Rock News Roundup 8

Hey guys! We are back at it with another round of rock news, so let’s take a look!

I know many of us are probably hoping to attend a concert again soon and wondering when things can get back to normal. Many concerts and festivals have cancelled this year, however there are at least two that as of now are planning on still moving forward, Kingdom Come Festival and Chains Unchained Festival. Kingdom Come Festival has however changed their original dates, the new dates is July 10th and 11th. You can read more about that below. You can also watch the promoter of Chains Unchained talk more about their festival still being a go here.

We finally have an UPDATE on KCF 2020!! We had to wait for our veteran friends to have their monthly meeting. We hold…

Sarah and Mark Anthony of The Letter Black did a live video for their fans this past Friday. In the video they played their song “There Will Come a Day”. Afterwards they talked about a lot of different things, including different on stage concert experiences they have had. They ended the video by mentioning working in the studio on new music and how “it’s like a whole new genre…whaaat?” and “It’s cool, people!” If you want to keep updated on this and the band itself, you can sign up for their email at

The band Switchfoot shared a video live from their studio in hopes of reminding people that even in these desperate times “that fear is not the final word”. They also made mention that in these times “as a musician it’s time to go to work and to begin to sing songs that try and process all of this” and “that’s why we’re in the studio”. We are so thankful for the reminder and cannot wait to hear what they come up with in the near future!

Hey everyone, We just wanted to pop in and say we love you. The past week has been a pretty rough ride. From tornadoes, to coronavirus, to events being cancelled around the globe, it’s definitely felt like a dark season. But remember, fear is not the final word. Hope is still the anthem. Love is the movement. Stay strong and be kind to one another. We love you. – Jon, Tim, Chad, Drew & Jerome

Relent’s new single “Low” has now been released to the public, including a lyric video for the song! In the description of the video it says this,

“There is something very powerful about the words “I’m not ok.” Often because of keeping up appearances or the need to be strong for others, we fall under a false belief that everything’s supposed to be perfect and we should be exempt from life’s problems including suicidal thoughts, addiction, and pain of all kind. There will always be tough moments, but God will never leave us. In fact, He’s our strength in our weakest moments. Stay strong, keep your head up and remember it’s ok to not be ok. Download here:“.

You can also see their post about the re-release of their first record here, coming out May 22nd!

And last in our roundup is Skillet. Skillet announced just a few hours ago they have a sequel planned for their graphic novel! It will be called ‘Eden II: The Aftermath’! You can preorder a signed deluxe edition now.
