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.
