arkofthecovenant
We are excited to announce that Ark of the Covenant have signed with Facedown Records.
AOTC came out swinging in 2011 with that infamous Connecticut brand of driven hardcore. They recorded their EP Separation at Silver Bullet Studio (Shai Hulud, Life in Your Way) and released it with Strike First Records. Now they’re back at Silver Bullet, recording their first full length Self Harvest with Gregory Thomas of Misery Signals.
The band’s debut EP garnered much praise and appeared on Best of 2011 lists.
Hopecore said “It has EVERYTHING…”  “…comparable to Impending Doom and The Acacia Strain, but with a signature sound that sets them apart”
“heaviness that rips bands such as Emmure into pieces…ridiculously brutal” – Erik Thomas, Teeth of the Divine

Ark of the Covenant’s debut full length Self Harvest will be released on Facedown Records this winter.

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.

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."
