Blessthefall has teamed up with Billboard to stream their entire upcoming record, Hollow Bodies, before its Aug. 20 release date.

There are a lot of “firsts” on Hollow Bodies. First time ever co-writing with other musicians, first time having guest vocalists (Jesse Barnett, Jake Luhrs, Lights), first time having live strings orchestrated to our music and definitely the first time having a piano solo. I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite song if you asked me to. After listening to it so many times every single song is it’s own beast and each song can truly stand alone. Vocalist Beau Bokan, via Billboard

Blessthefall will be heading out with August Burns Red, Defeater and Beartooth this Fall to support the release.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
