Jesus Freak Hideout posted (another) review of the new album, giving it a 3.5 out of 5, saying “The Struggle can, well, struggle.” They continued to bash “Don’t Stop the Madness” – those guys REALLY don’t like the song, huh? Read through it HERE.

We’ve finally got some videos from the acoustic album preview with Sirius XM in NYC a few weeks ago – play their cover of “Stand By Me” below, and more links following! (Did you know? This cover is going to be on their iTunes acoustic release, coming this winter!)


The guys played an album release show in a mall yesterday! If you’ve got any other updates on the show, send them in to, but right now, we’ve got a few videos from the set:

    Do you think that TAN will put up any new apparel (new shirts, accessories, etc.)on their website for the Struggle tour? If they do, I hope they make Tenth Avenue North branded socks… xD

      Usually the way these things work is that they have the merch at shows first, then upload what’s left to the site. For example, there’s a ton of merch at their shows that isn’t online right now. But yes, they’re working on new stuff for the upcoming tour :)

    The lady who posted all those videos, has the one video of them talking about their favorite line from the new album, & it has me talking in it. Well, I’m the girl who knew all the lyrics to new songs haha. That was sort of random :P
