Craig Owens released new music for a 2-song album called the Las Vegas Sessions. It's up on bandcamp.
In 2015 I went on a personal journey of sorts. Getting as lost as I possibly could in hopes of finding myself. I toured the United States in a rental car, playing your living rooms & driving hours upon hours in unfamiliar places - re-examining pieces of myself I had forgotten about. Desperately searching for a way to fall back in love with the love of my life, music. Years of obsession had left me lacking passion, and the voices in my head had silenced all confidence… but I found myself still breathing.

Today, we're exclusively streaming the brand new album from Before Their Eyes, Midwest Modesty, out 12/18 via InVogue Records. The record was co-written and produced by Craig Owens (Chiodos, D.R.U.G.S.), establishing itself to be one of the best post-hardcore records of the waning months of the year. The band has really come a long way in the last decade, and if you're a fan of the genre, you should find it absolutely necessary to give this album a chance. On a personal note, I'd recommend the track "The Positive and Negative Of Being Alone". If you like what you hear, you can pick it up here.

Craig Owens will be doing four solo acoustic nights in Texas. Dates in the replies.
On The 4 Nights In Texas tour, you can expect an even mixture of songs from my entire catalogue. Songs from Chiodos, DRUGS, Cinematic Sunrise, my solo ep, covers, and a few other fun surprises. My friend Peter Tsouras from the band Fairweather will be joining me on all four of the Texas dates. I'm really stoked on this, because Peter and his work with Fairweather helped shape me as a musician. I remember seeing them play in Flint, MI at my hometown venue, and saying "I'm going to do that one day." The fact that he'll be sharing the stage with me shows you just how full circle life really is.

They are all very talented individuals and I have no doubt that they will succeed no matter what it is they choose to do next. They stood next to me during one of the most difficult times in my life and I will never be able to thank them enough for what it is that they did for me.

Check out our interview with Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows/Craig Owens here. We talk about their most recent headlining tour, Isles & Glaciers, and whether or not Craig will be writing a book.
From The InterviewAnother great thing about Isles & Glaciers is that it's not too planned, but we still have to be passionate about doing it, and everybody has their own thing going on: Pierce The Veil, what we've got going on, and what B-South has going on, a band called The Company We Keep with Justin from Motion City Soundtrack. Everyone has their own thing, and if Isles & Glaciers happens again, it'll be done the right way -- if Jonny is in a better place to be involved, he will be...if...
