A Tragedy in Progress (Across Five Aprils) Stream Entire Album atAbsolutepunk.net

A Tragedy In Progress and Absolutepunk.net have teamed up to make the band’s entire album available for exclusive streaming herehttp://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?p=112204712 . The album, entitled “Mechanical Weather” contains 13 songs that were tracked at Echelon Studios with Joseph McQueen. The record hits stores and online August 28th through Indianola Records.

Formed in 2010, A Tragedy in Progress is the complete and original line up of Across Five Aprils. The band had reunited for a series of reunion shows that year when they decided to write some new songs under the name of the band’s first record (A Tragedy in Progress). Eventually this led to long time A5A collaborators Indianola Records releasing the 2011 EP “Going Down With The Ship”.

Guitarist Jason Fields recently commented during an AtlSounds interview on what listeners can expect from this full length effort: “I feel like it’s a solid record start to finish. A lot of records have high points and a lot of filler in between. I feel like our record is strong throughout. Across Five Aprils fans will hear things that are indicative of this lineup and our chemistry, but they will hear better crafted songs with a more mature sound. That being said, I believe and hope a new listener would enjoy it just as much”

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
