Punk band One Bad Pig is reuniting to write and record their first new album in 25 years, and the band is turning to Kickstarter to get it off the ground. The band formed in 1985 in Austin, TX, performing at Cornerstone, having Johnny Cash guest vocal on their 1991 cover of “Man in Black,” and even receiving four Gospel Music Association nominations.

The band has hit their initial goal and is now working towards hitting their stretch goal to get the album printed on vinyl. Other rewards include video calls with the band, a copy of their 226-page book, t-shirts, drum heads signed by the band, and more.

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.
