Json and Lamp Mode Recordings have join forces to re-release Json's sophomore album, Life On Life. The album will be distributed through Infinity Distribution and drops next Tuesday December 9th as a soft release. The album will not be marketed to Christian retailers until February 17th 2009.

Lamp Mode Recordings is excited to have Json as part of their growing team. Json brings a unique element to the label, which has traditionally only had east coast artists. Lamp Mode sees this as an opportunity to embrace the importance of the gospel, allowing them to overlook musical preferences, all in the hope of providing a larger platform for Json's ministry. After the re-release of Life On Life, Json will begin doing shows and begin to develop the next album to be released on Lamp Mode. Add a comment
