Man, we sure miss Hope For The Dying here at The Implosion. We play a lot of cuts off of their albums Dissimulation and Aletheia, and we milked their 2016 project (called Legacy) of singles for 5 years, hoping for another new album. But that never came, and we have been wondering what has become of the band, so we reached out to Shannon Quiggle over at Facedown Records and he says:
Josh Ditto and James Houseman started a successful tech company, Jack Daniels just built a brand new recording studio (he’s been engineering records for years now), and I’m not sure what Brendan is doing.
Fans have asked the question on their socials as to whether they are going to put out any new albums, only to be met with crickets on the pages we’ve looked at. Let’s hope…that they do record more albums!

We’ve been playing singles from HolyName, a band fronted by former Sleeping Giant vocalist Tommy Green on https://TheBlast.FM and on The Implosion for 7 weeks now, and today, Facedown Records announces they’ve signed the band to their record label. Here’s what Facedown has to say about it:
HolyName founders Tommy Green (Sleeping Giant) and Joe Holt enlist the services of top musicians Brook Reeves (Impending Doom), Matthew Weir, Aaron Craner, and producer Ryan Leitru (For Today).
Long-time label member and friend Tommy Green: “HolyName is so excited to partner with Facedown Records. After working together on Sleeping Giant, the experience, relationship, and friendship personally just made this the best decision. We truly hope that our efforts and our sound will add to the history and tradition of this awesome independent label, and encourage new kids coming up and all you old hxc kids as well. We are looking forward to playing our part in continuing the legacy of Praise into this next season. PreachCore Lives! In honor of the HolyName.”

Christian Horror Punk. Yeah. That’s a thing. And it is done very well by the band Grave Robber. The costumes are shocking. Zombies!!! Aaahh!!! The music is shocking. The message…in the lyrics and in the preaching from the frontman…is on-point, full of Biblical wisdom. The man behind this mask is Shawn Browning. Lead singer, pastor, realtor, and the head of Rottweiler Records, label home of Grave Robber, XIII Minutes, and several other bands we play on The Implosion. We have a video clip from their concert on The Implosion’s Facebook page:

Lee Humerian’s reign as drummer of Phinehas has lasted from 2008 until the early days of 2017. Those days come to an end after Saturday night’s concert in Fullerton, California. Lee and his wife Katie are called to the eastern European country of Ukraine to work in youth missions. The kids over there will enjoy seeing his hair flying and learn about drumming. Music is involved in this mission. You can read about it more here: https://katieandleehumerian.com/ Humerian will track the drums on the next Phinehas record. Lee, you will be missed by The Blast and The Implosion!
