You know the MxPx Pokinatcha Punk mascot? Well, John Nissen, who designed that great piece of art, sent us a band recommendation that we want to pass on:

Last year my old friend Andy Wiseman asked me if I wanted to create an album cover for his new band Truth or Consequences and even though I hadn’t heard them yet I gladly said yes. I had worked with Andy on numerous projects over the years and have always enjoyed his music. His writing style is very much effected by his Christian faith but he speaks in a way that anyone can understand and enjoy. He was a member of some of my favorite punk bands back in the 90’s including Empty Tomb and Shorthanded but this is a new style for him as he and some buddies formed a hyped-up honkey tonk band. I have been enjoying the album for quite a while but was wondering if it would ever see the light of day since it seems that all the guys in the band are busy with their families and full-time jobs. I’m glad to say that it is now finally available on iTunes. So I would encourage you to check it out, sample it, and if you think you would be interested go ahead and purchase some or all of it. The EP is only $6.93. There is also a single that Andy did the cover for himself where he compiled a rough band logotype that I did with a photo and it’s a good song too. I have included a link below to the EP so you don’t have to search for it.

I won’t be offended if you are not interested but I just thought I’d share this with my friends as it is sure to get very little publicity and I think it’s worth a listen.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
