Christian rock band SONSOFDAY has announced plans to release their sophomore album Autumn Heart (1964 Records) on October 12th. The band is also giving fans a unique opportunity to be a part of the new album. Anyone that pre-orders Autumn Heart prior to September 8, 2009, will have their name and photo included in the album artwork booklet, and they will receive an autographed copy of the album before it’s released.

The band spent eight months in a Vancouver, Washington studio recording the follow-up to their successful debut album. Produced, engineered and mixed by Vitaliy Belonozhko, Autumn Heart will feature 12 new tracks, including road-tested fan favorite “Revolution” and a cover of the timeless classic “People Get Ready.”

Autumn Heart is about the changes we go through in life, although at times it may seem like the sunny days are behind us and the cold is starting to grab a hold of our heart,” explains lead vocalist/guitarist Vlad Belonozhko. “When our inspiration runs dry and our true colors come out. And all of our hopes and dreams come falling to the ground. We must not give up and keep moving forward. There is hope, for the spring always follows even the coldest of winters.”

The Belonozhko brothers – Vlad, Roman and Scott – immigrated from the Ukraine to the United States in 1992 in pursuit of a better life and religious freedom, which Ukraine was only just beginning to experience after the fall of Communism. The brothers formed SONSOFDAY in 2005, and soon after they were in the studio recording their debut album Fragile People (Red Hammer Records) which released in late 2007.

Earlier this year, SONSOFDAY took home a Gospel Music Channel Video Award for Best Pop Video of the Year for “This Place” from their debut album. The band has toured relentlessly, including major festivals such as Creation West ’09 (main stage). SONSOFDAY took first place in the 2009 National Talent Search (Regional), sponsored by Word Records and the Christian Festival Association. The band will advance to Nashville for the finals on September 20th.

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."

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.
