Blessthefall will be co-headlining with Chiodos this summer on the Crowd Surf America Tour. Blessthefall’s latest album, Hollow Bodies, was a hit during their Hollow Bodies Tour earlier this year and this upcoming tour will continue to spearhead the critically-acclaimed album.

Beau Bokan, frontman of Blessthefall, said through the official release:

So excited to be touring with our good friends in Chiodos! They are one of the bands that helped shape this scene and we can’t wait to give the fans a show they’ll never forget!

The band also teamed up with Billboard to premiere their “Off the Record” video; the first of a two-part series that goes deep into Blessthefall’s history, and you can watch it here on HM.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
