Oh, but they do. They do want to dance.

Dream Records’ Loftland released their debut album on Tuesday, and their front man, Dominic Gibbs, wanted to check in with HM readers.

Hey guys! We’re so proud to present our first ever full-length album, I Don’t Want To Dance, from Dream Records! Don’t let the title fool you. We spent the last year and a half cooking up a batch of the most sticky sweet dance songs that we knew how to make. Come to a gig and show us some of your pit moves when you’re taking a break from the metal!

The album is available now.

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.
