LIVING FIRE releases new album “JESUS RULES”

CD Pre-Orders Available Now

LivingFireAlbumCover

Transmitting the message of the Cross through punk rock with old school-styled adoration lyrics is LIVING FIRE’s objective. The Brazilian band was created in 2005 and in the beginning it was solely an evangelistic project, with no fixed line up.  The musicians participating in events were all invitees, except for the bass and vocals by Luis Medeiros, also bass player for the band Judas O Outro and founder of the project, who states: “In the beginning, it was just for fun. I wanted to record the album because at the beginning of my conversion I had no knowledge of any Punk / Hardcore Christian bands. I didn’t know that, even singing with my accent, the songs would have such an impact.”

In 2011, Luis was joined by Murillo Henrique Xavier and Wesley Farina Chumiski on guitar, and Michel Oliveira who produced the album and played drums.  The songs started to be recorded in July 2011, having as a highlight the opening track named JESUS IS NOT DEAD.  Two cover songs were added to the album: OLD RUGGED CROSS (a Christian music classic) and ONE WAY (maybe Hillsong United’s best known song).  The full song list is:

1.  JESUS IS NOT DEAD

2.  COME WITH US

3.  LOVE OF JESUS

4.  JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE US

5.  OLD RUGGED CROSS

6.  MISSION

7.  HE WILL COME AGAIN

8.  ENOUGH

9.  ONE WAY

10. THE GLORY OF THE LORD

11. REDEMPTION OF HIS LOVE

12. BOUNCING AROUND

13. I WANT YOU LORD

14. ADORE THE LORD

In January 2012, the band signed up with the SAVED RECORDS label, connecting with PIMENTAS DO REINO SHOP for the album’s digital distribution. In July 2012, LIVING FIRE signed up with THUMPER PUNK RECORDS, a label which helps artists record, produce and distribute music that reflects a positive, Christ-centered message.

With no other intent but to praise the Lord with overwhelming joy and energy, LIVING FIRE strives to adhere to Jesus’ commandments in Mark 16:15, thus transmitting GOD’s word to places where it would not be inserted through conventional means.  JESUS RULES is available for immediate download at http://thumperpunkrecords.bandcamp.com, and through iTunes and other digital retailers.  CD pre-orders are available through the THUMPER PUNK RECORDS webstore (http://thumperpunkrecords.storenvy.com) for shipment in early September.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

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.

Becoming Comrades

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. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
