Seattle, Wash. (August 16, 2010) – Save the City Records is excited to announce the signing of critically acclaimed Christian rock band Circleslide, whose debut project landed on Christianity Today’s 2006 Year in Review “Best of” round-up, among other accolades.
Since then, the band — frontman Gabe Martinez, lead guitarist Jonathan DeAnda, bassist Eric Vickers and drummer Lee Yoder — has toured unceasingly, refining their modern rock ruminations, while keeping their ministry agenda firmly in focus. In addition to shows with Newsboys, TobyMac, MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Salvador, Jaci Velasquez and Downhere, the Nashville-based band has headlined everything from clubs to churches and colleges, with plenty of youth camps and outreach events in between — all of which build off the group’s Youth With A Mission beginnings.
“Throughout all the traveling, our goal has always been to make music that could inspire people, touch hearts and lead them to Christ,” says front man Gabe Martinez. “We’re so excited to be a part of the Save the City Records family, because we know that is where their hearts are as well.”
“We are proud to partner with Circleslide, one of the highest-caliber and hardest-working bands in Christian music today,” comments Derek Hoiem, President of Save the City Records. “They are full of energy, excellence and passion, as their many fans can attest. Their new album showcases their versatility and artistry, and they are a fantastic addition to our artist family.”
Circleslide is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their upcoming project, Echoes of the Light, set to release in October.
