THE LETTER BLACK SUCCESS:
In 2009, the band debuted with their now out-of-print EP, Breaking the Silence. The group then followed-up with its full-length debut, Hanging On By A Thread, which has sold over 30,000 copies. THE LETTER BLACK has also had radio success with four radio singles from their debut, “Best of Me” (CHR No. 17), “Hanging On By A Thread” (CHR No. 23, Rock No. 6), “Believe” (Rock No. 4) and the current single “New Fire” (Rock No. 17). Media have also gravitated to this heavy-hitting band as they have been covered in Revolver, AOL Noisecreep, AOL RadioBlog, NewReleaseTuesday, JesusFreakHideout, and HM Magazine.

This Pennsylvania-based band has also toured relentlessly since their beginning. The band has performed the past two years at the One Love For CHI benefit where they shared the stage with The Memorials, Brian “Head” Welch, Deftones, Dredg, Eyes Set To Kill, Hoobastank, and Philm with Dave Lombardo. THE LETTER BLACK has also toured with Skillet, Drowning Pool, Decyfer Down, Sevendust, P.O.D, Vince Neil, HAIL!, and Mushroomhead.

Currently the THE LETTER BLACK is on tour with Brian “Head” Welch from KoRn on The Over My Head Tour, which is presented by the Mocha Club and HM Magazine. The tour will be running through April 28th.  Check out the tour dates at http://www.theletterblack.com/tour-dates/.  THE LETTER BLACK will also be touring nationwide with appearances at major festivals.

THE LETTER BLACK ORGIN:
The origins of Tooth & Nail’s highly heralded hard rock acquisition actually dates back to the members time in Breaking the Silence. After forming in 2006, the group entered the studio independently with Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Pillar, Disciple), followed by an impressive streak of 150 shows a year including a last minute call from the T&N to serve as a substitute for a broken up band on the otherwise successful Five 4 Five Tour alongside Dizmas and Children 18:3 (with just two weeks notice).

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.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

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.
