North Texas pop-punk/punk band Dead Words have rereleased their full-length album, There Must Be Someone Out There, on their Bandcamp. The band was previously signed to Rottweiler Records before pursuing an independent venue to release the album. Vocalist Garrett Hallowell talked exclusively to HM and had the following to say about the album:

This record is the product of two years in Dallas, working and going to school and trying to figure out my life. It’s about finding yourself and realizing that sometimes being lost is okay.

Dead Words was featured in the September issue of HM.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
