Post-hardcore bands Convictions and Eleutheria (photo below) have announced a co-headlining tour around the South. The Ohio-based Convictions, a self-proclaimed aggressive worship band, is coming off a successful 2014 touring season which prepared the way for their EP, Hallowed Spirit / Violent Divide, which debuted at No. 6 on the iTunes Metal Charts this year. Eleutheria is a post-hardcore band from Memphis, TN whose second album, Taken at the Flood, was released in early May. (If you’re curious, Eleutheria is an ancient Greek wording which can be translated as “freedom” or “liberty.”)

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

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.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
