Sidewalk Prophet's New Album 'Something Different'

The album is here! Guitarist Ben McDonald says: 

"For those who know me... I'm driven, stubborn, very opinionated and even more so passionate. I love my job, and get to live my dream which is actually a lot more difficult and more responsibility then you might think. Our new record "Something Different" came out a few days ago...undoubtedly this is the record I feel like we've been put on this Earth to create."

Switchfoot announce new album for 2016

San Diego rock band Switchfoot will be working out plans for their 10th studio album, set to release in 2016.

Frontman Jon Foreman announced the band's new album from the stage while on Tour De Compadres (with Needtobreathe), and talked about it in more detail in an interview with

We're going to have our meetings, discussing what it'll look like. We've got so many songs! We've been kind of stockpiling songs over the last year or two. And writing. We're trying to approach this one completely different. I mean, again, we've had the privilege of making nine records. So for this record, you really want to find something--not just for other people to listen to--but for your own sake to celebrate the journey. We want to find something new.

You can read the full interview here, and don't forget that Jon Foreman is still releasing solo stuf from his Wonderlands project (cos he's got nothing but spare time).


Amanda Cook to release Solo Album

Brave New World is to be released 28th September. An album about getting rid of fear and anxiety, seems like a must listen for many of us. 

"For Cook, the journey to Brave New World began with her song, "You Make Me Brave," which became the anthemic title track to Bethel Music's Billboard Top 10-selling album released last year. The message and process of writing, recording and leading the song in worship, gave Cook the opportunity to explore what it is like to live in a world without anxiety, a world absent of fear in the presence of God's perfect love."
