Rock band Disciple will be releasing their new album, Attack, on Sept. 23, marking the band’s first album in nearly two years, and their tenth studio album overall.

This record is the first recording featuring frontman, founding member and band leader Kevin Young’s newly formed line-up. The four new Disciple members are Josiah Prince (Philmont) and Andrew Stanton (I Am Empire) on guitars, Jason Wilkes (High Flight Society) on bass and vocals, and Joey West (After Edmund) on drums. Young comments on the new lineup:

They have the perfect combination of being great players and performers, and are ridiculously talented songwriters. One of my favorite things about these guys is that they have embraced where Disciple has been and love to play the classic songs for our fans, as well as have put every ounce of their souls into trying to take Disciple higher than we’ve ever been. I think our fans have embraced them for that in return.

The first track on Attack sets the tone for the record as Young explains:

I wanted to talk about Jesus loudly and without shame. That’s why ‘Radical’ is the first track and our first single. It sets the tone for what we want people to hear. We talk about Jesus openly at every show. We do an altar call. That is who we are and that is what Disciple is called to do, and we hope that people hear the new music and say ‘Yeah, now THAT’S Disciple!’

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