I am very proud and humbled to present this brand new track titled “Accelerating Into Brake Lights” from the band Stavesacre off their brand new full length record “MCMXCV”. You can listen and stream the track below. Make sure to pre-order the new record here for all of you that couldn’t get in on the crowd funding campaign. I am totally floored with the new Stavesacre album. It’s everything I had hoped for when I first signed up to contribute to their campaign. There are so many rushed reunion campaigns these days and I’m glad the guys really took their time in perfecting their craft to put out their best material in a decade. It’s on par with some of my faves in their catalog like Speakeasy, How To Live With A Curse, Absolutes, Bull Takes Fighter, and even Friction. This band can easily kick the butts of any of the newer groups just setting up shop on warped tour. I really hope Stavesacre gets some long over due credit and respect with this new album because it is well deserved. This album is everything you’ve come to expect from this seasoned group of musicians and that is PURE PERFECTION! This album is like the perfect continuation of the sound from #HowToLiveWithACurse mixed in with sounds you would have found on #Speakeasy and #BullTakesFighterep I even hear the influential sounds of their first two records: #Absolutes and #Friction. Stavesacre has far outdone themselves with this incredible, awe inspiring set of songs. Flawless production, intelligent songwriting and that unmistakable voice. All you salivating fans that missed out on the first preorders will without a doubt LOVE this album once you get it. Continued →
I am super thrilled to bring you an exclusive stream of the new TAKE Ep. This independent Las Vegas, NV. metal-hardcore-rock hybrid band were around for a few years last decade. They went on hiatus and a member went on to front The Forerunner. Well after several years off this explosive heavy band is back and with a brand new ep to prove once again how powerful their music can be. It’s edgy, it is abrasive, and it is going to hit you over the head like a two ton brick of pure adrenaline. Step into the pit and prepare to throwdown with one of Nevada’s best kept secrets. This my friends is the band TAKE and I present their ep, “The Dead Will Rise”. Listen below. The band’s ep will be out by this Friday on all digital networks. Continued →

Check out the new Stephen Christian solo album titled “Wildfires” now wherever fine music is sold/streamed. The 10 track album on BEC Recordings is full of haunting and beautiful worship anthems with cutting edge production to make a highly enjoyable listening experience. Stephen has been making music as part of the independent music scene since the mid-90s (Sagoh) all the way through Anberlin, and Anchor & Braille. This man has come a long way over the past two decades. This album is a perfect representation of someone redefining who he is and what he believes in. Give this album a chance and support Stephen’s latest endeavor. More to come soon.

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.
