Petra's new album "Jekyll & Hyde" is about three weeks away from hitting the street, so there is a lot to talk about! In this newsletter you'll get the scoop on two radio singles from J&H as well as a surprise candidate to replace Louie Weaver.

But the biggest thing I want to tell you about is the launch of PRMW's "Jekyll & Hyde Headquarters," where you will find the first review of the new album, band photos, sound clips, and much more.

This is a great issue, so keep reading!

Until next time,

Two new singles

Two singles from Petra's new album have been released. The first was the title track "Jekyll & Hyde," which was released as a rock single on June 27. This song really cooks, and it marks Petra's triumphant return to Christian rock radio.

The other single, released to AC Christian stations on July 11, is called "'Till Everything I Do."

YOU can help Petra by requesting these songs from your local Christian stations. For info on how to do this (as well as a list of internet stations for those of you with no local radio station), visit the "Jekyll & Hyde HQ" Radio page.

An old drummer could be the new drummer

In other news, Petra is continuing their search for a permanent replacement for Louie Weaver. You may recall that Louie and Petra separated in February. The band hired a temporary drummer named Justin Johnson to fill in for their current tour dates, but he has not been announced as the permanent replacement.

Among the candidates under consideration is a drummer named Bill Glover. Does that name sound familiar? It should! He was one of the original members of Petra in the early 1970s.

To get the scoop on Bill's jam session, check out PRMW's News page.
