Crust punk outfit Saul of Tarsus is premiering the song “No Treasure” from their most recent album, Road to Damascus, today with HM Magazine. The Riverside, CA-based band, who also claim elements of grindcore and thrash in their musical influence, dropped the album on Nov. 20. We spoke with Anthony Marquez, guitarist for the band, about the song:

“The song is based on Matthew 6:19, James 4:14, the Book of Ecclesiastes, and a little bit of the Book of Proverbs. The message of the song is to focus on Jesus as opposed to being distracted by the material world. It is also a warning against selfishness, greed, idolatry, covetousness and the attacks of the enemy. Each chorus is slightly different, the first two describing the perishing world and the third pointing to Christ as the solution.”

If you dig the track, can pick up the new album from SkyBurnsBlack Records. The band, which formed in 2011, will be playing next on Jan. 16 at the House of Rebellion.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
