MHS in Louder Than War Magazine
Colin discusses the new MHS album, and his novel in this month’s Louder Than War Magazine. In the shops now!
Now spring has sprung, I leave you on a romantic note: two MHS fans in Austin, Texas, met on a dating site 5 years ago because they each registered MHS as one of the things they liked (I was relieved they were humans and not sheep). And well, fast-forward to now and they got very happily married on April 8th — the album release day (and my birthday) — and have shared their brilliant story on Facebook: congrats to Reneau & Nick!
