Can’t Stop Now

Sup? It feels like there has been a whirlwind of activity surrounding Owl City for the past few months and it’s not about to slow down any time soon.  I’ve relased my new album, The Midsummer Station, been on TV, did a live Q&A, and tomorrow I’m back on the road kicking off The Midsummer Station World Tour.  I feel like I should be exhausted, but I’m actually just really excited.  TV performances are fun, seeing responses to the The Midsummer Station has been inspirational, and taking questions from you guys makes my day, but there is nothing better than getting on stage and performing for everyone.  I really hope I get to see all of you this time around, so if you don’t have tickets yet head to the Events Page because they are still available.


The Midsummer Station World Tour

The Midsummer Station World Tour starts tomorrow at the Cannery in Nashville and runs through November, with stops all over the world.  Tickets are still available but they are going fast so head to the Events Page to find a show near you.

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 covers from over the years

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.

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.
