I think they will. They redefined what it meant to be a "Christian Rock Band" and they even went as far as to reject that label. Hopefully we'll see more great stuff from them in the future, including much better albums. I hear Hello Hurricane is going to be an anticipated masterpiece

Just listened to a few of their albums. Was impressed, I must say. Didn't think they were a 'Christian' band. I guess that's Jesus they're talking to, instead of a girl.

They sorta fall in between Blink-182 and Smashing Pumpkins (leaving any lyrics aside).

To the HOF? No, but a pretty good band.

Saw these guys Friday at Bogarts, in Cinn. About 750 there for them, alot in that place. They gave a very enjoyable performance, touring in support of their new album, so several of the songs they played were off it. That album is alot more poppy (IMO) than some of their earlier stuff, so I was a bit bummed they didn't play more of their earlier stuff.

The younger brother of the lead singer is now 2 months into being the group's bassist. He had a big grin on his face. Think these guys would do fine at most of the fests I attend. Hope they gaet the chance to do that in coming year. They are from California.

To further my previous post about hem not playing some of their earlier stuff, they did not play 'Bullet Soul'!?!?

Now go & listen to the album version of that song & then tell me you wouldn't play that song at every gig.

That's an example of why I was a tad disappointed at end of show.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
