Nashville-based Veridia reached No. 1 on the Billboard U.S. Christian Rock Chart for the second time with their latest single, “Pretty Lies.” (Their first single to do it was “We are the Brave.”) Today, the band released a music video for the track, a song which features Memphis May Fire frontman Matty Mullins.

The video, directed by Matt DeLisi, expounds on the theme of the song, an impossible chase for perfection. Vocalist Deena Jakoub spoke via press release about the track:

“The idea is that we waste too much time comparing ourselves to other people and to these images of people that aren’t real.”

The band’s next scheduled appearance is on April 9 at Salvation Fest.

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.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
