I am excited to reveal the track listing for the new Craig’s Brother ep “Devils In The Details” (to be released soon on Indie Vision Music). The ep which comes 15 years after their last ep “Epidemic” shows a band building on the strength of their previous material while embracing the future and offering some thought provoking punk rock. Pre-Orders for the CD will go live as soon as we get a release date locked in. Things take time and quality is the most important so let’s all sit patiently waiting for the punk rock kings to knock one out of the park.

Don’t you love that headline? Seriously though, I am so thankful for all of you listening to the music I put out in 2018, following the bands, requesting the tunes on your favorite stations, buying merch, and just for supporting Indie Vision Music this year. It has been an amazing ride. I still have that Craig’s Brother Ep on the way and then the rest of 2019 is up in the air. Currently working hard in my machining business and trying to figure out what to do next music wise. We are actually moving facilities to one down the street in Anaheim and yes that includes all the IVM merch (I ship from my real job). Anyway, check out the Billboard Christian Rock Radio Charts for this week and marvel at the sheer sight of infectious music invading the airwaves. Charts can be found below. This week Grandpa Loves Rhinos and Names Without Numbers both entered the main “Christian Rock National Airplay” chart in great positions. Keep requesting these tunes and let’s blow up 2019 in a big way. Don’t forget about new Craig’s Brother on the way. Thanks again everyone and God Bless you all this Christmas/New Years season.

Earlier this year we were stoked to learn that IVM had several artists charting on the Billboard Christian Rock Charts for Radio Play. Mainframe, Grandpa Loves Rhinos, Light The Way, and Craig’s Brother all had songs on the charts throughout much of the year. It went a little quiet past few months until a friend alerted me to this last week’s chart showing Grandpa Loves Rhinos and Names Without Numbers both landing a spot. On top of that, a really cool punk rock band by the name of Reliance charted with their song “Broken Bottles” who we support here at IVM. So head on over to your favorite rock station and request these songs: Grandpa Love Rhinos “The Ministry of Aquaman”, Names Without Numbers “The Apathy Anthem”, and Reliance “Broken Bottles”. Thanks to all the stations spinning our music: BrokenFM, WXGN, Revocation Radio, The Christian Rock 20, and many others. Thanks for supporting the little guys. Keep on requesting at RadioU and one of these days they’ll play our music.

In honor of our great country’s independence and the 18th Birthday of Indie Vision Music, I have released both of the new “Family & Friends Samplers” through all digital networks and streaming sites. Plus it is up on bandcamp as well, right here. These compilations are jam packed with awesome new and unreleased music from a variety of bands spanning on sorts of genres and musical styles. There is literally something for EVERYONE! Check out the IVM Spotify Playlist below featuring all 3 samplers. You can also purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play where I would hope you might write a nice review? That would be cool ;). The CD versions of the two new samplers will be shipped to me on July 11th so all of you with current orders in the storenvy webstore will have them shipped out shortly after. Thanks again everyone for supporting what I have done for the past 18 years here at this website. I know the site has gone through countless changes, alterations, logo swaps, staff member changes, on and off label releases, entertaining comments, but most of all a beautiful community and one that I treasure deeply. I have seen so many trials, errors, personal struggles, professional mistakes and mishaps, sadness and stress, but there has always been a heavy dose of perseverance on my part. I haven’t give much thought to the negativity or anyone who has put down what I’ve attempted to accomplish these past 18 years. It didn’t matter then and doesn’t matter now. I do what I do because I love this music we share and the passion I have for sharing this Faith I’ve grown to embrace regardless of my shortcomings. I’ll never give up the fight even long after this site retires someday and I hope in some small trivial way that IVM has touched a few people across the globe and hopefully for the better. We are all so different and from unique backgrounds but inside, we’re all the same. No matter where you’re at or where you’ve come from, there is a God who loves you and cares for you. Let this music speak to you and Don’t give up the fight! #IVMFOREVER Also, in celebration of our 18th Birthday there are a handful of new/old tshirts, hoodies, kid’s tees, and women’s tees over here in our Storefrontier site. Please pick some up and help support Indie Vision Music

In celebration of the upcoming new music from Nebraska based indie rock/emo band Names Without Numbers, the band has been posting these special “Meet the Band” type videos on their Facebook page. They will do it every week leading up to the May 21st release of the brand new single on IVM and the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign. Check out the video (both of them) below. Make sure to visit them on Facebook here and say hello. This talented group of men known as Names Without Numbers for those that are unfamiliar with their music would most likely earn a fan out of you for those that enjoy bands like Anberlin, House Of Heroes, The Juliana Theory, Jimmy Eat World, and Taking Back Sunday.

All orders of Small Wars right here will get instant download of the ep on release day. Last release of April and for several weeks will be Must Build Jacuzzi “Last Place” and I am truly excited about this release among all the other fantastic albums put out this past month. Tapes are going fast due to it’s limited nature so get yours right here. After these “Metallic Gold” ones sell out it will not be reprinted and next pressing will be on a new color. Now on to the really exciting announcement, Indie Vision Music can officially say we have Billboard Charting Songs on the Nielsen Top Christian Rock Charts! It may seem insignificant and so small time but for a label like IVM with no team, no employees, no radio staff, this is a huge accomplishment. I’ve been working so hard at this for nearly 18 years and have never reached such a powerful ranking. This is only the beginning and there is still so much more to offer. If you want to help IVM continue charting, call BrokenFM or visit them at www.broken.fm and make your requests. The songs below are the ones I have charting.
