The Newsboys have been on a roll over the past few years. Coming off the success of their "United" endeavor, the group released Stand last year. It was the first album that the group published in five years without the United label. The ten track outing proved to be another solid addition to their discography, seamlessly integrating their unique branding with accessible pop elements.

Confessions of a Traitor, often shortened to COAT, have set out to make a statement here in 2022 with their Facedown debut, Punishing Myself Before God Does. From the captivating artwork to the onslaught of riffs, thundering drums, empassioned vocals, and memorable lines that fans are sure to shout along with at live shows (such as "I can't do this on my own, weighed down by this heart of stone!", and the...
