Chapter 27   Former Tooth & Nail employee, Derek Tenbusch, in many ways is a similar to Brandon Ebel.  Both got their start as low level employees of a record label in southern California, because of their love for music, and thought it would be satisfying to help good art thrive. Eventually both became dissatisfied with the limited scope of those around them and sought to do more. Only Derek didn’t come from the indie-punk Christian scene, he worked for the corporate giant that controlled Tooth & Nail and with whom Brandon was having conflict....

Chapter 26   We have completed the ride to the top for the underground Christian punk and hardcore scene! Brandon, the label, and the artists, all had continued to grow and succeed for ten years, so now all we need to do is for everything to stay JUST as it is. Sounds easy - just don’t change anything. But we are all well acquainted with how the world works, and we  know the bad news in life is that nothing stays the same.   But perhaps that’s also the good news? It’s much easier for everyone to get along when the pie is growing, but as we move into the...

Chapter 25   It was just over one year ago when we began this series and covered the formation of Tooth & Nail at the tiniest little trickle of house shows, Calvary Chapels, and community centers organized by people like Billy Power followed by the rise of Cornerstone with John Herrin as the scene began to emerge. We've traveled quite a long way to get here, and today we reach the high watermark. It's a couple of decades of community building, talent compiling, large technological leaps, an exploding genre, a sharp and well oiled indie label, the perfect band (Underoath), at the...

Chapter 24 There is no question that Underoath is the biggest Christian heavy band of our scene. They completely broke the ceiling of what was assumed was possible beyond our scene, but what are all the factors that go into a landmark success story like that of Underoath? In a sense, this podcast so far is a list and account of many of those factors, or maybe it's just "They’re Only Chasing Safety" was directly born out of the Tooth & Nail culture. It was a perfect wave that had been built by thousands of people collaborating and supporting one another and as they grew and gained...

The Devil Wears Prada is the type of band that if you didn’t know any better, you might confuse them for a career-long Solid State artist, with good reason. They grew up as fans of the label, started a terrific band, did the  first decade and a half of their career on other labels, and now, at last, they are in fact a Solid State band. So there is plenty to discuss and listen to including their new and debut release on Solid State, "The Act" which came out in October.       SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: The Devil Wears Prada "Dez Moines" Norma Jean "Memphis Will...

Chapter 23.2 Not only was Josh Moore focused on his goal of becoming a musician from a very early age, but he was also recognizably good as an early teenager who eventually was noticed by older kids at his school who picked him up and made him their lead singer. Finishing high school by an alternative program, Josh is touring as Beloved's frontman at 18 years old, and by 21 that journey would be over and Josh would move in a different direction musically and personally.       SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Beloved "Aimless Endeavor" Strongarm “These Times That Try Men’s...

Chapter 23.1 Beloved’s 2003 debut, "Failure On," is a legendary album in the Solid State Records catalog. They had so much in their favor: made a flawless debut record, had an incredibly promising trajectory, had all been friends since childhood, and described themselves as family, were respected in the scene that was exploding and supportive, and were a priority to the best record label in the Christian heavy music space in the middle of its most powerful moment. Dusty Redmond gives his point of view as to how after just a few tours, and amid the anticipation of the entire scene for their...

Chapter 22 The guys in Emery grew up as far from punk and underground culture as you could get. Not until their twenties did they even find out about this whole scene. But they made up for lost time, and thanks to the foundations laid by the earlier bands, the explosion of this new scene, and the peak of the Tooth & Nail merger with EMI, Emery rode a wave of success and got used to it a little too quickly.   Emeryland:       SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Emery "Studying Politics" Pedro the Lion "Almost There" Further Seems Forever "Pictures of Shorelines" Neon...

With the departure of MxPx, the now commercially successful label was in need of another breakout success to sustain and continue to thrive. They found it in The O.C. Supertones, a true underdog story of a highly motivated, positive, and zealous group of guys that just happened to stumble into a genre and culture combination that seemed as if it was meant to be.
