Pure Flix Entertainment (The Wager, Sarah’s Choice) is happy to announce the release of THE IMPOSTER on DVD, February 23, 2010.  THE IMPOSTER is distributed through EMI/CMG Distribution to CBA retail outlets nationwide.

Starring Kevin Max (dc Talk), Jeff Deyo (formerly of Sonicflood), and Kerry Livgren (Kansas, AD), THE IMPOSTER tells the story of a popular Christian rock band, Grand Design, whose lead singer, Johnny C (Max), is spiraling out of control.  After his wife and band mates discover his secret life offstage, Johnny C’s life begins to fall apart. Coached by his mentor Proff (Livgren) and a crazy homeless man Tom Wright (World Trade Center, Barbershop), he begins a journey back home to rebuild what is left of his family and home life.

Written and directed by Daniel Millican, THE IMPOSTER was a story that needed to be told.  “This movie was made for the church,” explains Millican.  “I find the closer I pull to Jesus, slowly the masks come off and masquerades end.  Hopefully this movie will help viewers choose to find their identity in Jesus.”

THE IMPOSTER’s story of redemption has struck a chord already in early reviews.

Tollbooth.org The Imposter shines in showing personal issues also exists in the Christian world and not all attempts to reclaim faith by the fallen have a happy ending. The overall message is truthful and grounded in reality – faith saves and provides for an abundant live if you work at your faith and your lifestyle. Also rising above the norm for a current period Christian film is the acting and soundtrack. The Imposter is worth seeing for these reasons and for the message it successfully provides.

Christian Music Zine – Final assessment – Thumbs Up!

Christian Cinema – 4 out of 5 stars

Dove Foundation – It’s truly a faith-based story about making correct choices in life, recovery and redemption with valuable lesson for all.  Dove Foundation Approved

The DVD, which includes bonus featurettes including “Unmasking The Characters”, Full Music Videos of “Believe (In An Act)”, “Empty”, “Carry On Wayward Son”, and Study Guide Scenes will be available at all major Christian stores on February 23, 2010.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
