Karl Anderson (keyboards/bass/vocals), Chris James (guitar) and brothers, Douglas Elder (lead vocals/guitar) and Darren Elder (drums), otherwise known as The Wrecking teamed up with producer Dustin Burnett (Augustana, Newsboys, Throwing Gravity, Jimmy Needham) and mastering by Adam Ayan (Nirvana, Madonna, Foo Fighters, Carrie Underwood, The Rolling Stones), for the creation of So Much for Love. With 14 tracks that celebrate the purpose of struggle and the beauty of rising from brokenness, this album is sure to resonate with listeners.

The Wrecking is breaking all kinds of molds in the music industry with a strong mainstream and faith-based following. The band’s drummer, Darren Elder, shares, “After three years of full time touring, writing and recording we know exactly who we are now, and where we want to go. Maybe it’s because we have done this on our own, but it is really exciting to see that we now organically exist in both the mainstream and Christian markets.”

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

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.
