Showbread, in support of their album The Fear of God which underthegunreview.net described as “heavy hardcore meets punk music with intricate vocal lines on a variety of topics that are each discussed with a fury only Josh Dies can deliver.”, have been on the road since August 13th with Goodnight Caulfield and The Gallery.  To find information about their tour dates or The Fear of God, please visit http://www.myspace.com/showbread.

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.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
