Flyleaf’s new look is taking them to Pledge Music, a Kickstarterish, quasi-Christian place to raise money. One of the smaller but notable differences is that Pledge Music doesn’t show you how much the project needs; it only offers you the band’s percentage for the amount they need. Currently, they are at 19%.

Let’s do some math. The minimum bid is $10 (you get the record when it comes out and access to exclusive updates). As of writing, they’ve had 251 people pledge. Assuming all 251 bought the minimum bid of $10, they would be at $2,510. If we just assume this is equivalent to the aforementioned 19 percent, that means they’re going to need your help getting this album to right around $10,000 to get this album made.

They’ve got about a month and a half to make it happen.

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

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.
