Dynasty drummer Nick Sturz has been busy this year with his bands Dynasty, Fragments and Hearts Like Lions. All three bands are different in style. Now, Sturz is concentrating on Hearts Like Lions, a three-piece worship band in the same vein as As Cities Burn, Circa Survive, and Mutemath.

Founded in 2011 the alternative/indie rock band from Long Beach, CA with a music video and few singles under their belt, the band will be heading to Sacramento, CA  in January 2014 to record their debut 6-song EP with Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider the Thief  and labels such as Triple Crown Records and Come&Live!).

They are using the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter to get fans to help fund this new EP. The band has some very reasonable perks including $5 for a digital copy of the EP, $15 for the physical CD, $35 for a t-shirt and the CD, $50 for an exclusive five-panel camp hat, $75 for a signed skateboard from the band or vinyl with digital download, plus many more options.

If you are feel the Christmas spirit please consider giving to this amazing band. If you live in California, you can catch Hearts Like Lions opening for Levi The Poet, and Least of These.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
