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.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
