This is the follow up single to their HUGE #1 single "Am I The Enemy"!
Story Behind the Song
There is a need for this song on today's radio stations. Christians are not immune to suicide. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus tells the story of a young man struggling with his chosen last day on this earth. You will hear the pain in his thoughts and contemplation and follow his footsteps through out the song. We intervene as the band during the bridge, winning over the young man encouraging him not to try so hard to be happy because the best things in life are free and by that we mean Salvation.
Please join us not only with the launching of this song but the video campaign that follows that will help start a new movement in young adults to be open about suicidal thoughts even in a Christian home.
The Awakening is a Christian/Pop-Alternative worship band formed out of Colorado Springs, Colorado in June 2012. The band was originally the backup musicians for singer/songwriter Brandan Bustamante. In June 2012, Brandan approached his current musicians about becoming a band.
After a short discussion and 4 or 5 days, The Awakening was born. Writing and recording their first full length record began in late 2012. "This Love I Know" is slated for a February 2013 release. The heart of the band is to lead people into worship everywhere they go; to have fun and go deep. The Awakening is Brandan Bustamante, Chris Howe, Jeremy Musser and Nick Mayer.
Many people ask where we got our name. We, as a band, see that God is awakening His church. The Awakening is the unity of people connected by God's love. We also believe God's love reaches everyone unconditionally.
Unfortunately, not everyone knows God's love. As we write and play music our desire is to see God be glorified and his love be represented to the best of our abilities.

ReRoute Music Group
FUE (pronounced few) is an alternative rock band from the Chicago land area. Their music blends the
power of modern alt with the intense, emotional vocals of lead singer/keyboardist Joanna Rutzky. The
band is rounded out with Isaac Flex on bass and brothers Tim and Aaron May on guitar and drums.
The name FUE is an alternate spelling of its homonym “few” and comes from Matthew 9:37 where Jesus is telling of the great multitudes who are waiting to hear the Good News. “We want to be among those counted worthy to help bring in the harvest that is ripe and waiting.” With their passionate and contagious sound, coupled with a heart for God and his children, FUE wants to take their music to as many people as possible.
Starting off as just a group of friends playing worship music together for their local church in June of 2008 and then soon after evolved into their own unique style of music by writing orignal songs. Their songs bulge with rock sounds and capture a variety of different dynamics through the vocals of Joanna Rutzky. The other band members included brothers Tim (Guitar), Ryan (Bass), Aaron May (Drums), and Abi Rutzky on backup vocals.
In 2009 FUE went to Vibehouse Studios in Rockford, IL where they recorded their first EP titled
\"Hallelujah\" with producer Jaben Pennell. The EP was then digitally released on November 24th, 2009 and
later released a hardcopy version of the EP on March 30th, 2010. Shortly there after they began to play
local shows for churches and a variety of coffee houses in the Chicagoland area.
In May of 2010 FUE returned to Vibehouse to record their second EP due out winter 2011. Abi Rutzky,
who had been singing background vocals for FUE when they first started, ended up leaving her role as a
vocalist to pursue her passion for photograpghy and art design. She continues to play a huge role in FUE
though as their primary photographer, designer (merch, website, album art, posters, etc.), singing
backup vocals in the studio, and much more. You can check out Abi\'s photography at her website
www.redwindowphotography.com. During that same time Ryan May left the band as well to pursue going
to school at Southern Illinois to study Aviation to reach his dream of becoming a pilot. Following these
events in the fall of 2010 Isaac Flex joined FUE as their permanent bass player. From the start Isaac
contributed a lot to the music and fit right in with the group.
On February 15th, 2011 FUE released their 2nd EP \"Sweet Obesession\" which includes 6 brand new
songs from the band. The EP shows the growth and maturity of the band\'s sound since the release of their
\"Hallelujah EP\" as well as the band\'s growth with producer Jaben Pennell.
Following \"Sweet Obession\" FUE will spend most of 2011 working on their 3rd project which is
shaping up to be their best work to date!
FUE has performed shows at Daniel’s Den, Awaken 2010, and The House Café. FUE’s 2010 festival
circuit has included performances at Malta Days Festival, Country Gospel Festival, Anonapalooza Family
Summerfest, and Praizapalooza. In 2011 FUE played their biggest show yet playing The Main Stage at
Cornerstone Festival 2011 after winning 6th place in the festival\'s New Band Showcase!
Singer/songwriter Zach Hardison has been performing and leading worship for over 14 years. His songwriting career began at the age of fifteen and won several local and state competitions. In 2008, Zach was selected by the Mountaire Gospel Talent Search as the Singer/Songwriter of the Year! He was also the runner up for Male Vocalist of the Year!
The Zach Hardison Band is in full swing with an amazing group of musicians that love God. The band includes Thomas Guglielmo (drums/vocals), Phyllis Patton (percussion), Josh Jones (bass), Ryan Mekkes (electric guitar/vocals).
Zach is inspired by the people in his life - a beautiful wife and awesome kids. His biggest inspiration is the God that freed him of his guilt and shame. The Lord gave him purpose.
The time is now ... for ZHB to release their debut album and and first single, "Miss You!"

Artist: Cash Hollistah Song: goRilla (Radio Edit Feat. Sean C. Johnson) CD: goRilla (Single) Genre: hiphop/chr/rhythmic Label:Independent Homepage
New music from Cash Hollistah!!
Cash Hollistah goRilla. (feat. Sean C. Johnson) Topspin for Topspin Productions
"To the average listener, the "goRilla." track may be nothing more than a song to dance or get hype to, but the track carries a spiritual significance for the believer when you go the past the production and into the content. "goRilla." is meant as a call-to-action for us to go-"realer", or "harder" in our faith. When sean says (on the hook) that we're "respcted 'mongst our peers, but we can't get no love around here. what we do?" We goRilla. Keep pressin' on, even harder. Be tenacious, like a gorilla. Stay true, even though you may get no love... fight that good fight of faith, 'til the end." - Cash Hollistah

Artist: PJ Bostic & The Time Machine Song: Crime CD: 3MS (Three Minute Song) Genre: rock/chr Label:Independent Homepage
IMPACTING ROCK & CHR RADIO NOW!! Featuring Former Drummer of GRAMMATRAIN & BLOODGOOD Paul Roraback!
ABOUT THE SONG "When I became a christian as a teenager it was the loneliest time of my life. The few friends I already had were very uncomfortable with my Christianity and distanced themselves from me. The Christians I met in the youth group were clearly doing fine with out me, being the outsider with my long hair and my rock music and all. The kids in my youth group began gossiping about me and making up stories about me that made me out to be quite a terrible person.
I began spinning between both worlds finding little solid ground in either. I couldn't find the footprints OR the sand - except when I was alone with my new found Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. This was the only time I felt peace. If it wasn't for God truly revealing himself to me I'm sure I would have slipped back in to the world forever. You wouldn't think one would experience this kind of thing as an adult but I see it everywhere. I have to remind myself to give those people the same kind of grace and patience I wish they would give me."
ABOUT PJ BOSTIC Formerly the drummer of Bloodgood and GrammatrainPaul Roraback changed his name to PJ Bostic to honor his grandfather's wishes and started a solo career doing what he's always wanted to do - write mainstream progressive rock. He performed all of the instruments on his first release, "Bullies at the Border" (minus a few guest appearances) and now fronts the band, "PJ Bostic and The Time Machine" for his second release "3MS" (Three minute song) to be released in May of 2013. The Time Machine features Danny Poole on drums and Rene Hererra on Bass.

Artist: Hollywood Heroes Song: You Lift Me Up CD: Eternity Genre: chr/AC Label:Independent Homepage
“You Lift Me Up ”
When the struggles and circumstances of life overwhelm us and threaten to sink our ship, we need a lift. YOU LIFT ME UP is a prayer to God asking for his help in navigating the course that is set before us, a reminder that it is God that orders our steps.
Bio : No one knows how much time they have to spend on this planet. With that in mind, we should spend our time doing the things we love the most. This is how the members of Hollywood Heroes believe they should live out their lives. For Jon, Mike, Matt and TJ life is filled with opportunities and openings to dream big and live out a message of hope and love in a world that could use a pick me up. Their music is filled with lyrics that are meant to inspire and encourage the people of this generation to refuse to just sit back and watch their lives pass them by. That idea of being a beacon of light in the darkness inspired the name Hollywood Heroes. It’s about an entertainer choosing to use their influence and resources to make the world a better place. It’s about choosing to be a hero because underneath our individual selfish desires there is a hero in all of us.
The four members of HH grew up in the small town of Three Hills, Alberta, Canada. The boys roots run deep in the community where their parents all went to school together and their grandparents were friends. Each one enjoyed the simple life of a small town, and each was drawn to music through different avenues. Playing worship music in Church and at Chapel was always a big part of their lives, and helped them to hone their individual skills. Soon the boys found themselves writing and composing their own music in basements and on laptops. It was all about posting their tunes on myspace for friends and family to check out. After High School everyone went their separate ways, some choosing school, while others traveled to places like Thailand, New Zealand and Europe.
During the summer of 2008, Jon and Mike had travelled to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territories of Canada. It was during this time they started working on music with a new sort of vibe. Combining influences of pop, rock, punk, and electronica they started what would become Hollywood Heroes. TJ soon became involved and by the end of the summer they had created two songs and continued to collaborate through the school year as all three went back to college.
At the end of the college semester in 2009 the members decided they wanted to pursue a career in music full time, and in August 2009 began to work on an album. It was at this time that Matt joined the band and became the fourth and latest member of Hollywood Heroes. The fall and winter of 2009 were spent rehearsing, writing, and playing shows. Mysteriously in 2010, Jon experienced the total loss of his voice. No one seems quite clear on the exact reasons, but by the summer of 2012, he was beginning to sing again. In the fall of 2012 Jon started the machine again, and began work on two new singles, which are nearing completion. The first single, entitled Shanghai Skyline is in the final stages of mixing.

A couple of years ago, Tony (our lead guitarist), was asked to explain how our band came into existence. His reply was “The band came to exist as the result of poor communication, bad decisions, hurt feelings, rebellion, love, caring, support, and a passion for God. (We) started sometime back in 1999 with many ups and downs along the way.” I could never succinctly surmise the last dozen years any better if I tried.
AwakenUs originated as a praise and worship band. In 2008, Holly (our lead vocalist) had a vision for an original song given to her. “Mirror” took form within the group; quickly followed by “Awaken”, our first single. The 11 tracks on the album “Reveal” came together through months of writing, rewriting, and recording in 2009 at Rundown Studios in Topeka, KS.
During this time, we also set up Reveal Ministries; a not-for-profit organization to promote God’s message of grace. To support our first album release, we performed various shows to so that people could hear our music.
Recently, we were in the creative process again. With a more polished sound, our new EP, "The Forgotten", has a release date of 1/29/2013.
I don't know if this is just a wasted breath, but thought I'd say it anyways and try.
These are the opening lyrics to EYESALVE's newest single "Start Over". The song comes from the newest maxi-single release. As a native of Rochester, New York, Eyesalve is unleashing its pop-infused rock sounds via Modern Ministry Records and Sony's online distribution.
17 years. 19 members. I'm all that's left. I am EYESALVE.
Perseverence is about the only word that describes this artist. As a music director at his local church for years, Bryan Price has emerged from the shadows to release his second album in as many years.
"After several years of being on tour with my rock/metal band, I decided to change my tune and my style," says Price. Even still, Eyesalve continues to meld guitar-driven rock with modern pop sounds.
Having been a session guitarist/vocalist for numerous major artists, Eyesalve has begun the daunting task of tackling the long road of pop music's ever-changing landscape.
For Price and for EYESALVE, it's a chance to start over.
