Stavesacre is back at it. The band, who last put out an album in 2009, has promised a sixth album, appropriately titled Stavesacre VI. The songs for the album are currently in the demo phase. In order to help fund the release of the album independently, they’re turning to crowdfunding. Packages include physical copies, vinyl, hoodies and shirts.

Ryan Dennee, Dirk Lemmenes, Jeff Bellew, Sam West and Mark Salomon last released music together in 2009 when they put out Against the Silence, a five-song EP they also released independently. Stavesacre’s biggest release was from 1999, Speakeasy, an album that peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.

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.

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.
