Wanna Help the Band?

We’re often asked if we accept donations. Yes we do. Like other ministries, we have many expenses. Although the donations aren’t tax deductible, they are immediately put to good use. If you’d like to donate, thanks.

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.

Bill Hubauer has been working on producing our upcoming CD, Soundproof every day, though he works about 60 hours a week with his two other jobs. As he says, “Slow and steady wins the race!”

That being said, we are nearing the finish line. Hubie should have mixes for us to review soon, and we’re still planning to have the CD available for you in October.

My wife, Lisa, is now halfway to the finish line in her pregnancy. She had a sonogram Tuesday. The baby’s vital signs looked good, and the technician said that our fifth child will be our first son!

When I was single, I never had dreams of being a father. Then I literally had a dream in which I was holding my newborn son. I was so happy and filled with love, I took it as a sign that if I ever had children, God would provide the love and joy I’d need.

Over the years, He certainly has provided the love and joy, and now He has provided a son. In the meantime, He’s already provided us with four beautiful daughters, who are very eager for a baby brother. Praise the Lord, and please pray for my wife and our son.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
