Collaborations and band member-sharing.  There is a whole lot of both happening these days in Christian Rock, and a lot of it happened at the Kingdom Come Festival this month.  Matt Baird showed up on stage to do It’s OK with Death Therapy; Marco Pera (of Amongst The Giants) played bass for Disciple; Chaotic Resemblance’s drummer John Jakway banged the skins in an emergency for Spoken; and any time you have multiple Rockfest Records bands present, the Rockfest fam comes together.  Here is a snippet of  Amongst The Giants in concert, with help from Zahna and The Persuaded:  https://www.facebook.com/TheBlastFM/videos/732599020904851/

Disciple Rocked The Stage Saturday Night At Kingdom Come

Disciple put on another amazing show, as they were the headliner Saturday night at the Kingdom Come Festival near Greentown, Indiana.  There was an equipment malfunction early in the show, within the first 2 or 3 songs.  Undaunted, lead singer Kevin Young did his ministry talk early in the show and encouraged people to stop being “hating keyboard warriors” online.   He also revealed that the whole band works out together, and that as he is filling time, he is sharing things he doesn’t normally share with the audience.   He also mentioned that they haven’t played a live show in person “Since October.  That was another great band,” Kevin Young said.  “Yes, it was!” our own Colin Cruz blurted out loudly without hesitation (man do we miss that band…yep, we still play them).  Once the gear was back in working order, Disciple blasted through songs old and new  Invisible, Dear X, Dead Militia, Cuff The Criminal, Panic Room were among those…as was their recently arranged medley of old Disciple hits.   Here is the video of them performing Radical (you’ll see Marco Pera of Amongst The Giants playing bass…he does that for them whenever possible):  https://www.facebook.com/TheBlastFM/videos/1393926340997759/

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.
