It has been more than three years since Aaron Gillespie’s last worship album came out, and since that time, the former Underoath drummer released another album as The Almost and got an extended gig as Paramore’s touring drummer. Now, Gillespie is preparing to release his second worship album through BEC Recordings. The album, Grace Through The Wandering, drops Feb. 3. Watch the lyric video for the album’s first single.

As a piece of trivia, Grace Through The Wandering was recorded in makeshift studios in hotel rooms while Gillespie was touring the world with Paramore. To recreate the acoustics of a vocal booth in a hotel, Paramore guitarist Justin York suggested they record the vocals by putting the microphone under a hotel comforter. Find out how well the makeshift studios worked on the album when it comes out early next year!

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

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.
