The Color Morale have kept themselves busy this year. Beyond releasing their anticipated album Hold On Pain Ends, the band has launched Live Through One, an online resource to spread hope and suicide awareness in order to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. Find out more about the band’s mission in their new behind-the-scenes video of their song “Prey for Me.”

The band is currently in the middle of their US fall tour supporting We Came Romans and For Today. In October, they will head over to Europe with labelmates The Word Alive. If that wasn’t enough, they’ll be back in the US for a headlining tour until mid-December. They have also been added to Australia’s Soundwave Festival tour alongside Faith No More, Soundgarden, Lamb of God and about 40 other artists. No big deal.

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
