HM is happy to offer a free download for all our listeners courtesy of Kings and Daughters. The band recently recorded a cover of Brand New’s “Okay, I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t,” from the classic 2003 album, Deja Entendu.

Vocalist Carlos Salazar wrote in to the magazine to talk about the cover:

Trent and I had been toying around with the idea of covering a Brand New song for some time, just as a fun idea. They are one of our favorite bands on the planet; we’ve had several conversations about where we were in our lives when we first heard the band. We wanted to pick a song that would be fun to play with but still hold emotional depth. Brand New is amazing at that, so we could have picked any one of their songs, but this particular one tugs at our hearts just a bit more.

Stream it and download it, all for free! Put it on your “metal yoga” playlist.

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.
