Sleeping Giant’s Finished People comes out Aug. 19, but today they’re streaming the newest track from the album, the eponymous “Finished People.” The track features Nathan of Xibalba and Joe from Advent. Vocalist Tommy Green spent some time detailing his thoughts about each song in the liner notes of the record, and for this song, he noted some of the following:

Thank you to my friends Nate from Xibalba and Joe from Advent for meeting me where I was at to sing on this song. I appreciate your respect and your friendship. I was a prisoner of so many many things in my mind, in my life. I was a slave and I was in chains and Jesus has set me free time after time. I am a finished one. For all of the prisoners, political, judicial, spiritual, physical, I want to fight for you, not against you. I am honored to know all of you. We are all finished people. For my brothers and sisters in the persecuted church in every restricted nation I love you and I pray for you.

The text reinforces the band’s message of “meeting people in their prisons,” including the literal ones.

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