Artist of the day: Advocate
Clearwater group Advocate blends a heavy, hardcore sound with Christian ideals. Sample lyric, from their song Exalt: "I will scream like it never ends / 'Cause You are worth more than anything / This is my praise, for you my King."
In February, the group released their debut EP, Trial and Error, which guitarist Danny Mills describes as "a Christian's constant struggle with sin." Mills is joined in the group by singer Aaron White, drummer Chris Costanza, bassist Caleb Flanigan and guitarist Adam Renfroe.
On Wednesday, Advocate will perform as part of a fundraiser for a mission trip to northern Africa by Shekinah Apedo. Other bands on the bill include Deviations; Author, Creator; I Am Dreamer; Redfield; Eliano; and And One For All. Tickets are $10; click here for details.
