The 1980s gave rise to the fast-growing Christian rock and metal scene, and Whitecross led the way. Whitecross’s early sound is often compared to Ratt and they have enjoyed a very long run of popularity with a world-wide fan base. With lead guitarist and founding member Rex Carroll, Whitecross released six studio albums and toured continuously from 1988 to 1994 performing approximately one thousand concerts while establishing and building a live connection with their fans. Their work won three Dove Awards for “Metal Album of the Year” and “Hard Music Recorded Song of the Year” between 1990 and 1994. Whitecross continued without Rex Carroll from 1994 until he rejoined for their comeback show at the 2000 Cornerstone Festival that drew about 6,000 people. Since then, they have performed festivals and short tours and are still continuously active on the concert trail. Based near Chicago, Illinois, they have performed throughout the United States of America and into the rest of the world including South America, Australia, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. In 2019 they made their longest journey and performed in Nagaland, India. In 2021 lead vocalist David Roberts joined Whitecross and they are now creating and performing their first new music in over twenty years! The “Fear No Evil” EP on Dark Star Records is a preview disc of the full-length album slated for release in 2022.
