Up from The Ashes 3 is right around the corner! August 28 and 29, 2010 in Temecula California!
We have some very exciting news to share with all! We are very pleased to announce the addition of two more bands to our festival this year! Up first we are pleased to have on Sunday’s line up something all you fans of the Altar Boys are gonna want to check out!


Howdy! The Altar Billies are a rockabilly/psychobilly trio that perform the music of the Altar Boys (A punk/rock group from the 80s and early 90s). Led by Altar Boys front man Mike Stand on geetar and vocals, the group has taken the music of the Altar Boys, stripped it down to its roots, put a twang to it, and a swing that will keep your toes a tapp’n and your fingers snapp’n. Rounding out the line up are Johnny X on upright and Chuck “Wagon” Cummings on the skins.

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.

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.
