TOOTH & NAIL RECORDS’ NINE LASHES SET TO RELEASE DEBUT 2/14/12
WILL BE TOURING ON THE REDvolution TOUR
WORLD WE VIEW ALREADY RECEIVING MEDIA ACCLAIM
Tooth & Nail Records’ new band Nine Lashes is gearing up for their label debut, World We View, releasing on February 14.  This Alabama-reared band worked with producer Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, The Almost, Jeremy Camp, Hawk Nelson) crafting their national debut. Together, the team turned in a sophisticated blend of modern, alternative and indie rock, undercut by a slew of rhythmic influences, cutting edge beats and even an appearance from screamo legend Ryan Clark (of Demon Hunter fame) on “Our Darkest Day.”

“Rock has always been our musical centering, but we definitely wanted to showcase diversity on this record since we’ve matured as musicians since our demo days,” explains frontman Jeremy Dunn.

With the rock and diversity on this project, hope also exudes the album at every turn, thanks in part to members’ unwavering commitment to Christ. In fact, the group’s very moniker references the whip used to beat Jesus (cat of nine tails), while using Isaiah 53:5 to remember the wounds He suffered for humanity’s restoration. That grounding even inspired the album title World We View, which as Dunn so eloquently describes, furthers the group’s vision for impacting its listeners with positivity and truth.

“The more we travel and meet people, the more we find a lot of people with an incorrect view of God,” he shares. “So many people think He’s an angry and vindictive God who wants to punish them for everything, but the World We View is one where we draw close to God and strive to make His point of view our point of view. When we start to see the world the way God sees it, our vision won’t be blurred anymore.”

This album has already produced a No. 1 Rock single with “Anthem of the Lonely,” which was at the top for two weeks and in the Top 10 for more than six months. The debut is also garnering the attention of the media as JesusFreakHideout and NewReleaseTuesday both give their thumbs up to World We View before the album streets next month.

“If you are not familiar with the band’s work, think of a mix of Red and 12 Stones with a little TFK. Nine Lashes have easily released the best modern/hard rock album since Red’s Until We Have Faces early last year…”

“This ambitious album already promises to be one of the most solid rock debuts of the year. This album is an achievement that promises great things from the future for Nine Lashes, and could easily hold its own amidst rock heavy weights in both Christian and mainstream rock formats.”

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.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

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.
