Altar Boys Release New Album "No Substitute"

Altar Boys have officially dropped their first new album in 25 years titled “No Substitute”. This new album is actually a collection of songs written after “Forever Mercy” and before they went on hiatus. The bare bones tracks have been re-recorded and freshened up for the world to hear. The songs run the style divide between their hit albums “Gut Level Music”, “Against The Grain”, and “Forever Mercy” while mixing in modern elements and a much fuller sound. It’s everything you’ve come to love about these legendary song makers and your expectations will be blown away. As much as I love those classic songs from the 80’s, there is just something special about the raw passion of a group of gentlemen coming to grips with their Faith, Hope, and age. This is truly timeless music and it doesn’t matter who you are or from what generation because these songs come from the heart. This album can’t be categorized or labeled as this or that, “No Substitute” is simply GOOD MUSIC. It’s rare for a band to maintain their legendary status for over 30 years and still come out swinging with the best of them. I can think of a handful of artists with or without the faith connection and to be honest some should have hung it up years ago. This isn’t the case with Altar Boys and as long as Mike and the boys still have a voice to share, nothing should stop them. Go check out “No Substitute” now on all digital networks. You can listen to the song “1000 Miles” below and I’ve posted the Spotify embed as well. Enjoy.

For King & Country - Amen (Official Music Video)

For King & Country have gotten quite creative, with an artistic attempt at creating an engaging music video. It feels as though each one of their new music videos comes across as a sort of mini-movie. It’s quite an impressive undertaking and shows a group with talent that many others lack in their presentations. I think these guys are going to really impact listeners with this new album and if these new songs are any indication of the direction of this new album, count me as number one fan. This album and the new one from Lauren Daigle are highly anticipated new releases for myself. Check out the new music video for the song “Amen” off their forthcoming album – “Burn The Ships”.

Lauren Daigle - Still Rolling Stones (New Song)

Lauren Daigle is on fire with these new songs off her forthcoming new album “Look Up Child” which is out September 7th. This new song “Still Rolling Stones” can be heard below. Lauren’s voice has never been stronger than it is now and this strength is clearly evident on “Still Rolling Stones”. This song truly captures her talent and showcases an artist on the rise. There is just something entirely unique and original with her new songs. Her voice captures the heart of the song and proves that “worship” doesn’t have to be a mundane, stale, and overrated “Christian” term. Maybe I’m crazy but I swear this new album is going to be one of the biggest things of 2018.
