Over the past few weeks I’ve revealed bits and pieces about my upcoming album during the #OCTMS Twitter Q&A sessions (tune in next Thursday, June 7 at 7pm EST to be a part of the action!).  I know not everyone has been able to attend so before I go any further I wanted to make sure you have all the details.

I am excited to tell you that my new album, The Midsummer Station, will be available everywhere on August 14, and available in the UK on September 17.  Special thanks to those of you who helped unlock the album art this past week.  If you still haven’t seen it, check it out below.  There are still a few news items I’ve got up my sleeves (like maybe some more tour dates this fall? or a new song featuring one of my favorite new artists?) so stay tuned.

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.
