New album "Marked for Life" out now on Thumper Punk Records
Punk veterans True Liberty announce their latest and best release “Marked for Life” on Thumper Punk Records. “Marked for Life” stands firmly on the broad shoulders of their past releases, positively blasting classic punk and oi! sounds in True Liberty’s unique and uncompromising style. Firmly committed, spiritually driven, pedal-to-the-metal music overflowing with hooks, chords and thunder. Available now for digital download from iTunes and all the usual suspects, CD pre-orders are available through the Thumper Punk Records webstore:
1. Who’s To Blame
2. Fist Fight In The Dirt
3. You Lose
4. Hell No
5. Danger Close
7. Broken Dream
8. Marked For Life
9. Stand United
10. Put It To Death
11. Hold Your Ground
12. Mad At The World
15. Take Up Your Cross
16. Good As Gold
As a sober punk band, True Liberty writes, performs and shares this message with fans throughout the world, “We’re not perfect, we’ve made mistakes but we have a responsibility to share our faith, our love, our passion for our Savior, Jesus Christ, with those around us. We press on despite struggles and attacks. We don’t get any fame, or money, or awards for what we do, but to us it’s about playing the music we love and using it to share Jesus with others.”
“Marked for Life” was produced by True Liberty and Todd Corvin, with digital mastering by Stephen Edgerton (Descendents/All). Cover art was provided courtesy of Dave Besanson Originals. Stout enough for fans of The Business, The Clash and The Ramones, but musically strong enough to be enjoyed by music lovers everywhere.

Last weekend was crazy. The show at Alley Katz was a late one, thanks to everyone that stuck it out with us. It was cool to finally meet Mason Summers, and The Shotdowns from NC were incredible. Love those guys.
Saturday were did some shooting for the video in Lynchburg with Chris T, Chris B, and Gram ( aka Wolverine ). We showed up at the Drowsey Poet for the show only to find that it was pouring rain and we werent able to play inside. After some scrambling we ended up at a hotel across the street. We had at least 25 people on the bus with us shuttling over to the hotel and everyone else followed us. We set up in the Liberty Ballroom, how awesome is that ! Hotel staff was surprisingly cool with everything. Spoknof rocked it out as a 2 piece, Hell City Sinners tore it up ! What an intence show. Thanks to all of you that helped load and unload gear with us and made the night possible.
Sunday we finished up shooting for the Take it Back video with the Broken Fan Crew. They are currently working on final editing and should be done soon. Its gonna be sick. Thanks to everyone that had a hand in helping us with this project.

Cornerstone 08 report. Man what a week. Started off with an amazing

Laodicea. Much love to Tim and the crew at SVYC for all your hard work.
On to Cornerstone, our new home away from home.
Day 1: We kicked off watching our new friends from Scotland in RODENT EMPORIUM, awesome comic punks, and we rocked out with our tour mates, To Laodicea, ending the 1st day with a set at the Impromptu Stage.
Day 2: Started the morning off with worship and preaching at the Anchor Stage. We played a set at 12pm and meet a lot of great new people. That night we rocked out at the Underground stage watching our friends the Filthy 42's, The Scurvies, FBS, Revolution Radio, Headnoise, The Last Hope and our boys from ChiTown, Flatfoot 56 !
Day 3: Started off with worship and teaching by Bryan Hanover ( x- Hanover Saints ) at the Fat Calf Stage. We got the honor of starting off the day at the fat calf stage. Thanks to our friends at Wounded Records, FBS, Flatfoot, The Scurvies, and everyone else that supported us at that show. It was and awesome all day event as the best punk bands at the festival tore up the stage all day long. ( Mainline Riders, The Scurvies, FBS, The Last Hope, The Hallowed, Rodent Emporium, Revolution Radio, and many more !
After the fatcalf closed down we headed to the Impromptu Stage to end the night. It was our last set as an official Raging Storm Records band. We thank J for all he did to help us get started in the Christian music world. During our set we were joined by the famous Harry Gore for our cover of Johnny B Goode, To Laodicea and the Filthy 42's joined us in singing This Little Light/ I have decided. and at the end of the set J Scannell himself joined us on vocals for "Just a Sinner"

Big News from True Liberty.
True Liberty announces a change to the bands line-up. Tom Schoppe ( aka Tom Liberty ) , one of the founding members of True Liberty, has announced that he is leaving the band. Tom dedicated 2 years to getting the band off the ground and helped negotiate the band into a deal with Raging Storm Records. Tom has felt God's calling in other areas of his life. Tom will still remain very close with the band but his attention will turn to his family and Gods leading.
With that True Liberty also announces the newest member of the band.
Tim Perkins ( Tim Liberty ) Tim joined the band as the new bassist in November of 2007.
Tim Liberty's bio:
Born in Washington and raised Caifornia and Louisiana, Tim recently moved to the Richmond, VA area from Bremerton, WA to join True Liberty. Tim became a Christian at age 17 and set himself to playing music that honors God. A self proffesed total screw-up, but he knows that God's grace is sufficient. Tim has been playing guitar and bass since he was 14, and he played in several bands over the years, mostly hard rock and punk, with a bit of classic rock thrown in. Musically influenced by AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, OC Supertones, Plankeye, Sex Pistols, Van Halen, Guns 'n Roses, MxPx, Headnoise, One Bad Pig, the Eagles, the Beatles, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, the Who, Five Iron Frenzy, Rez Band, Petra, and tons of others. Tim is happily married to the woman of his dreams, and has two teenage kids, a dog and two demon possessed cats.
Please join me in welcoming Tim to the band.
As always thanks to all of you for your continued prayers and support.
Its been a while since the last update so we need to give a big thanks to FBS, The Scurvies, The Filthy 42s, Capgun Standoff, To Laodicea, Dayspring, and all the other bands that have been amazing to play with these past few months.
Thanks to all the troops who came out to the Ft Lee show. The guy that did the 50+ diamond pushups was crazy. Thanks for rocking out with us. God Bless to all who are shipping out soon.
