SKILLET and THEFT have just been confirmed as special guests for select dates on CREED‘s “$20-10 $Tour” dates, with RED also appearing at several concerts.  As previously announced, “The $20-$10 Tour” kicks offon July 28th in Washington D.C., and was named because the first 2,010 reserved seats are $20 all-in.  This means fans pay a flat rate with no added service charges, and the remaining seats will be priced at $20 or $10, plus applicable ticketing fees.  A full itinerary and lineup can be found below.

GRAMMY-nominated recording group SKILLET is set to take their explosive live show on the road once again in support of their highly acclaimed album, AWAKE, which made a blockbuster debut on the Billboard 200, entering the chart at #2.  The album continues to reign as a favorite, ascending the upper half of the Billboard 200.  AWAKE is highlighted by the Top 5 Active Rock smash, “Monster” and the electrifying, “Hero,” which is currently Top 25 at the format.  For up-to-the-minute news and information, visit www.skillet.com or www.myspace.com/skilletmusic.


THEFT‘s spiraling anthem “Breathing Underwater” became the theme for the late DJ AM‘s much-publicized intervention series, Gone Too Far, and the blistering and emotional song  “Never Be The Same” was chosen as the theme song for the upcoming MTV show ‘If You Really Knew Me,’ premiering later in 2010.  The band was recently honored to write original music for the award winning documentary show “True Life” as the series’ first guest composers.


Formed in Nashville, Tennessee over four years ago, RED made an immediate impact with its 2006 Grammy-nominated debut album, End of Silence, which featured the band’s signature sound of sonic layering, rich orchestration and visceral dynamics on the rock radio hits “Breathe Into Me” and “Already Over.”  Red brought back producer Rob Graves and mixer Ben Grosse for their second album, Innocence & Instinct, whichboasted their Top 10 rock radio hit “Death of Me.” Innocence & Instinct earned Red a 2010 Grammy nomination for the Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album, and the band won “Rock Album Of The Year” at the 2010 Dove Awards. Red’s nearly non-stop road experience has included tours with artists such as Papa Roach, Sevendust, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, Buckcherry and Seether, among others.

“The $20-$10 Tour” will feature new songs from CREED such as “Rain,” “Overcome” and”A Thousand Faces”from Full Circle, the band’s 2009 release and first new album in eight years, as well as hits such as “Higher,” “My Sacrifice,” “With Arms Wide Open,””One”and “What’s This Life For.”

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.

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.

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."
