Los Angeles, CA May 21, 2010 – World-traveling Bremerton, WA musician Mike Herrera is a familiar name to those involved in the pop-punk music scene. As songsmith for both his rockabilly band Tumbledown and the Left Coast three-piece punk band, MxPx, for over 17 years, Herrera has left an indelible impression on his fans and critics alike. Now, he is taking his own, very personal solo act south of the border and returning to his South American fans after a four-year hiatus.

Having last soaked up the sun in Lima, Buenos Aires, and Sao Paulo with MxPx, Herrera is excited to return and perform his musical best for the rest of South America, in countries like Costa Rica, Columbia, and Argentina. “This trip is long overdue,” said Herrera, “and I can’t wait to share some new material with my South American friends and fans.”

Beneath all the tattoos and piercings, the ranting and stage wrecking, Herrera is an accomplished and acclaimed songwriter, and along with his tour-mate Jose Garzon of FeelsLikeFriday, he promises that this South American tour will offer nothing but his best.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. 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."

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.

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."
