HM PREMIERE: XIII Minutes drops new music video for ‘Who Told You’

September 11, 2020 By David Stagg

Today, HM is proud to premiere the newest music video for “Who Told You,” an update to XIII Minutes’ 2019 single release. The Tulsa, OK-based band dropped Obsessed in a little over a year ago in 2019, seeing a groundswell of grassroots support and momentum, but, as with a number of bands in 2020, couldn’t continue to tour due to COVID-19. After a brief hiatus with the departure of lead guitarist Aaron Smith, the band is ready to hit the digital waves with the video.

We spoke with vocalist Michael Rowley about the band’s experience working on the song and video:

“‘Who Told You’ is one of those songs that gets stuck in your head and doesn’t leave. That’s how we knew we were on to something good. It is still a bit surreal for me to know this song charted No. 1 one on various charts throughout 2019. … We were sandwiched in between War of Ages and Demon Hunter. I’m not gonna lie: I did fanboy a little bit and probably wandered around in disbelief for the better part of the day that I received the news.”

You can follow the band on Instagram and grab the record at their shop.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Tigerwine 2020

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."

Idle Threat

Hope Through the Loss

Idle Threat's latest EP, 'Nothing is Broken for Good,' paints a serendipitous picture of what comes from hope in the future: 'The record is definitely about loss and hope through that loss.'

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.
