Nine Lashes dropped their newest album, From Water to War, last year, but this summer you can see them live on the “Fearless Tour” 2014. The radio rock band from Alabama formed in 2006 and has been signed to Tooth and Nail Records since 2011. Nine Lashes toured before with Red and Thousand Foot Krutch and their heavy alternative rock sound is supported by smooth, melodic vocals.

“Fearless Tour,” which runs between June 20-29, will feature various artists, speakers, inflatable games, a beverage center and a 30-minute dramatic presentation of real life issues for youth (such as suicide, drug use and purity). Jason Dunn and Eleutheria will also be participating in this outreach event.

Becoming Comrades

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.

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.
