STREET DATE: FEBRUARY 16, 2010

closeyoureyesThe newest member to the Victory Records family, CLOSE YOUR EYES, is patiently waiting for February 16, 2010 to arrive when their debut album, We Will Overcome, finally hits shelves. “It speaks a story of our struggles, trials, and the things we need and love,” says guitarist Brett Callaway. “We don’t limit ourselves or work with any restrictions. We write what we feel.”

We Will Overcome shapes a chapter in the lives of this quintet. The release of We Will Overcome will be preceded by the first single, “Song for the Broken,” which will hit college radio on February 23rd and active and alternative outlets soon after. A video shot in the band’s hometown of Abilene, Texas for the single, will be released in accordance with the album on February 16, 2010.

We Will Overcome is available for pre-order here at the Victory Records Webstore. A limited edition package is also available here and for $18, this includes the new release in CD format, as well as a t-shirt.

ABOUT THE BAND: Hailing form Abilene, Texas, CLOSE YOUR EYES formed in 2005, but it wasn’t until 2008 when they were granted national recognition, and after sweeping 250 newcomers in the Cornerstone “New Band Showcase”. Shortly after CLOSE YOUR EYES was selected as one of HM Magazine’s “Pick of the Litter” artists, they rocked the HM Magazine Showcase at Cornerstone in 2009. Now, named one of the “Top 100 Bands You Need to Know in 2010” by Alternative Press Magazine, CLOSE YOUR EYES is sure to continue an already stirring buzz in anticipation of their latest release, We Will Overcome.

HM contributing writer Danielle Martin talks with Seaway vocalist Ryan Locke about the band's new era, how they formed their sound for 2020, and why Harry Styles belongs in their lives.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
