A Martyr’s Oath just dropped a three song EP called “Ignorance is Woe” and all I can say is I’m intrigued. This is the first time hearing these genres mixed. I am a fan of spoken word tracks but this sermon jam over hardcore really mixes things up. Released through Raven Faith Records, these tracks mix Pat’s original music with sermon excerpts from Dr. Kent Hovind.
This is Pat’s first release in seven years and I think this release will definitely get people talking about him again. I look forward to see what he has in store for the future. These songs can be downloaded for free on Bandcamp or can be listened to on Youtube. Go check out his website for more information about what Pat and his band are all about!
Coming out of Mt. Vernon IL, As We Are, has been tearing up venues all across the country and encompassing the heart of a DIY band for the past 6 years. I had the opportunity to experience them live for the first time this past summer at the Kingdom Bound festival in NY as part of their Summer Tour. Their sound and live set took me back to 2007 when I was into bands such as Stellar Kart, MxPx, and Hawk Nelson. Fronted by Dale Vaughn, they are high energy and really know how to connect with the audience. The band recently signed to Raven Faith Records and re-released their self titled “As We Are” EP which includes songs such as “Promise Land” and “Wave Goodbye”. This EP and all their other music can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, and any other music streaming sites.
As We Are is starting 2019 off with a 2 month tour, the no name tour, and will be back in the Buffalo area on January 26th at Stamps the Bar. This headlining show also features the bands Tetelestai, Among the Wolves, Element 36, and Signs of a Slumbering Beast. Make sure to check out their website and social media sites below and check back for photos and video off their upcoming tour!
