Southbound Fearing to Release Bad Dreams And Melodies October 9th, Lead Single Rising Up Christian Rock Charts

Christian rockers Southbound Fearing is set to release their sophomore effort, entitledBad Dreams And Melodies, on Red Cord Records October 9th. The album will be the follow-up to last year’s debut self-titled full length which featured two top twenty singles on the Billboard Christian Rock radio chart in the form of “Irresistible” (peaked at #6) and “Fighting Words” (peaked at #9). The success of the self-titled album and those two singles has carried over to Bad Dreams And Melodies’ lead single “The Love That Never Fails.” The track serves as the album opener and currently sits at #12 on the Billboard Christian Rock radio chart but continues to rise up the charts.
