The time has finally arrived!  The Letter Black is releasing their full-length label debut next week, May 4th on Tooth & Nail Records.  This debut Hanging On By A Thread follows their Breaking the Silence debut EP that was released last fall.


“The full-length will rock just as hard, if not harder, as the EP,” affirms front woman Sarah Anthony. “We came up with the title because it puts into words how a lot of people, including myself, feel sometimes. A lot of people can relate to it, and that’s what we want.”

Members of The Letter Black have been invited to appear on stage with Hail (including Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, Phil Demmel of Machine Head, Dave Ellefson of Megadeth & Tim “Ripper” Owens of Judas Priest), a fellow super group jam featuring Dave Buckner of Papa Roach, Marcos Curiel of P.O.D., Travis Miguel of Atreau and Marcello Rapp of Soulfly, alongside Traa of P.O.D. serving as guest bassist for the band during a benefit. Currently the band is on tour with Skillet and Red (second leg touring with Skillet as they were on their fall tour as well).
What is in store for The Letter Black for the remainder of 2010? “We’d like to get on as many tours as possible, do a lot of shows and build a stronger fan base,” sums up Sarah. “And more than anything else, we want to continue bringing hope to those who have none.”
– Formed in 2006 as Breaking the Silence, recently changed their band moniker to The Letter Black
– Worked with Travis Wyrick (P.O.D, Pillar, Disciple)
– 150+ shows a year
– Call Uniontown, Pennsylvania home

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.
