|Los Angeles-based pop-rock outfit Letters Burning have teamed up with fashion brand YMI for the Rock Your School Tour which will see the band perform free shows at 40 Southern California high schools. The tour was conceived as a way to take free music, performing arts awareness and positive creative expression to teenagers while many schools see the budgets for their arts programs cut. The 60-day tour kicked off on 2/15, and each performance will take place during the school’s lunch hour, followed by a meet-and-greet and giveaways from YMI and Alternative Press.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.Full Feature More from Guardian
