Call To Preserve are about to embark upon their final tour in support of their last release Validation. Validation will be a 7″ vinyl record containing 4 brand new tracks from the band, released on July 5, available only on vinyl or digitally. “We’ve wanted to put out vinyl for years and felt we had a few more things to say before we go, so this seemed like the perfect time and place to put out a 7”,” says the band.

The tour kicks off later this summer with Dead Icons and Strike First Records’ Dynasty. This will be your last chance to see Call to Preserve live and the band has done what they could to make the tour as wide-ranging as possible. We hope you’ll be able to join us in saying farewell to a great Facedown band on The Final Call To Preserve Tour. Full dates below.

We want to do our best to make sure those who want to can come see us for the last time. We never thought that this band would get as far as it did. We never thought we’d have the chance to travel so much and tour with some of our favorite bands and make such amazing friends from all over the world. We are more thankful than you’ll ever know. – Harbor Partin, Call To Preserve

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

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.
