WE AS HUMAN JOINS ATLANTIC RECORDS ROSTER;
POWERFUL HARD ROCK OUTFIT HERALDS LABEL DEBUT EP
ON MAJOR NATIONAL TOUR ALONGSIDE SKILLET;
THE “AWAKE & ALIVE TOUR” CURRENTLY UNDERWAY;
EP AVAILABLE AT ALL DIGITAL RETAILERS NOW

Atlantic Records has announced its signing of We As Human.  The hard-hitting rock band has released their label debut EP, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Deftones, Alice In Chains).
We As Human will make the EP available to fans attending their national tour supporting fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet, whose frontman, John Cooper, discovered the band.  The EP is the first release through a newly launched imprint label, a partnership between Cooper, longtime Skillet manager Zachary Kelm and attorney Todd Rubenstein.  The eagerly anticipated “Awake & Alive Tour” is currently underway through mid-November (see attached itinerary).  Joining We As Human and Skillet on the multi-artist bill is Disciple and Manafest.  For full details and ticket information, please visit www.weashuman.com/tour_dates.
Based in Northern Idaho, We As Human emerged as a powerful new force in hard rock with the release of their 2006 debut album, “UNTIL WE’RE DEAD.”  The “BURNING SATELLITES” EP followed in 2008, highlighted by the explosive singles, “Dead Man” and “Fly” (featured on a nationally televised ad campaign for TimeGate’s ground-breaking, first-person shooter game Section 8).
The five-man band has also proven a stunning live act, with multiple headline and support tours under their belts, as well as stage-stealing appearances at such annual gatherings as Creation Festival and Cornerstone Festival.  We As Human is currently hard at work recording their full-length Atlantic Records debut album. The as-yet-untitled collection is slated for release in 2012.

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.

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.
