“HolyName is so excited to partner with Facedown Records. After working together on Sleeping Giant, the experience, relationship, and friendship personally just made this the best decision. We truly hope that our efforts and our sound will add to the history and tradition of this awesome independent label, and encourage new kids coming up and all you old hxc kids as well.
