HolyName’s self-titled debut album from Facedown Records has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Albums list. The project also claimed No. 10 on the Top New Artist Albums chart and No. 15 on the Current Hard Music Albums list.

HolyName is led by Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant fame, with the supergroup lineup rounded out by Brook Reeves (Impending Doom), Matthew Weir (Sleeping Giant), Aaron Craner and Joe Holt. Ryan Leitru (For Today) has served as their producer. HolyName’s debut full-length album HolyName showcases their signature, self-described sound: “violent worship.”

“We feel shocked and truly humbled and grateful by the people who have supported this release and made it a success,” Tommy Green says, as he reflects on the project’s wildly successful debut. “The pain and the journey and the faith journey of this record is the substance of struggle and devotion that many people can identity with in these days. There is a time for lament, a time to stop and listen to the pain of the world and the pain of the soul. That is faith as well.”
