The Crucified: Back in Action

Jim Chaffin, former drummer of The Crucified, sat down with CMCentral recently to talk about the reasons for coming back together and what it was like to bring up the idea of actually touring again after all of these years.

Switchfoot's Approach More Hopeful on Hello Hurricane

Switchfoot takes an increasingly hopeful lyrical approach, inspired by the band’s work with Habitat for Humanity and perhaps even their artistic liberation. After the mildly darker nature of Oh! Gravity, it's a welcome return to form.

Kutless Brings Back Worship on It Is Well

It's interesting to note that for all their rock releases and the longevity of the Kutless name, it's a worship album from four years ago (Strong Tower) that still remains the BEC Recordings act’s best-selling album.

The Letter Black: Change Is Necessary

While the players are the same, The Letter Black—the band formerly known as Breaking the Silence—is armed with a new sound, a new album and a new label home. CMCentral recently sat down with Sarah Anthony to discuss.

Artistry Birthed from Pain in Forget and Not Slow Down

Some of the best artistry is birthed from our most painful moments. Matt Thiessen might be anxious to forget his experiences, but Forget and Not Slow Down will be an album that gladly lingers for quite some time.

Stage "Prairie" Lacks the Depth of Previous Incarnations

This week, I joined 2,000 others in witnessing the newest variation on this century old story: Little House on the Prairie, The Musical. An Ingalls tale without Michael Landon. A history book without a soul. This time, there were very few tears.

Love Is Back and on the Move

In pop news … after eight years away from the music scene, Jennifer Knapp is again writing, recording and playing a few select shows. Also, Leeland gets vocal about social justice on its third album, Love Is on the Move.

The Letter Black Hits Hard on Breaking the Silence

The Letter Black is the latest female-fronted rock outfit to come along. However, this band has a little more water under its bridge than most, having toured prior as Breaking the Silence, ironically the name of their debut EP.

Kutless: Returning to Their Roots

Despite their rock and roll prowess, Kutless is a worship band at heart. So that should help explain why the Portland band's 2005 release Strong Tower just went Gold and why the five-piece is now releasing a second worship effort.

Gwen Stacy Explodes Back with A Dialogue

Hardcore band Gwen Stacy explodes back onto the scene with A Dialogue, a fine collection of face-melters that let vocalist Geoff Jenkins scream his lungs out while drawing in some melodic moments as well.

Jaymes Reunion: The Waiting Game

For fans clamoring for anything new from Jaymes Reunion, good news awaits. It's been a year since The Fine EP dropped, but the second half of 2009 brings another EP and full-length release from the pop quartet.

Sidewalk Prophets Bring the Pop on These Simple Truths

Incredible pop sensibilities are Sidewalk Prophets’ hallmark throughout These Simple Truths, the band’s label debut. Think MercyMe mixed with Brandon Heath to get a good idea of the sounds involved—and the sales possibilities as well.

Relient K: Relient on No One Else

The blank slate facing Matt Thiessen wasn’t daunting in the slightest. Instead, the Relient K front man actually made “having fun” his only rule when it came to recording the band’s new album, Forget and Not Slow Down.

Leeland Stays Vertically Minded on Love Is on the Move

"It's just you and me, Jesus," sings Leeland Mooring on Leeland’s latest album, Love Is on the Move. The statement serves as a proper introduction to an incredibly vertical album—and fans shouldn't expect anything different.

Bethany Dillon: Married to Her Calling

Bethany Dillon bloomed early with an independent disc at 13 years of age. Now, at 21, she's married to Shane Barnard—of Shane and Shane fame—and is releasing her fourth proper studio album, Stop and Listen.

Pillar: Road Confessional

Though Pillar plays hardball on stage each night, front man Rob Beckley admits a typical day on tour consists of "sitting around 23 hours so you can play one." For inquiring minds, here’s what these rockers do during a "day in the life."

Diversity and Controversy Shake Up Stockholm Syndrome

While the incredibly candid lyrical expositions follow in Derek Webb’s signature style, anyone who approaches this project hoping for the folksy, organic instrumentation is bound to be disappointed—but pleasantly surprised nonetheless.

Leeland: Following Love

With a passionate purpose, a collection of stunning new and a desire to serve, Leeland models the pursuit of a love in constant motion and is taking dirty hands and a message to the world: Faith without works is dead.
