WITH INCREASE “SIGNS OF THE TIME” EP
FOR FANS OF: Defeater, Verse, Killing The Dream
OUT NOW on Blood & Ink Records
With Increase, hailing from Tampa, FL, are among a new breed actively picking up the torch of Spirit-filled hardcore.  On their debut EP, “Signs Of The Time,” they demonstrate their incredible talent for balancing a melodic hardcore intensity with something more raw and, at times, almost desperate.  The result finds the band clearly drawing influences from contemporaries, yet still creating a sound uniquely their own.  If nothing else, their debut’s four songs serve as a small taste of the awesome music sure to come.
POINTS OF INTEREST:
* With Increase toured extensively in Summer 2011 and regularly venture throughout the Southeast.  They will be doing a Winter 2011 East Coast tour alongside fellow Floridians Losin’ It.
* Release includes exclusive digital booklet, featuring lyrics and liner notes.  Photography for the booklet was shot by the band themselves, with design by The New Language (Saints Never Surrender, Ironwill, GlueHC).

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.

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.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.
