Tickets for the #OCTMS Promo Tour went on sale today.  The goal this tour is to play small/intimate rooms and try out some of the new songs live for the first time to see how they handle.  A full list of shows and ticket information is at the bottom of this email, or you can find them at OwlCityMusic.com.  Get tickets soon because they are going fast.  I hope I will be able to share this with you!


As an artist, you never know what to expect come release day, but as usual, you guys turned this week into one of the best.  Your continued encouragement and support means the world to me.  A special thank you to those who’ve been joining me on Twitter on Thursday evenings at 7pm EST.  If you haven’t already downloaded the music, you can get the Shooting Star EP on iTunes now.

There’s a lot more big news to come so stay tuned.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

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.

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.
