Beverly, Massachusetts band Valleyheart has been in the studio working on Nowadays for the past few months, and they have now emerged to release the first single from the EP, “Kids from Calvary,” here on HM. The band formed in 2016 and features former members of Exiting the Fall. The EP is scheduled to drop on March 19, and the single is about the band’s hometown and where they all met as teenagers.

We spoke vocalist and guitarist Kevin William Klein about the upcoming EP:

“In the Nowadays EP, I struggle with the ideas of my youth, growing up and finding peace in that sometimes tough transition. When I was younger, there was a sense that everything was seemingly simpler: that friends were close, our dreams and motives pure and life just happened naturally on its own in this beautiful, organic way. Whether it was friends, God or even my own inner peace, everything seemed closer and more tangible. The EP explores redefining what purpose, peace, and an authentic faith looks like for us today, and how we remain connected in light of all the crazy, strange, unexpected turns life takes.”

The band is on Facebook and Instagram.

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
