Facedown Records’ My Epic is heading out on tour with Oceana (Rise) to promote their current album Yet.
Yet is about the distance between that which has already been traveled, overcome, and discarded, and the journey still to come.  It is about the evidence, even now, of what will be.  It is about a G-d who is so brilliantly and blindingly big that our rational minds can only be left to cower at His depths.  He is so magnificent that we cannot yet look him in the eye and yet He desires to live within us.”

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.
