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 past few years of the music industry have seen a rather vast emergence of independent music. Behind the decisions of the largely increasing independent artists lies a very empowering, vital tool; Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a site that allows artists to raise support for new albums, music videos, transportation, etc., and with each tier of donation, the fan can get a unique reward in return. In most cases, with new albums that need funding, Kickstarter serves as a pre-order platform, with rewards ranging from advanced downloads to autographed posters and limited edition, one of a kind merch. Using Kickstarter does come with a risk however: it is an all or nothing cause, meaning if the band doesn't raise their specified goal by a specific date, the artist doesn't make a penny, and those who pledged are not charged. Right now, a collection of band's that we've covered, and a few we haven't, are in the process of running Kickstarters, and they are in need of all the support they can get.

Showbread - Cancer: Everyone's favorite raw rockers are in the process of writing their upcoming album Cancer, and are raising money to release the album as a 100% free album download through Come&Live!, along with a feature film to accompany the release.

The Glorious Unseen - Lovesick: After a brief hiatus, indie worship band The Glorious Unseen will be recording and releasing their first new album in three years, without their former label, BEC Recordings. The album is titled Lovesick and has a tentative September 2012 release.

The OC Supertones - New Album: Like their other ska counterparts Five Iron Frenzy and The Insyderz, who reunited and used Kickstarter over the past year, The OC Supertones are taking a try at it, and are in the process of funding their first new album in seven years. Also, the band have released a new single titled "On The Downbeat," which can currently be downloaded for free at Noisetrade.

The Current - New Colors: One of the first bands we covered at CRR years ago were a great alternative rock band by the name of A Current Affair. Now, the band are back, simply named The Current, and are trying to reach their goal to release a new EP, with a new musical direction, named New Colors.

Silverline - New Album: Some may know Silverline from their high energy singles that have graced rock radio over the past three years, but the band are finally heading into the studio to record their first full length effort, after a series of EPs.

Spoken - New Album: Spoken are starting a new chapter of their career, with an apparent new direction, still fronted by Matt Baird. This will be their first new release in quite some time, and in only a day, the band have already raised over 60% of their needed goal.
