North Carolina punk behemoth Saint Hooligan joins Thumper Punk Records

Saint Hooligan takes old school punk rock back to its origins melding skulls, mohawks, graffiti, tattoos and attitude into their own unique blend of music.

Aggressively boot-stomping over mainstream musical boredom, Saint Hooligan delivers deep lyrics with purpose over burning guitars and thunderous beats.  Featuring front man Marc Heath on vocals and bass, Travis May on guitar and Andrew Toland on drums, Saint Hooligan defiantly awaits with the melodic sound of working class streets.  Hooligans for life; Saints for eternity!

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

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.
