I can’t believe the Fall Tour with Jars of Clay and Mariah McManus is here! It starts this week and I’m SO excited
to play – hope to see you!!

Check out the dates here <http://sleepingatlast.com/tour/>


Thrilled to announce My brand-new song, “We’re Still Here” which has officially been released into the wild TODAY!

Grab it now on iTunes
, or Amazon MP3
, or any of your favorite digital music stores!

In the process of writing and recording my next large-scale project (to be
announced SOON), this song came about, and with the Fall Tour
starting this week, it felt like the perfect time to release it!
(Also, I’m super impatient and didn’t want to wait..) For those of you
planning on coming out to any of the Fall shows, I’ll be debuting “We’re
Still Here” live for the first time!

This single is sporting a brand-new painting by the incredibly talented,
Geoff Benzing  (the artist responsible for just about all of my album art!) – another beautiful job, entirely embodying the
lyrics and imagery of this song! Love Geoff’s work. Support him <http://www.benzingart.com> , your walls deserve his art!

I sincerely hope you enjoy “We’re Still Here”! It’s a small precursor to what’s to come… a LOT of new music soon.

If you’d like, I would be so privileged to have your help in letting folks
know about it! Tweets, iTunes Reviews, Facebook posts.. any and all helps so
much to spread the word in this busy digital age we’re living in.

Thank you so much for reading and for listening to my songs. Lots more news
and music on the horizon… !!!

Much love, Ryan –

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.

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.

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.
