The highly anticipated new album from well seasoned punk rock veteran, Ethan Luck, is out now. The album is jam packed with memorable choruses, bass heavy delivery, and a warm, inviting horn section that will keep you entertained for hours. This 10 track album was funded by fans through Kickstarter with a lot of us getting the vinyl version among other incentives. When I say “Buy it” I don’t mean that lightly. It is my full intention to persuade you, the reader, to drop what you’re doing and support true independent music by purchasing the album. SMLXLVinyl is stocking the album for those that missed out on the crowd funding campaign. More info can be found below. Just think of it this way, if you enjoyed the sounds of that 2004 OC Supertones album “Revenge of the OC Supertones” (that Ethan Luck helped write and played on) then you’re going to love this. Just take the more somber, introspective, and kick back songs of that record mixed together with some Interrupters, Rebelution, Hepcat, and The Dingees, to get an idea of the sounds found within. The production is top of the line and the musicians featured are definite pros (ex-members of OC Supertones, The Ws, and more). Ethan has been in so many bands in the past 22 years or so that it would be tough to document each involvement. Demon Hunter, Relient K, The Dingees, Value Pac, Project 86, OC Supertones, Pax, etc etc. Thank you Ethan for making the album you were always meant to create. Now all of you go give this as listen!

Ulterium Records will release the Theocracy album “Mirror of Souls” in honor of the 10th anniversary of this acclaimed album. You can pre-order from Ulterium direct right here. It is a limited pressing and available in 2 different color options (Colored option limited to 150 copies). I still remember hearing this record for the first time and being blown away by not just the quality but the musicianship and those vocals! There really isn’t another “Christian” group like them out there and they deserve all the praise they get. Ulterium Records is an amazing label and has continued to put out quality power metal and symphonic metal for over a decade now. I remember giving these tracks to a reviewer we had at the time and I can just imagine what must have been going through his mind at the time. “What the heck is this?”, he must have said lol, good thing I was persistent in getting coverage for Theocracy. I think myself and our readers are better off for it, right?
Metalcore fans rejoice. The much loved former Solid State Records band, MyChildren MyBride, will embark on a cross country tour for the 10th anniversary of their break out hit record “Unbreakable”.
