Tooth & Nail/Virgin Records (EMI) rock band, The Almost, is gearing up for the Monster Monster tour beginning September 14th in Montgomery, AL through September 26th in Indianapolis, IN.  With the tour namesake from the band’s highly successful sophomore album, The Almost will bring along special guests: Chasen, House of Heroes and Between the Trees for the Compassion International sponsored tour.

“We are so excited and happy to go out and be a part of local communities,” shared Aaron Gillespie. “I believe that the heart of our community as Christians lies in the local church, and we as The Almost are excited to get out and meet everyone in their home town/homechurch setting. Let’s get excited!!”

In addition to their headline tour this fall, The Almost will be appearing in October on Switchfoot’s tour (dates and locations TBA). The Almost will also be performing at two high-profile festivals over the Labor Day weekend: Revelation Generation Festival (Sept. 4th) and Lifelight Festival (Sept. 5th).

Comrades 2020

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.
