Released last October, Vekora’s debut self-titled album has been bringing in ears, and today the band is offering up their song, “Alleviation,” for listening. The band — featuring Kurt Schmidt, Alexandra Wendt, Jesse Sprinkle and Brian Moore (left-to-right in that picture) — might ring some bells for long-time listeners; Sprinkle was a member of early Demon Hunter, Poor Old Lu and Dead Poetic. Related: The band’s fictitious holiday is tomorrow, and, in celebration, is offering their full-length album to everyone for only five bucks all day. (Side note: Sprinkle was also in Pacifico for a time, who just debuted their latest puppet-based music video with HM.)

In the mean time, enjoy the music and happy National Vekora Day.

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch.

As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
