Indie Vision Music Presents: Punk Never Dies Vol. 1

Launching October 31st at 10pm PST only at for FREE!!

Select songs playing on BrokenFM Radio Station (or stream it at the top of our website)

Attention all contributing bands:

I just want to thank each of you for taking part in our first ever “punk rock” free digital compilation. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do and that you’ll each be able to grown your fanbases because of it.

Here is some info for you:

Punk Never Dies Vol. 1 is an entirely FREE digital compilation featuring 75 songs from a ton of really great talent and awesome bands. There are NEW songs, unreleased songs, and recent songs from the artists contributing.

The download will be split evenly into TWO separate files to make downloading easier and quicker. Each file is about 175mb (total file size of Punk Never Dies is around 350mb).

All songs have been converted to 192kbps Mp3 format. I could have done bigger bit rates but it would have just weighed down the file size as you can imagine since we had 75 songs. So I just made them all the same. Unfortunately I just ran out of time for getting this thing mastered and I apologize that I wasn’t able to “master” these tracks for each of you.

Hopefully I’ll be more organized with Punk Never Dies Vol. 2 when I work on that one next year 😉

Coming in 2012:

Punk Never Dies Vol. 2

If any of you would like to return and contribute a new/original song for Punk Never Dies Vol. 2, I would absolutely love to have you. There is no current deadline for the compilation just yet but I’d like to start working on it in the new year with a projected launch of summertime 2012. Let me know if you’re interested or even if you know of some good Christian artists with sweet music and a positive message. I am open to any style of punk rock.

Take care everyone and may God continue to bless your lives.

In him,

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.

Employed to Serve

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

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.
