Skillet Reimagines “Save Me”

Skillet has “reimagined” their song Save Me.  It’s an EDM remix, right?!  Nope.  It’s pop.  In fact, this could make it on to Christian Adult Contemporary radio, even. Have a listen here:

Random Hero Unboxes The Tension

Random Hero opens up the Tension #1 plaques

Random Hero’s song Tension, which enjoyed a long run in current rotation on both The Blast and The Blast Blender, enjoyed an 8-week run at number one on the Christian Music Weekly Christian Rock Radio chart (a USA radio airplay chart).

The First New Nine Lashes Song In Over 2 Years…Is Also Blasting

Nine Lashes is back with a vengeance!   They have a new song Now Blasting called Guilty Hands.

With Guilty Hands, Nine Lashes wanted to go back to its core:  in sound and in message.

With heavy tones, soaring melodies, and purposeful lyrics, they’re coming out of hiding with a bang.

Guilty Hands is a plea. Stop bearing the weight of your guilt. Stop running. Stop fighting. Come home.

The song is based on Luke 15:20-24, which is the happy ending of the prodigal son story.

New Lacey Sturm And Skillet Songs Are Blastin’

It’s been 18 months since we’ve had new music to Blast from former Flyleaf lead singer Lacey Sturm.  And she comes out screamin’ on The Decree like she did on I’m So Sick.  Sturm co-wrote The Decree with Korey Cooper of Skillet.   Speaking of Skillet, we just added a new tune from them, too:  Never Going Back.   We were far ahead of the curve in adding their current hit Save Me, as their record companies let almost half a year slip by before releasing a second Christian Rock radio single (that one) just a few weeks ago.  Both of these new songs will air during the Colin Cruz Radio Show, which is on weekdays from Noon-3 pm USA/Canada/Mexico Central Time.

Disciple To Perform Love Letter Lockdown Live Online Show Tomorrow, Saturday May 9th!

Yes!  Colin Cruz has been talking about this on his show…we need bands to do online concerts during this time of lockdown…and Disciple is doing one during this pause of the Love Letter Kill Shot Tour…they are doing an online, live Love Letter Lockdown Concert!  That is a perfect name, and very clever!  You can get a basic ticket to view the show for $20 plus minimal fees. This electric, full production concert happens on Saturday May 9th from 6 to 9 pm Eastern Time.  They are also doing an acoustic online show tonight, Friday May 8th.  Buying online concert tickets and band merchandise is a great way to support your favorite bands while they can’t tour.   For more details, go to:
