Before There Was Rosalyn have posted a new song on their facebook page.

Here’s a note with the lyrics from frontman Carlos Salazar:

We (Before There Was Rosalyn) have released a demo version of the title track to our upcoming release, entitled “Hypocrites”. You can listen at If you are the kind of person that enjoys knowing what it is that bands sing & scream about, I have posted the lyrics for you below.


No dying man hides from the truth.
No man scoffs at God in death, in plague,
or famine. No man hopes or dreams of
emptiness as they slip away a last and quiet
breath. Hypocrite, when will you learn?
You are but a speck of dust in the wind.
Are you the man willing to lay down his
life or are you the serpent that whispers
curse God and die? I know my heart is weak
like the light from the setting sun
but I swear I know You’re still there. Though I
fade with time, I know that You are forever.
My God is not mocked. Though I fade with
time, He does not. Oh, the grave waits silently,
patiently, and safely for us all but let it find me
not a coward or a liar and not a day
before the Son Of Man calls me home.


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.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
