cd relientk

Relient K’s, K is for Karaoke EP out today on Mono vs Stereo.  Produced by Mark Lee Townsend and Matthew Thiessen the release is available digitally and at all Vans Warped Tour stops.  Look for the band to release a full K Is For Karaoke album on October 4 in stores and digitally

“The album’s most halcyon moments are a too-good-to-be-true version of “Doctor Worm” and a can’t miss version of “Surf Wax America.” Long-time fans will certainly find this enjoyable, and somewhere, most likely on Twitter, John Flansburg and John Linnell are writing thank you notes to Thiessen, Hoopes and the clan. They Might Be Giants have never sounded better”

– Absolute Punk

Known across the globe for their explosive and amusingly entertaining live show, the band is currently playing their 3rd stint on the longest running tour in America, the Vans Warped Tour now in its 17th year.

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.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
