I wanted to make sure you have all the details.

I am excited to tell you that my new album, The Midsummer Station, will be available everywhere on August 14, and available in the UK on September 17.  Special thanks to those of you who helped unlock the album art this past week.  If you still haven’t seen it, check it out below.  There are still a few news items I’ve got up my sleeves (like maybe some more tour dates this fall? or a new song featuring one of my favorite new artists?) so stay tuned.

Incredible!  You guys have unlocked The Midsummer Station album art!

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.

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.
