MAY 2010

First and foremost, we’d like to express our thoughts and prayers to everyone in the Nashville community as they recover and rebuild from one of the greatest floods in the area’s history.  The statement that has been swarming around is so accurate “WE ARE NASHVILLE.”

As we enter the fifth month of 2010, we can already look back and see a great string of releases from the label(s):  Adie, Manafest, Demon Hunter, The Classic Crime, Fair, Living Sacrifice, Secret and Whisper, and Number One Gun.  We have also seen some amazing debuts from Jaymes Reunion, Sent By Ravens, Write This Down, The Letter Black, Queens Club and an EP from Poema. Looking ahead we have a lot of exciting releases coming down the pike – check out the updates below to see what is going on!

Thank you for your support and interest in sharing our artists’ music & lives!

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.

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.

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.
