You’re watching the new lyric video for “The Laws that Guide My Feet,” the first single from Arms for Elephants debut album, My Judas Scene. The post-hardcore band from Mankato, MN previously released an EP, Identities, in 2014, and the follow-up full length will be available physically and digitally on Sept. 1. HM Magazine’s Kyle Lehman will be directing the music video for this track; the lyric video seen here was done by View Maniac.

Guitarist and vocalist Fletch Archerd spoke via press release about the track:

“We chose ‘The Laws that Guide My Feet’ to be our first single because it captures so many elements of our sound in just a few fleeting measures. Lyrically, the song exhibits multiple voices/characters at various points. Instrumentally, it’s one of our more complex songs, and yet remains tethered to one simple hook in the chorus.”

If you dig the band’s sound, preorders for the album are currently available through iTunes and the band’s Bandcamp page.

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.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a 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."
