Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Christian Rock Rocks caught up with Joel Piper, the drummer for Confide at Warped Tour to talk about their new album that released in May titled Recover.

Christian Rock Rocks (Brooks Ginnan): How has Warped Tour been going for you guys?
Joel Piper (Confide): Warped Tour has been going great! We're playing every day on the Skullcandy stage and that has been going well.

CRR: So you just released a new album in May. Can you tell me about how the process of making the album went and also the progression between it and your last album (Shout The Truth)?
Joel: Well, this our first album with the new lineup and we were all getting situated on it. The progression between albums would be that Shout The Truth was a lot more technical and harder to get into, where Recover has much more of a sound that people can get into, especially all our fans.

CRR: What are some of the lyrical themes behind Recover?
Joel: Recover talks about things in life such as a death in the family, divorce or breakups and how we get through them and essentially recover.

CRR: Do you personally consider Confide a Christian band?
Joel: All five of us are strong Christians and believe in one God, but don't really believe in the "Christian band" aspect. It's not like you call your mailman the "Christian mailman" or anything like that. Our faith certainly comes out in our music though.

CRR: Considering that, what role does your faith play in your music?
Joel: Our faith plays one of the biggest roles and does fill our lyrics with hope that there is a love even for the broken, which goes along with the theme of Recover.

CRR: How did Confide get signed to Tragic Hero?
Joel: We really just got a call with an offer to sign with them. We signed a three album deal, so after the next album, we will be looking for another label. It's certainly too early for anything to be set in stone about that though and also can't be announced any time soon.

CRR: What are your touring plans after Warped?
Joel: We'll be doing a tour with We Came As Romans and will be going to Japan with Pierce The Veil.

CRR: Anything else you would like to say to the fans?
Joel: Come check us out on the Skullcandy Stage on Warped all summer long! If you haven't yet, give our new record Recover a listen as well. Thanks!
