Cedarville, OH-based post-hardcore band Wolves at the Gate is preparing to release their sophomore album, VxV, through Solid State on June 10, but today we have their debut song, “Relief,” to tide us over.

Frontman and guitarist Steve Cobucci says the song “is not just about relief for the physical things of life, but far more importantly is the relief that is found in the fact that God offers a freedom from the wages of our sin.”

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.
