Gungor Announce 'I Am Mountain' Bonus Releases

Gungor will release two new albums as subsidiaries to the critically acclaimed I Am Mountain on July 8th, with both featuring eight new bonus tracks.

The first of these two is the I Am Mountain Deluxe Album, which contains all of the original I Am Mountain release as well as the eight bonus tracks.

However, in the event that you have already bought the non-deluxe version of the album, I Am Mountain Bonus Material will also be available as a stand-alone purchase.

The bonus tracks are a mixture of live cuts, b-sides and remixes from a band that has been described as "one of music's most imaginative outfits" in their iTunes editorial.

Check out the Let It Go (Prince Fox Remix), which is available exclusively here on Spotify.

Jayraj Weighs In on Tim Lambesis Saga

Jayraj Unka from the Underground Show has been adding his two cents to the debate raging around former As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis, following recent comments Tim made relating to his faith and criminal charges.

In an article written for Parachute Music entitled 'Circle Pits and Hypocrites', Jayraj urges people - particularly former fans - to suppress their judgement of a man who is in such obvious need of help.

Jayraj writes: "Yes, he has done something wrong. He will do his time for this. He needs to deal with the consequences of his actions. But let's leave it at that. Let's not judge him anymore. Don't throw away his CDs or burn your T-Shirts. That's not going to help anyone. We should be praying for him. Praying that some amazing people gather around him and help him through this tough time."

The Tim Lambesis saga will be discussed further on The Forum at 9pm this Sunday night.
