Capital Kings have got a brand new self-titled album out! They are a talented duo that specialise in blending pop, electronic dance and rap into a crazy mixbowl of music that make people kinda wanna mooooove. Yet their songs are thought-provoking and have solid substance in their foundations. Capital Kings are Jon White and Cole Walowac, who went to school together in Washington D.C.
The 10-track album features artists who are already familiar to us; TobyMac, Britt Nicole, Royal Tailor and Soul Glow Activatur (from Family Force 5). TobyMac is also the executive producer of their album.

Capital Kings will release their self-titled debut album on Gotee Records in a few short days and have released a new lyric video for the song "We Belong As One".
The album features collabs with Tobymac, Britt Nicole, Royal Tailor, and Soul Glow Activator from Family Force 5! Oh heck yes!
This week's Behind The Music segment on the Late Show showcases Christian recording artist, music producer, hip-hop/pop artist, singer-songwriter, and author, TobyMac. Phew, He's a little bit talented! Listen to our podcast to find out more about his work and what motivates him.
TobyMac's 5th studio album 'Eye On It' is huge! It hit number 1 on the billboard charts in the US in the first week of release, the first single 'Mewithoutyou' has stormed Life FM's countdown! More info from TobyMacs website below.
Last week TobyMac made history by topping the mainstream charts in the States. It was the first time in almost 15 years that a Christian album made number one on the Billboard 200.
A few days ago we announced the line-up for this summer’s Parachute Festival.
And our album of the week on Life FM was from Justin Bieber.
On the Forum this Sunday we’re talking about music.
Is some music more ‘Christian’ than others? What about ‘worship’ music – how would you define that?
What do YOU listen to? What inspires and impacts you?
Listen below for the audio.
Tobymac's latest album Eye On It has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. This is the first time since 1997 a Christian artist has had the top of the list, and only the third time in history.
Nice work, sir!
A few bands have announced release dates for new albums later this year:
Bellarive's full length debut, The Heartbeat (featuring "Taste Of Eternity") will be out June 19.
P.O.D. will release Murdered Love on July 10 (alongside House Of Heroes dropping Cold Hard Want!!!)
July 17 will see Capital Lights drop Rhythm N Moves, their first new release in goodness-knows-how-long!!
And in August you can expect new albums from TobyMac, Tenth Avenue North, & Project 86 (pictured).
Any of these you excited for?
TobyMac has been busy in the studio recently working on his new album, and now it's got a title AND a release date! Eye On It will be out August 28, with the first single (which I'm guessing will be "Me Without You") hitting iTunes early June.
It will be his fifth studio album and there is no sign of this guy slowing down!!
