SLEEPING GIANT Vocalist Tommy Green To Release Audio Book “Religio-cide” on September 27th through ain’t no grave records

TG_Regligiocide

As best put by Relevant Magazine, SLEEPING GIANT has been “rewriting the definition of what it means to be Christians in a metal band.”  Expressing their beliefs through their music, vocalist Tommy Green takes this a step further with the release of his audio book, Religio-cide on September 27th.  Green explains, “Within the last couple of years I started putting together a book designed for kids that would be at a Sleeping Giant show who may have an interest in a relationship with God, but not know where to go from there.”  Written in the form of a guide, the goal is to help encourage those who may be interested in God, but not necessarily in attending Church or being tagged as a ‘Christian’.

When on stage with SLEEPING GIANT , Green often speaks about his family and his own personal history involving abuse, divorce and brokenness among other things.  He knows firsthand how easily it is to feel disconnected, and uses his personal experiences to offer counsel.  In addition to providing guidance through his book and Sleeping Giant shows, Green is also the founder and pastor of Revolution Reality Ministries, a small Salt Lake City based group he shepherds when SLEEPING GIANT is not on tour.

The physical version of Religio-cide was self-published by Green and is currently available. On September 27th, the audio book will be available exclusively through Ain’t No Grave Records on iTunes for $7.99.

Green states, “I wrote Religio-cide for people like me. It’s very easy to get trapped inside religious stereotypes and I hope that this can encourage people to freely pursue a real, spiritual relationship with God and not get so caught up in ‘religion’.”

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.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
