Wolves at the Gate release acoustic EP

Among the new albums out this week, is the acoustic Reprise EP from hardcore act Wolves At The Gate. 

I know hardcore screamo stuff isn't everyone's cup of tea (that's why we reserve it for the Underground show on Sunday nights) - but this EP serves to show the lyrical depth of the music, and I love it!



I first mentioned these guys a month ago, and still love them more and more. Comprised of two pairs of siblings — the Cryar sisters and Jones brothers, The Vespers have a few albums out - the latest Brothers & Sisters came out in February and is still on repeat in my car.



MUSIC VIDEO: Citizens & Saints - You Have Searched Me

Citizens & Saints have released a music video for the track "You Have Searched Me". If you head over to The Gospel Coalition, where the video premiered, you can download the song & chord chart for free and read an article based on the track from vocalist Zach Bolen.

In other news the band started a "Song Stories" series on their blog where they go deeper into the songs.

The Deluxe Edition of Join The Triumph is out now on iTunes.


Festival One: All Sons & Daughters

We're pretty stoked that All Sons & Daughters will be coming to NZ for the very first time next year!

From the Festival One website: "The name might not necessarily ring a bell with everyone but their soul-baring songs are sung in churches throughout the world. Songs like "Oh How I Need You" and "Great Are You Lord", while clocking up millions of views online, are connecting broken people inside and outside of the church with a living God."

Check their music out on Spotify or iTunes, or watch some of their stuff below.
