I Keep Falling

An Album By

The Way

Listen now

“I Keep Falling” will show you The Way. Punk influences peek out as the high-speed rock kicks into high gear from the first track. A youthful enthusiasm shows through in the energy of the music as well as the style of the lyrics.

Straight-forward rhythms, simple but solid guitar, and standard alternative rock vocals bring nothing new or innovative to the table but settle into a sound that fits nicely into the ear of a lover of rock.

Some of the songs feel like stepping into a forum discussion with topics like naturalism and relativism laid out like a theological response to a post from an opposing viewpoint. Others talk about the challenges of following God’s will, betrayal, and standing your ground.

You’ll need to be in the mood to hear about topics beyond what’s typically covered in music you’ll hear on the radio, but perhaps that alone is reason enough to check out The Way.

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.

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

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.
