Mat Kearney is back on the road as the main support for Train this summer, following almost a year of non-stop touring in support of his latest full-length Young Love – out now on Aware/Universal Republic. The tour kicks off July 26th inCharlotte, NC and includes stops at New York’s Central Park Summerstage on August 27th and 28th and LA’s Nokia Live on September 29th before wrapping in Phoenix on September 30th.

Mat’s soulful hip-hop infused pop propelled him to #4 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Top Digital Albums Chart, and #1 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart where he remained for a week straight upon the release of Young Love last August.  Since then, Mat has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live and has recently been featured music on Awake, The Biggest Loser and Ready For Love.

This month, the label will take Mat’s third single from Young Love, “Sooner or Later” to commercial radio.  The song was previously featured in Google’s Zeitgeist 2011 Year End Wrap up video and served as the soundtrack for the year’s greatest moments.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

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.
