Silent Planet and Fit For a King released a special dual single on April 9, trading vocalists on recent tracks from the bands. "Trilogy" by Silent Planet was reimagined with Fit For a King vocalist Ryan Kirby at the helm, while Garrett Russel put his vocal stamp on "Stockholm" by Fit For a King. The two Solid State bands have offered the joint singles in service of a greater cause, playfully calling their collaboration "Silent King."
Spoken, GFM (Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh) and Relent have announced that they are partnering for a special livestream concert on May 22.
Zao has released their first full length album in five years with The Crimson Corridor. The album was preceded by the release of the single "Transitions" earlier this week.
For David Zach of Remedy Drive, darkness is not a stranger. For seven years, he has transformed the work of his band to align with the work of justice– specifically, the work of freeing enslaved individuals around the world in partnership with The Exodus Road. Imago Amor is the third album centered on telling the stories he's encountered along the way. The songs capture a defiant hope that resonates both in the work of justice, and in the work of being human and whole in a broken, breaking world. I had the opportunity to catch up with David about what it means to be made in the image of love, how he's navigated the past year of human history, and what it means to practice hope as a sacrament.
Amorphous is an experience built on soaring melodies, powerful beats, clever lyrics, and a welcome return to a soundscape shimmering through electronic beds while staying rooted in guitars. Icon For Hire portrays a world where our wounds do not lie in opposition to our strength, suggesting that maybe the two are inextricably linked. Maybe in all the unformed, amorphous moments of our lives, there is grace for all the conflicting truths about ourselves to coexist.
