My Epic released a gem of an album last December with Behold. While they were hyperfocused, someone else was helping to accessorize the story, documenting the entire process from writing to release, pulling back a little of the curtain, helping the band break down the barrier between artist and fan. It’s a cornerstone of their mission, and this piece is more of an attempt to relate and reveal their true lives to their fans.

As the description says, “Arriving is the perfect look into what makes My Epic who they are.”

The band caught up with HM Magazine to tell us about the project:

I was in this room with no windows and no sunlight all day for 14 hours a day trying to write lyrics and accomplishing nothing. It’s always been that way, really hard, and then there’s a breakthrough and it just comes.

Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
