“Indeed, with Qu, Sherwood have transcended the overcrowded pop-rock scene in favor of greener pop pastures.” – 4/5

“…articulates the simplicity of summer wrapped around a catchy melody.” – 5/5

“Equal parts cohesive, stimulating and musically stunning…If this doesn’t turn some heads, the music industry is truly dead inside.”

“Make modern sunny pop music that owes a heavy California edge to bands like The Beach Boys.”

Qu is without a question the band’s most mature album to date and the result of nearly a year of work.  In July 2008 the five members of Sherwood – Mike Leibovich (keyboards), Dan Koch (guitars/vocals), Nate Henry (vocals/bass), David Provenzano (guitar/vocals) and Joe Greenetz (drums) – squirreled away in a rented apartment in Oakland, CA and dove head first into writing music.  Never having this kind of freedom to write, they devoted countless hours each day to crafting song after song, a process which Leibovich says “felt like we were testing our limits and abilities.”  They emerged 9 months later with 85 songs which they carefully narrowed down to 11 before heading into the studio with Wood.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
