Today the pop rock foursome, Hawk Nelson, premieres their debut single music video from forthcoming album LIVE LIFE LOUD on MySpace.com.  The video is currently playing via a link on the homepage under the music tab of the social networking founder (http://www.myspace.com/). Hawk Nelson will release LIVE LIFE LOUD on this Tuesday, September 22nd on BEC Recordings / Tooth & Nail Records.

The fun-filled sound that fans have come to know and love is perfectly evident on the debut single “Live Life Loud,” a sis-boom-bah opening anthem well suited to the band’s get-this-party-started attitude. The album, LIVE LIFE LOUD, strikes a wiser balance than ever between the group’s two core strengths: kicking out amped up jams and bringing social and spiritual depth to them. This fourth studio project features a wide range of co-writing colleagues–tobyMac, Matthew Gerrard, and Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch–also testifies to Hawk Nelson’s true artistic versatility.

Next week (September 24th), Hawk Nelson kicks off their release weekend with the opening night of Skillet’s “Alive and Awake” tour.  For dates that run through December 6th, visit Hawk Nelson’s MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/hawknelson), also be a part of the 30 Days of Hawk Nelson with  goodies each day of this month (http://www.hearitfirst.com/hawk30/), and don’t forget to be one of the 100,000+ fans on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/hawknelson).  Hawk Nelson can also be found on Twitter @hawknelson.

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