Metalcore act Darkness Divided will be releasing their sophomore self-titled album on April 22, and, last week, the band dropped the first single and music video for that album, “Misery.” Today, HM is proud to premiere a behind-the-scenes look at the making of that music video. Vocalist Gerard Mora spoke about the new album via press release:

“After you’ve lived and gone through adversity, you find out what really is important in life. That’s when you reaffirm some of the things you’ve learned in your youth, though they may have been contradictory (to things) you previously faced in life. This album is about the thought process everyone should take to find truth in their lives. If we don’t question the things we believe, then we don’t really understand why we should believe in them.”

The band, signed to Victory Records, also embarked on a tour with label mates Shattered Sun on the Texas Ragers Tour last week, as well.

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.
