Detroit Christian Skacore band The Insyderz release their sixth studio album on 9/3/12 exclusively at insyderz.com

Dove Award winning band THE INSYDERZ began a Kickstarter campaign to fund “The Sinners Songbook” in early 2012. The success of the campaign lead to a recording session at Rust Belt Studios in Royal Oak, Michigan. Fans from all over the world contributed generously to the effort.

Reese Roper (FIVE IRON FRENZY) and Mojo (O.C. SUPERTONES) lend guest vocals to the title track. Reese Roper raves

“I was thinking about why I love the new album so much. It embraces the depravity
of man, the idea that we are all in this boat together… and it is sinking. And no matter how hard we try, we cannot ever save ourselves or each other. But then enters the lavish love of God and everything changes… This album is anthems of God’s grace, we declare together, in full voice, that we indeed need a Savior. Confident that we are not capable of any good on our own. We celebrate our dependence on God, day by day, minute by minute…and the best part: God is faithful.”

THE INSYDERZ will be playing their hometown record release party with FIVE IRON FRENZY at the Royal Oak Music Theatre (Royal Oak, MI http:// www.royaloakmusictheatre.com) on Friday, November 16, 2012

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.

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.
