Oh, Sleeper has announced a co-headlining tour with The Chariot for this October.  The Texas based band recently released their sophomore full-length Son Of The Morning of which Alternative Press wrote “The band are tighter than a duck’s ass and the songs range from simply good to damned awesome.”  Ultimate-Guitar.com echoed the sentiment saying the album “possesses a powerful yet melodic sound with shredding guitar work, a strong bass sound, and beastly drumming” and “I’d certainly buy it again if I lost it!”  The band is currently on tour as main support to Every Time I Die and Bring Me The Horizon which will run until October 11thSon Of The Morning is the follow up to the band’s 2007 debut When I Am God (Solid State Records) which scanned over 25,000 copies in the U.S.  The new album is a epic concept work, centered around nothing less than the final battle between the devil and God.  The band recently released a video trailer for the title track at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_5aL67HsVs&feature=channel


Previous accolades for the band include “Oh Sleeper have pieced together a smart metalcore album chock full of turbulent guitar progressions, headbanging breakdowns and melodies of epic proportions” OUTBURN.


“A ferocious brand of thunderous thrash, giving way to the types of catchy hooks and sweeping soundscapes you would never expect to find in the realm of Christian metalcore.” ALTERNATIVE PRESS.

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.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
