About Circleslide:
Since the band’s debut project, which landed them on Christianity Today’s list of “Best New Artists,” among other accolades, Circleslide – whose lineup includes frontman Gabe Martinez, lead guitarist Jonathan DeAnda, bassist Eric Vickers and drummer Lee Yoder – has toured unceasingly, refining their modern rock ruminations, while keeping their ministry agenda firmly in focus. In addition to shows with newsboys, tobyMac, MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Salvador, Jaci Velasquez and downhere, the guitar-driven band has headlined everything from clubs to churches and colleges, with plenty of youth camps and outreach events in between – all of which build off the group’s Youth With A Mission beginnings.The band was developing Echoes of the Light last spring when Nashville was hit with a devastating flood which destroyed Martinez’s house, as well as all of the band’s gear, instruments, PA and trailer. Circleslide’s ordeal, and the season of spiritual reassurance which followed, directly inspired the band’s recent songwriting. “We have a renewed realization that God has called us to this ministry, says Martinez. “Nothing’s going to hold us back from spreading His word.”

Circleslide’s Echoes of The Light is available on Save the City Records and distributed through Provident-Integrity Distribution. For more information on Circleslide and Echoes of The Light, visit circleslide.net or savethecityrecords.com.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

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.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
