We posted about Jesse Sprinkle’s new band, Vekora, earlier last month when they were known as The Resonance. They’ve since changed their name and are now pursuing their goal to record their debut album. You can jam their track, “Lapse,” below.

As Sprinkle says to HM:

It’s really great to be in a band that I love. Haven’t had that feeling for many years. Now, we have Derri Daugherty from The Choir engineering the album and Terry Taylor producing, which is the exact same team from the first Poor Old Lu album. I love it.

If you’re interested, check out the fundraiser on Kickstarter, or donate if your heart desires.

After canning the entire album in 2015, Righteous Vendetta is ready to release 'Not Dead Yet' and prove they're still thriving. We recently got to sit down with Ryan Hayes, vocalist of Righteous Vendetta, to discuss the band's upcoming album, life in the Mountain West, and how the pandemic has him venturing into country music songwriting.

The Blackened Blues

With Anberlin putting a hold on its career, two of its members – Christian McAlhaney and Deon Rexroat – weren't ready to put on hold on music as their careers. Now, their former side project – a "blackened blues" rock and roll outfit – has become their main gig.
