Rock News Roundup 139

Hey rockers and welcome back to this week’s rock news roundup! Check below to see what your favorite rock artists are up to this week.

Switchfoot has a very unique music festival story to share. As someone who has had some crazy stories myself, it’s always things like this that make it all the more special. The band was able to safely perform in the morning as people were waiting to leave the cancelled festival because of the crazy weather conditions. Check out their post about that here! That’s a lot of mud but it looks like everyone had a blast!

Behold the Beloved announced a new single coming out on February 3rd called “Silver and Gold”. Check out a sneak peek from the single here and pre-save here! (Que a “I am so excited” GIF!)

Behold the Beloved chat about new album No Surrender - Rock News Roundup 97 Behold The Beloved

Bayless just released “Embers”. Embers is a short film based on their music video of their song “Ready. Aim“. If this doesn’t give you chills, I don’t know what will. I absolutely love the amazing poetry/imagery that this films shares. The dragon will never overcome! We know the ending, and it is with Jesus as the reigning King forevermore, amen! Check out the film below.

The newest Solid Rock Radio “Backstage with Mothership” segment comes on tonight at 8 PM EST and it will be featuring Zahna as the guest. Check it out on their website here and click listen live! If you miss it, you will be able to listen to it and other past episodes here.

August Burns Red dropped their newest single “Backfire”. Anyone who listens to them will not be surprised, but this song goes haaaard! Check out the music video for it below and get ready to have your face melted.

Living Scar‘s newest single “Wake Me Up” is out now! My favorite lyrics are “Why can’t I overcome this anxiety, When I know there’s peace in You in eternity?” I feel this song on a personal level, as I struggle with anxiety myself. Check it out below!

Decyfer Down released their new single “Cycles”. In my opinion it was well worth the wait to hear new music from them! Check it out below and then let them know what you think! 

My throwback song this week is “God’s Not a Secret” by the Newsboys (featuring TobyMac) off of the shine the hits album. Sidenote: even I (in all of my music writer wisdom lol) can be surprised as I just was when youtube searching this song. I had no idea there were two separate versions! The one below is what I grew up with, but the one here is the original version! But in either version, this song is important in the music community, or anywhere else for that matter. There are times where people behind the curtain will try to squash your outspokenness about Jesus or compromise your faith in some way. Don’t let them!

That ends this week’s rock news roundup. I hope you all have a great rest of your week and may God bless and keep you all!
