Hollister, California-based metal/hardcore crossover Leaders have joined the Facedown family. Before going through a line-up and name change in 2011, Leaders shared the stage with Flyleaf, Blindside, and Brian “Head” Welch as ALLORNOTHING. Now, Leaders are storming onto the hardcore and metal scenes with their powerful debut album Now We Are Free. Comprised of 10 tracks engineered by Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios (As Blood Runs Black, All Shall Perish, In the Midst of Lions), Now We Are Free blends metal and hardcore influences seamlessly and is a must have album for fans of Hatebreed and Living Sacrifice.
Leaders will be taking their live show on the road and will be on tour for all of 2012. The band describes their live shows as “powerful, intimate, and real. With enough character and groove to the rhythm that it makes you want to move.” Now, they look forward to touring with a solid line-up and new music. “We love to give it our all when we play shows so that everyone can see the passion we have.”

Leaders will release Now We Are Free, their debut full length with Facedown Records on March 27, 2012, but you can hear the first single “Conviction” here: http://www.facebook.com/leadersmetal

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
