Chapter 15 Today's episode is intended to give you an inside and personal perspective on Tooth & Nail, Brandon Ebel, and the music scene as the label grew into its 2000’s dominance. Anneka Winters was an accountant at Tooth & Nail Records from 1998 to 2004, but she was much more than just an accountant. She assisted and worked with Jim Worthen and also became Brandon's Personal Assistant, she lived in a communal house with other Tooth & Nail employees, and she was around through the biggest staff and culture change in the company, driven in part by the merger with EMI, the shift in genres, and the success of BEC Records.   Ad || Zip Recruiter: ziprecruiter.com/LABELED   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Underoath "When the Sun Sleeps" Roadside Monument "Oh So Fabled" Beloved "Death To Traitors" Underoath "It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door" mewithoutYou "Nice and Blue" Joy Electric "(I Am) Made From The Wire" Slow Coming Day "Captivated" The Dingees "Carry On With The Countdown"    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Wolves at the Gate is band that very much continues the tradition and follows in the sonic footsteps of Solid State Records and the era of Underoath, Beloved, Dead Poetic, and As Cities Burn; none of whom are currently making this particular style of music. The approach is being deep, heavy, brutal singing and screaming with a strong spiritual component that gives weight to the music. Steve Cobucci is the guitarist, writer, singer, and lyricist for the band along with screamer Ben Summers. Steve is a terrific musician and person whose ministry-driven approach to his art makes him fit nicely in the Tooth & Nail/Solid State world.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: The Blood Brothers "Cecilia and the Silhouette Saloon" mewithoutYou "January 1979" Dead Poetic "New Medicines" As Cities Burn "Thus from My Lips, By Yours, My Sin is Purged" Wolves at the Gate "A Voice in the Violence" Wolves at the Gate "Evil are the Kings" Wolves at the Gate "Eclipse"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Oh, Sleeper is a special band on the Solid State roster, and a truly unique metal band. They very much embody the DIY ethic and artistic zone of the Christian punk/hardcore scene, but the members didn't come up as Tooth & Nail punk and hardcore kids like many guests on this show. Frontman Micah Kinard explains on this Labeled special that they come more from the mainstream mall metal and nu metal scene until he discovered our culture beginning with Norma Jean. We also cover in detail Oh, Sleepers new album, Bloodied/Unbowed and get a direct look into the meaning, message, and personal drama behind this record.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Oh, Sleeper "Fissure" mewithoutYou "January 1979" Norma Jean "Memphis Will Be Laid to Waste" Blindside "Pitiful" Oh, Sleeper "Two Ships" Oh, Sleeper "Island"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store

Chapter 14 Today we continue on our early 2000’s journey with the very important and pivotal Anberlin (Stephen Christian).  I refer to Anberlin as pivotal, because they began as a pop punk band in the vein of late 90's Tooth & Nail, but made an image and musical pivot at just exactly the right time, along with a crop other emerging bands from the southeast, which in turn helped Tooth & Nail pivot and transition to a new era.  Tooth & Nail has just acquired Takehold Records and its founder, Chad Johnson, to be head of A&R, and his connections began to pay off.   Ad || Zip Recruiter: ziprecruiter.com/LABELED   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Anberlin “Feel Good Drag”Ghoti Hook “Body Juggler”Plankeye “Goodbye”The Juliana Theory “We're at the Top of the World”Further Seems Forever “The Moon Is Down”Watashi Wa “Ten Years and Separating States”SAGOH 24/7 “Days Of Our Lives”Anberlin “Ready Fuels”Anberlin “Foriegn Language”Anberlin “Hello Alone”Anberlin “Breaking”Anberlin “Paperthin Hymn”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Chapter 13 We now continue to move into the 2000’s era of Tooth & Nail Records. Brandon has sold half of the company to EMI and has purchased and absorbed Takehold Records, which brought its founder Chad Johnson on staff. Heavy music was continuing to explode, but also, in keeping with the Tooth and Nail style, Brandon and the staff continued to try to break and include a very wide variety of artists, including a very happy and poppy rock outfit from San Luis Obispo, CA, called Watashi Wa. Fronted by yet another young man who grew up as a Tooth & Nail kid, Seth Roberts joins Labeled to help paint the picture of that time and the unique challenges they faced. The story is of one dream fulfilled, and of another only partially fulfilled.   Ad:  Listen to John van Deusen: http://jvd.lnk.to/origami   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Watashi Wa "Clear" Guns N' Roses "It's So Easy" MxPx "Let it Happen" Starflyer 59 "Fell in Love at 22" Fine China "We Rock Harder Than You Ever Knew" Watashi Wa "With Love From Me to You" Watashi Wa "All of Me" Watashi Wa "Smoke Signals" Watashi Wa "Face" Watashi Wa "Ten Years and Separating States"       MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Chapter 12 Demon Hunter’s origin story is shrouded in mystery and there are no shortage or rumors. Some that we will confirm today. Now that we have a good background knowledge or Ryan Clark Jon Dunn, Brandon, and the Tooth and Nail Culture at the time, the stage is set for this fun story. We continue where we left off 2 weeks ago, and also cover the continuation of the EMI merger, and the rewards that would come from taking some serious risks.   *Pre-order Wolves At The Gate’s “ECLIPSE”, out July 26th: http://watg.lnk.to/pre*   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Demon Hunter "Storm the Gates of Hell" Demon Hunter "Infected" Demon Hunter "Dead Flowers" Demon Hunter "Through the Black" Demon Hunter "The Heart of a Graveyard" Demon Hunter "Not Ready to Die" Demon Hunter "Turn Your Back and Run" Demon Hunter "Artificial Light" Demon Hunter "My Heartstrings Come Undone" Dead Poetic "New Medicines"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
August Burns Red is one of the Labeled listeners' favorite Tooth and Nail/Solid State bands, and statistically, that's not surprising. They have sold, get this, over 2 million records. It would be no understatement to say they are one of the most successful acts that ever came out of this scene. So to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the landmark album Constellations, I thought it would be great to see how they got into the Tooth and Nail culture in the first place, and connect the dots from the tiny house shows and basements that laid the groundwork and infrastructure that August Burns Red would step into and take to a whole new level.  I got to chat with guitarist JB Brubaker and drummer Matt Greiner the other day and had a great time. I think you’ll enjoy it too.   Hear Oh, Sleeper’s latest song ‘Fissure’ and pre-order their upcoming album BLOODIED / UNBOWED: http://solidstate.lnk.to/fissure   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Embodyment "One Less Addiction" August Burns Red "Your Little Suburbia in Ruins" mewithoutYou "Bullet to Binary" August Burns Red "White Washed" August Burns Red "Thirty and Seven" August Burns Red "Indonesia" August Burns Red "Crusades" August Burns Red "Mariana's Trench"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Tooth and Nail Kids

Tooth and Nail Kids

2019-05-3000:50:583

Chapter 11 Tooth and Nail had been sowing seeds and developing a culture of the better part of a decade when EMI acquired half of the company. Now, not only were they financially empowered, but their own culture was beginning to pay dividends. Kids that had been fans and following the label closely, now began to feed back into the system. This episode is a look at what it means to have been a first generation Tooth and Nail Kid, aspiring to participate in the culture you loved.   SPONSOR LINK: Zip Recruiter: ziprecruiter.com/LABELED   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Training for Utopia "Two Hands" Zao "Angel Without Wings" Thousand Foot Krutch "Puppet" Demon Hunter "Screans of the Undead" Focused "Forward" Training for Utopia "A Good Feeling" Living Sacrifice "Threatened" Vengeance Rising "Human Sacrifice" Living Sacrifice "No Longer" Demon Hunter "The Last One Alive"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Chapter 10 By the year 2000, EMI Records had been pursuing Tooth and Nail to buy half of the company and was already doing its distribution. New genres were emerging, Tooth and Nail was moving offices and the staff was beginning to undergo major changes as well. Solid State Records was gaining momentum with acts like Living Sacrifice and Zao as heavy music was becoming more widely accepted. Roy Culver, who worked for EMI was hired and moved to Seattle to be the first Solid State employee and its A&R.  Roy explains what the time of transition was like from his view and recounts stories of Solid State's successes and difficulties.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   Watch Strange Her "The Scarlet Cord" at strangehermusic.com  Roy Culver's Solid State Records Playlist on Spotify   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Living Sacrifice "Reborn Empowered" Living Sacrifice "Rejected" Zao "Kathleen Barbra" Norma Jean "Face" The Agony Scene "We Bury Our Dead at Dawn" Living Sacrifice "Imminent War" Stretch Arm Strong "For the Record" Eso-Charis "Born with a Future" Extol "Undeceived" Darkthrone "As Flittermice as Satans Spys" Selfmindead "Always" Norma Jean "Created Something out of Nothing, Only to Destroy"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store

Plankeye: Chasing the Dream

Chapter 9 Plankeye began as a raw, high energy power pop band in the 90's, but made their way into the polished Christian scene after touring with larger CCM acts. They became a commercial success, but appearances are not always what they seem. Guitarist Eric Balmer and others shed light on the complications and forces at play to make their breakout happen. This episode is an edited rebroadcast of one from before we began this series.    https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon   Join Labeled on Facebook   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
