TFK emergency surgery!

 

Thousand Foot Krutch frontman Trevor McNevan needed emergency surgery this week, which meant they had to cancel their appearance at Creation Northwest. Thankfully, it turned out to be a routine appendectomy and Trevor is recovering just fine. Please keep Trevor and his wife, Erin, in your prayers. They and the band are all excited about the new TFK album, "Welcome to the Masquerade", which comes out September 8th (YAY!) and they're looking forward to some awesome shows this fall (after Trevor's feeling better.)

And like my friend (and Air 1 news anchor) Jennifer James said, if you've ever seen a TFK show, you know Trevor REALLY needs to rest and recover before he can get to do all the stuff they do at shows!

Hawk Nelson is into shoes!

Hawk Nelson is into shoes, but not like girls are into shoes ... the HAWK guys are into TOMS shoes, because they donate one pair for every pair sold.  This video shows you why it's so important to them ... and how we can help get shoes to kids who desperately need them.

Oh, and you can also check out Hawks' new album, "Live Life Loud", due out September 22nd! They already have a couple of singles available on iTunes if you wanna check 'em out!

Mat Kearney is having a GREAT week so far! He's getting ready for his appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien this Wednesday, July 22nd. He's also preparing for his headlining tour this fall, plus, his latest single "Closer to Love" has recently been on VH1's top 20 countdown, and it's currently a top 10 Air 1 Hit!

Thanks to Air 1 promotions guy Paul for the "Conan" tip! :)

Fireflight on the attack!

 

I thought it was SO cool to read that Fireflight is asking for us to join them in a "spiritual battle". You don't hear this from bands often. But in a recent blog post, Fireflight's Justin said, 

"We really would appreciate your prayers. As we're writing a new record, the attacks on us have increased. It happened the last time, when we were writing Unbreakable..." Our prayer request is ... that you please pray for us as individuals ... and as a band that we [would not] be swayed from His plan for us. We know that [God] has us in this position to reach a lot of people, and we want each of the songs that make it to our new record covered in prayer so that God can continue to use us to get His message out, not our own."

If this is how their new album is starting out, with the band seeking God intensely, I can't wait to hear what God will do with this next Fireflight album!
