Facedown Records’ In the Midst of Lions are in the recording studio with Jamie King working on their Facedown debut The Heart of Man.  The band is excited to debut some of the new songs on this summer’s Scream the Prayer Tour.  ITMOL’s vocalist Matt Janssen says the band feels blessed to be able to record with Jamie adding “He’s very knowledgeable about everything he does and incredible at it.  The album is coming together well, we have already tracked drums and we’re about to start tracking guitar.”

When asked about the concept behind The Heart of Man, Janssen noted that it’s a 3 part concept: “The tendency of corruption in man’s heart, the consequence of that corruption, and the transformation man must go through with God to get his heart past the corruption.”
The Heart of Man makes its debut in August 2010.

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

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.
