A note from False Idle:

Thanks again for great review and for putting False Idle in your Pick of the Litter. That’s really given them a nice buzz. We really appreciate it.

I am working to put together a compilation album featuring Christian punk and hardcore bands to raise money for the HXC Christian website (www.http://hxcchristian.com). Josh Lippy and the gang at HXC operate the website with funds out of their own pockets (no sponsors, no advertising), so Thumper Punk Records and Caustic Fallout have teamed up to raise money to help. The compilation will be available for digital download (entire album only, not by individual song) for only $5, and there will be a very limited edition CD that will include some cool artwork and other information about the HXC website. Bands participating include:

Side A (Punk, Oi! And Ska bands): False Idle, The WAY, UniSEF, The King’s Kids, Unshackled, True Liberty, Send Out Scuds, Destroy Nate Allen, FBS, The Rekoning, Grave Robber, Hanover Saints, Thee Imposters, Skamikaze!, The Hoax

Side B (Hardcore bands): Braveheart, In Sheperds Arms, Killing Years, A Hill to Die Upon, Gorilla Warfare, Carrying the Fire, Messengers, Divinity Theory, Debtor.

One more thing, The King’s Kids have joined TPR for their second album. They’re about 90% finished with the album, which we hope to release in the next few months.

A little blerb about it on my website to announce it. (www.thumperpunkrecords.com).

Yours in Christ,

Brian "Head" Welch

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
