Greetings from California. We are currently enjoying a day off in San Francisco before heading south and east. We wanted to send out a quick update because some very exciting things have evolved. We have added dates in Colorado Springs, Denver, Omaha,  Lawrence (KS), Huntsville (AL), Rochester (NY), Athens (GA), as well as a Chicago date with Five Iron Frenzy. We are beyond excited.
Keep in mind this will be the last national Destroy Nate Allen tour before we take a sabbatical from the road. I’ve updated our tour dates below.
Some dates were shifted so that we could play the big show with FIF, The Insyderz and Flatfoot 56 in Chicago on Nov 17th.
If you haven’t had a chance to hear our new record With Our Powers Combined you can download it for any price @ If you would prefer a full color digipak cd (complete with lyrics and chords), you can can pick it up over at
Back in June we recorded a few songs live (with full band) at the KPSU radio station in Portland. Turns out our episode is the most popular download in their archive  We’re blown away. Here is the link to download that episode for free:
We can’t wait to see everyone again. If you know someone in any of these town please encourage them to come to a show. Thanks for reading and for being awesome!

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
