Anberlin Tease Reunion With New Profile Image

Update: The band has changed their official website and have posted this same image. Anberlin has been dropping little hints the past few months that are leaving fans guessing. Today they swapped out their profile image on facebook with a new pic that appears to be a photo taped back together. Could this be symbolism? Could this another hint at a reunion? Or is it just a standard photo image swap and/or nothing at all? You debate below and talk about your favorite Anberlin moments from years past. Let’s all stand back in eager anticipation for the next step and hopefully it is the one thing us fans are hoping for…..reunion.

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

Brave Future - Repair (New Song)

This band – Brave Future, a group I’ve been constantly hyping right here on IVM is back with another NEW song titled “Repair”. Former members of the great Sent By Ravens make up Brave Future and this song is nothing short of extraordinary. Seriously, an incredible piece of work and a band to keep your eyes on. Check out the new song below.

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”. Pre-order on physical media including vinyl right here.

For King & Country - God Only Knows (Official Music Video)

For King & Country have just dropped another music video off their upcoming new full length album “Burn The Ships”. The emotionally charged new track “God Only Knows” connects with the listener in more ways than one. It is a beautiful song with a much deeper message. It balances words of hope and peace in the storm of doubt and pain with an underlying message of mental health awareness. Maybe I’m wrong but I haven’t seen this issue done with this caliber of quality in quite some time. Check out the video below and remember that there are always arms to catch you when you are at your worst and most desperate. There are those out there (including Christians) suffering the same afflictions, including myself.

The Choir Release New Album "Bloodshot"

Longest running alternative rock band in the Christian music scene – The Choir – are at again, dropping a super catchy and ear pleasing new full length record titled “Bloodshot”. It is truly amazing that after all these years this band can continue to churn the hits and songs most people haven’t yet discovered. A band of this talent bubbling just beneath the surface is unheard of but guess what, us fans have these legends to cherish all to ourselves. Am I right? Please go support these wonderful independent musicians by picking up merch in their store here or by purchasing in your digital store of choice. You can check out a new song in lyric video format, below. Catch the band live with The Prayer Chain and Dakoda Motor Co. in Nashville on August 4th.

Anberlin Tease Return?

If Anberlin’s recent post on Instagram is any indication of an imminent “reunion”, count me as excited. I love this band and any mention of new music from them is certainly reason enough to justify a GOOD DAY. I didn’t really understand their breakup the first time (a hiatus would have been sufficient). Check out the post below and discuss among yourselves. Anyone game for more Anberlin music?

Names Without Numbers - The Apathy Anthem

In case you missed it last month, I had Drew from Rival Consultants create a lyric video for the new Names Without Numbers song “The Apathy Anthem”. It came out pretty cool I think and if you give it a chance, I am sure you’ll enjoy it too. Names Without Numbers are an alt-emo-rock band from Nebraska who recently reunited after an almost decade long absence. Their music would please fans of Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, The Classic Crime, Taking Back Sunday, House Of Heroes, Acceptance, and Thrice. Lyric video can be found below. Follow the band on Facebook / Instagram / Website.

REVIEW : The Protest - Legacy

The world  is full of grit, seriousness, and dark themes within media. Whenever something “fun” comes around, it’s a nice change of pace.  The Protest’s debut album on Rockfest records, Legacy, provides a Christ-centered, lighthearted yet heavy hitting album that’s perfect for some summertime head-banging.
