Signal Versus Noise - Take It From Me

Signal Versus Noise just dropped their new anthem in recognition of Suicide and Prevention Month. This beautiful song has some pretty inspiring lyrics meant to offer hope for those seeking solace from the pain of mental anguish. You are not alone in this fight. I too struggle with mental health issues and understand your plight. Never be alone, never be ashamed, and never stop seeking help. There is hope, there is an answer, and there is a remedy for your pain. Prayer and a Christ centered support system is amazing as is dr assisted psychological help. Drop the stigma, you’re not alone. #mentalhealthawareness

I’ve seen this posted around facebook/instagram and I wanted to our support as well. Josh Auer who has been an active member of the music scene for over 2 decades now and has played with groups like Pax217, OC Supertones, Avner, Phil Wickham, and more recently his own project CHPTRS, has had the unfortunate task of caring for a very ill young child named “Rowen”, alongside his wife Amanda.

Remedy Drive - Warlike (Official Music Video)

So this video was released back in January of this year along with their new album “The North Star” and I must say that it is a heavy hitter. I can’t believe I overlooked this release and didn’t give it proper promotion right here on IVM. Remedy Drive have created music that is deep and rich in content, overflowing with complex symbolism and a certain sense of urgency. You don’t come across music like this in Christian music scene all that often and I really enjoy this track as well as the album. For those looking for comparisons I would say I hear a bit of Switchfoot mixed with Jack White, Needtobreathe, The Black Keys, House of Heroes, and even a little Twenty One Pilots. Check out the video for “Warlike” below and purchase through all your favorite digital networks, streaming sites, or on CD from the band direct right here. They also have some items in their online store made by survivors of trafficking “T-shirts, bracelets, necklaces, elephants, boho pants and other items are handmade by survivors of trafficking and help fund organizations helping to rehabilitate and restore women who have been exploited”.

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.
