TOP NAMES IN CHRISTIAN ROCK HELP RAISE MONEY

FOR THE CHRISTIAN ROCK 20

The Christian Rock 20 is setting out to raise $1,000 to replace worn-out equipment with help from some of their friends, including band members from Silverline, Southbound Fearing, Hawk Nelson, House Of Heroes, Shonlock, Family Force 5 and more!

When fans of the Christian Rock 20 pledge $30 or more, they will get a phone call from their choice of more than 10 of Christian rock’s biggest names.

Other rewards for pledging money to the show include on-air shout outs, Christian Rock 20 sponsorship opportunities, digital subscriptions to HM Magazine and CD grab bags.

Starting at noon Pacific time Oct. 7, 2011, the Christian Rock 20 launched its Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new production computer and other equipment. If the Christian Rock 20 does not reach its $1,000 goal by Nov. 05 at noon pacific time, donors are released from their pledges and are not charged.

The Christian Rock 20 is offered free of charge to stations who wish to add it to their weekend playlist. The show airs on 25 stations across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Paul Gibson and the Christian Rock 20 celebrated three years of broadcasting the show last month, featuring more than 90 different guest interviews and tons of giveaways since its inception in 2008.

Kickstarter.com is a way to fund creative projects with a unique all-or-nothing approach. Pledges are made toward a specific goal. When the goal is met, donors’ credit cards are charged the amount of their pledge. If the goal is not met by the deadline, however, no one is charged.

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.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
