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.

The annual New Hampshire music festival, SoulFest, is starting this Wednesday, August 3rd, and will run four days, with over 125+ artists and speakers. CRR will be heading there on Thursday to cover the festival, but here is an overview of some artists we recommend checking out for each day of the festival.

Wednesday, August 3rd:

While Skillet and Sanctus Real headline the Revival Stage on Wednesday, a lot of action will also be going on at the Inside Out Stage and Mercy St. Cafe. On the Inside Out stage will be one of the festival's two worship days, which will include Jason Upton, Ascend The Hill, The City Harmonic, and Abel to name a few. The Mercy St. Cafe will be hosting a good amount of heavier bands, including To Speak of Wolves and Auburn, and playing a late set to close the night, at 11:45, will be the one and only Showbread.

Thursday, August 4th:

Chris Tomlin and Petra will be some of the big Revival Stage artists on Thursday, and Ascend The Hill will be playing their last set of the festival on the stage as well. The Inside Out stage will have a big lineup, with headlining sets from Red, Project 86, and the newly reunited Life In Your Way, who will be accompanied by young, post-hardcore band Exiting The Fall, The Frozen Ocean (Life In Your Way's guitarist Dave Swanson), and Tooth & Nail's new rockers, Icon For Hire. Headlining the hip-hop night on the Deeper Well stage will be John Reuben, and to close out the night at the Mercy St. Cafe will be a special Blood:Water Mission benefit show from Jars of Clay.

Friday, August 5th:

Third Day and Jars of Clay will be playing Friday night at the Revival Stage, and the Inside Out stage will be headlined by Emery. A lot of other Tooth & Nail Records' artists will also be playing on Friday, mainly on the Inside Out stage, including The Letter Black, Write This Down, Hyland, and at the Mercy St. Cafe, Nine Lashes. Celtic punk rockers Flatfoot 56 will also be playing, along with Brian "Head" Welch, formerly of Korn.

Saturday, August 6th:

Saturday will conclude the festival, with largely anticipated sets on the Revival Stage from Switchfoot and The Almost. The Almost's frontman, Aaron Gillespie, will also be playing an acoustic set on the Mountain Top, alongside Derek Webb and Kevin Max. The Inside Out stage will have some notable speakers during the day, such as Brian Welch and Come&Live!'s Chad Johnson. Also from C&L! will be The Ember Days, playing sets at both the Inside Out and Deeper Well stages.
