“It’s catchy enough to warrant some serious radio play, but intricate enough to please the ears of listeners who enjoy more complex music.” – AbsolutePunk.net

Singer Jeremy Spring once again will embark on a very intimate tour, where he will be playing living rooms across America, literally on a solo acoustic run deemed The Living Room Tour III.

“This is the third year I’ve done an unplugged tour in fan’s living rooms, except this year I added another leg to include the west coast. No sound system, no ticket sales, no awkward local opening bands; it’s just me and an acoustic guitar sharing songs and stories from all of AK’s releases. Our fan base has been incredibly generous about opening up their homes, welcoming strangers in for the show, but there’s no doubt we are all friends by the end of the night. It’s not like a show at all, and there is a real sense of community and lots of sing a longs! The host’s think I’m joking, but I mostly show up for the snacks and coffee each night anyway. Having added so many extra cities this year I hope a lot of AK’s friends and fans can make it out for this special tour”

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. 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.
