Inspired by his live worship album Surrounded, Michael W. Smith hosted “A Night to Pray, Worship and Be Awakened” at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN last August. The energy, passion and unity of the event is captured as it happened on AWAKEN: The Surrounded Experience releasing Feb. 22 from Rocketown Records and The Fuel Music. The album features the multi-Platinum, three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist along with special guest CeCe Winans and the voices of 14,000 people that attended the evening.
“The night was beautiful. I remember thinking, ‘This is what Heaven will look like.’ A picture of unity, with all colors, ethnicities, denominations and ages joined together in worship,” shares Smith in a Parade Magazine exclusive. “I’m still hearing reports of lives changed, commitments deepened and people empowered in a new way. We may each have different stories, skin and songs, but we all share His same Spirit.”
“This live recording captures a gentle and uplifting spirit that blossoms into an anthem of exaltation,” says Parade’s Laura B. Whitmore regarding “Waymaker (feat. Vanessa Campagna & Madelyn Berry),” the first song from AWAKEN releasing today to digital retail and streaming outlets everywhere. “Vanessa Campagna and Madelyn Berry’s vocals soar above a choir of joyful voices and a rocking beat.”
You can actually watch the entire concert as it was originally broadcast by TBN at TBN.org/surroundedexperience.

Melbourne, Australia's Camp Cope are excited to announce their first full North America headlining tour. It kicks off in mid-April and sees the band playing some of their biggest shows on these shores to date including Brooklyn's Warsaw.
Camp Cope's 2018 critically acclaimed, ARIA-nominated sophomore full-length How to Socialise & Make Friends (Run For Cover Records) anchors on the cycles of life, loss and growth, resilience and those moments of finding and being yourself – with "The Opener" as the centrepiece. It celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are, and love felt towards friends; the women who shape you, and women working together to find strength in numbers.
The album received a slew of "Best of 2018" accolades including Brooklyn Vegan (#1 Best Album of 2018), Pitchfork (Best Rock Albums of 2018; ‘The Opener’ #24 Best Song of 2018), Billboard (#16 Best Rock Album of 2018), Bandcamp (#23 Best Albums of 2018), Stereogum (#41 Best Albums of 2018), The Guardian (Best Albums of 2018), and NPR (‘All Songs Considered’) Listeners Top 100 Albums of 2018).
Camp Cope is a band whose work far extends that which happens on stage, or in the recording studio. They use their resilience and strength to fight for the betterment for the music industry and related communities, and have proven that they aren’t afraid to put their heads on the chopping block to do so. Shortly after releasing their acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2016, Camp Cope launched the It Takes One campaign to say enough is enough: no more sexual and physical assault at shows. The widely-covered campaign continues to drive conversation around safe spaces at live music events, including the implementation of an ongoing safe spaces Hotline initiative at Laneway Festival in Australia.
They’re a band that takes action – they say no, they stand their ground, they take up space, and the audience can feel the power from those words. They unite in a space that is truly equal as they scream back every word, arms in the air, veins pulsating. You can feel it in the air. It doesn’t just feel like a show – it feels like an uprising.

Melodic and guitar driven, Super City is known for their hooky pop sound that blends heavy rock elements and danceability, all with coordinated band choreography that results in killer live performances. This Baltimore band expertly crafts guitar and synth earworms that thrive on the creative tension between bombastic rock and roll and stylized movements. Their structures and melodies leave no room for a dull track. At times soothing and inviting, at times posturing and timeless, Dan Ryan and Greg Wellham vocally guide this pop band into a new, heavy and beguiling territory that is both memorable and brash. Super City is Dan Ryan (lead vocals, guitar) Greg Wellham, (lead vocals guitar), Brian Brunsman (bass, vocals), Jon Birkholz (guitar, keys, vocals), and Ian Viera (drums & vocals). Super City has played with a variety of national acts, including Rubblebucket, White Denim, Vetiver, The Oh Hellos, and Cuddle Magic, as well as appeared at Artscape, Light City and other noteable festivals. They are very active in the Baltimore scene, performing in both traditional and DIY spaces, and their song “Artificial Sin” was one of 89.7 WTMD’s top played songs of 2016. Further, they are known for their active tour schedule, traveling up and down the east coast and hitting venues in the south, with an upcoming nationwide tour expanding their reach to the west coast in 2018.

"Love & Revelation" is the title track off Over the Rhine's first record in 5 years
Just added – WFPK!
Paste magazine writes, “Over the Rhine creates true confessional masterpieces that know neither border nor boundary” and included Bergquist and Detweiler in their list of 100 Best Living Songwriters.
Rolling Stone recently wrote, Over the Rhine is a band “with no sign of fatigue, whose moment has finally arrived.”
From Karin & Linford:
Our friend Joe Henry signs off at the end of his always beautiful letters with the words, love & revelation. It’s a blessing he offers, the hope being that we all still have the capacity to be surprised by something true and good.
The phrase, love & revelation, became important to us, and we asked Joe if we could borrow it for this record. He quickly agreed.
It’s so easy (and often feels necessary) to stand against something these days. To feel the need to resist some daily tide of deception and cruelty. It’s harder sometimes to remember and articulate what exactly it is that we are for.
When Karin started this song with her acoustic guitar, accompanied solely by the stripped down righteous parade laid down by drummer and percussionist, Jay Bellerose, sparks flew immediately. We quickly and intuitively agreed: this was all that was needed to see the song fully realized. So there it was: vocal, acoustic guitar and drums. It hadn’t been planned that way, and maybe that’s the point: When most everything gets stripped away, what remains?
Let the truth be revealed.
