Gotee Records is pleased to announce the release of ZAPPIN (The Best Of), online and in stores September 14, 2010.  Spanning John Reuben’s career, the project (a digital and Christian retail exclusive) gives a snapshot of John’s last decade, spanning 6 albums and over 300,000 units sold.  ZAPPIN (The Best Of) will be an essential for old and new fans alike, containing 18 songs in one collection.

The project also includes a link in the packaging where fans can download all twelve of John’s acclaimed music videos.   Since his start as an ice cream vendor in his debut album’s “Do Not” video, Reuben has made his name over the years as not only a compelling musical artist, but as a creative visual artist.  Continuing with his male cheerleader in “Move”, and most recently, the traveling circus inspired “Town Folk” video, Reuben has developed a dozen iconic characters throughout his career.     Gotee felt no greatest hits collection could be complete without adding in these classic videos that respond so well to the music.

When asked about the project, Reuben quickly replied, “Really a decade already?! Well, alright then. Enjoy!”

Today, Gotee has launched a pre-order so fans can guarantee receiving the project on release day.   Fans are urged to visit gotee.com/store to pre-order.

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.

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.
