Tracings is a post-hardcore band from Fargo, ND, and HM is happy to premiere “Maverick,” the first single and lyric video from the band’s five-song EP, “Bloodlines and Anchors,” set to come out in January 2015. The album was recorded with producer Josh Barber (Norma Jean, War of Ages, Colossus) of Covenant Studios in Kansas City, MO. Vocalist Kyle Richards had this to say:

HM Magazine is home to a lot of my favorite artists. Tracings’ is blessed to be a part of a movement and family that encourages, promotes, and sees the merit in our music. HM Magazine is truly helping the music industry forecast and recognize great musical artistry in young, independent bands while staying current on present heavy hitters. Hearing HM is as much ear candy to me as the bands’ music they promote.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

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.
