The latest Christian & mainstream music news, from NZ and around the world! You'll also be hearing a lot of this on the music news on the Late Show with George (and Dan) at 9.10pm weeknights and the new music pulse on Saturdays.
It's pretty sweet having bands that have been around for ages, and you go through all stages of life with them.
Trevor from Thousand Foot Krutch has announced on twitter that he's going to be a Dad this year!! Also Bianca from Group 1 Crew has announced that her and her husband are expecting their first baby in August too!
Check out the new music video for Dukes' song "Sweet". Very cool idea, to match the very coolness of the song.
Hopefully it won't be too long till an EP (or maybe even a full length album) is out from these guys - I'll keep you posted.
Head to paramore.net to stream Paramore's new song "Now" and (in the next couple of days) pre-order options for the international store will go live so you can get their new album first. Due April 9, and I'd expect most of the preorder options to come with an instant download of the new song.
All round good guy Derek Webb is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the release of his debut album 'She Must and Shall Go Free' by giving it away for nothing at noisetrade.com.
Also in this announcment video, he talks about a tour he's heading on in April/May and the release of a brand new album.
Paramore are set to release their self-titled album in April, and have posted the full track list online.
Also sit tight!! The brand new single "Now" is out on Tuesday with the new music video as well.
I say bring it on!

Huge congrats to Brad Dring of Rapture Ruckus and his wife Mel on the birth of little baby Roman William Dring!!! I really want this kid to become the new hype-man for Rapture Ruckus - or at least I want pictures of him in his Dad's awesome shades and blinged out cap.
Make it happen.
