I’d like to take a moment and bring attention to a new show on HGTV called “Boise Boys” featuring Luke Caldwell (and his family) a name you might recognize as he led the band Esterlyn for more than a decade. He is now a part of this show along with his work partner, Clint Robertson. You can find out more info on their website here and hopefully HGTV will pick up the new show as a series regular soon.
MAINFRAME, the new band residing in the Far East and playing a style of punk rock that would have fit in the 90’s/early 00’s is proud to present their debut single titled “Superstructure”. The song is up on the IVM Bandcamp now and it will be released to all Digital Networks through Indie Vision Music this Friday. The plan is to drop this single and follow it up soon with the release of the band’s debut Ep, digitally via Indie Vision Music. If you like what you hear from this new group make sure to like them on Facebook here and follow for the latest updates. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this band and their origins.

Orange County, CA. based Alt Rock singer-songwriter David Di Maria, has released his brand new music video for the song “Apple of Your Eye” which you can watch below.
Could a 7-10 Split “reunion” be in the works. Check out the rehearsal pic below and speculate with your thoughts. The band released a full length and ep on Screaming Giant and then 2 full lengths The Stars Have Fallen and Kill The Messenger on New School Records before calling it quits in 2005.

Last Friday, Shai Linne released his new album Still Jesus, which kicks off with the track “Random Thoughts 3.” The song addresses, in part, some of Shai’s concerns with Christian hip-hop, especially from the Reach Records collective. Ruslan, formerly of theBREAX and Dream Junkies, has made a response song entitled “Random Thoughts 4 (Shai Linne).” You can stream both of the songs below. Continued →

Hey friends it’s that time again, time for another “list”. Feel free to offer up your big Laugh-Out-Louds and smirks for some “hits” I found appealing 10 years ago. A lot of stuff from that year was enjoyed by me, some I am rediscovering, and others were missed opportunities. Check out my “list” below and feel free to listen to the playlist I created on Spotify for this list found in the article. Remember kids, “some” of these releases may not have the best language so if you get queasy at the thought of dirty words from general market (do we still use the word ‘secular’?) bands, you may want to skip those parts. So check out my faves below and don’t forget to check out “The Best of 1997” list coming at ya soon! Continued →

Times of Grace, the metalcore side project of Killswitch Engage, have begun working on their sophomore album. Jesse Leach, the vocalist of the project, has begun demoing vocals out for their next endeavor. Many people thought of Killswitch Engage as a Christian act, which it is not, but if fans of that band are looking for a more faith centered project, Times of Grace is your band. Continued →
Love & Death, the nu-metal band, have finally started working on new music. And just as I discovered that J.R.

The O.C. Supertones are finishing up work on their final Live recording which will be called simply, “Live Vol. 2”. It was recorded and filmed at their final show on June 3rd 2017. There is also going to be a film to go along with it. It was a great show and a wonderful farewell to a band whose ministry has touched many across the globe. I am sure this recording and film will combine all the best elements of their final show and make it an unforgettable listening experience.
