Former Facedown Records / Dreamt Music artist Abel have signed with Come&Live! to release their upcoming full-length record entitled Lesser Men on October 19, 2010.  The Poughkeepsie, NY natives have spent the last year touring in support of their Facedown debut, The Honest Love, which garnered excellent reviews from the likes of Outburn, HM Magazine, and Indievisionmusic.com–making their upcoming release a highly anticipated sophomore effort.

Come&Live! is a grassroots effort founded by former Tooth & Nail A&R executive Chad Johnson.  The label is a non-profit organization whose goals are to build a community of ministry-focused bands and give away 100% of profits to backyard and global charities.  Lesser Men will be available as a no-strings-attached free download through the label’s website, Comeandlive.com beginning October 19th.

“Music is about people, and we believe that Come&Live! really understands that,” Abel vocalist Kevin Kneifel explains.  “I think the organization’s non-profit ‘anti-label’ model can be a strange thing to anyone looking in, but we feel that C&L! is the right place for Abel to be–we want to make our music and message available to as many people as we can.”

After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
