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.


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.
