Tuscaloosa, Alabama brings us Gideon, an aggressive, melodic hardcore band with an already impressive repertoire.  Well-placed gang vocals and a powerful front man set Gideon apart from many of their peers, while the band as a whole, whose members have been playing together only since 2008, come off sounding like seasoned pros.  Gideon have self-released two EPs since 2008 with the help of Brian Hood at 456 Recordings, and have been committed to playing as many shows as possible, turning to full time touring after all members of the band had graduated from high school.  Now they’re preparing to recording their debut for Strike First Records with Brian Hood this winter.  Look for the new full length Gideon album to be out in February 2011.

Seaway's Big Fall

Planned for the summer, 'Big Vibe' was moved to the Fall as COVID swept the nation. It turns out, the vibes were exactly the breath of fresh air we needed.

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."
