Thanks to all of you who helped get 'Mess Of Me' to #12 on the
Alternative Rock Chart. This is a tremendous accomplishment, and you all played a huge role in the song's success.Our next single is going to be "The Sound (John M. Perkins' Blues)", and the official release date at radio is April 26th. Here's what Jon
had to say about the song: "The Sound (John Perkin's Blues) is a very important song
for us as a band. I see so much hatred and fear around me, I see so many people living
out their pain. I hear it on the radio. I see it in the headlines. John Perkin's story needs to be heard. This song was inspired by a man who sang a louder song than hatred. In a world where we are defined by our differences, Mr. Perkin's life of service and
compassion is a tangible demonstration of what it means to live a life of love. Love is the loudest song we could sing. Louder than racism. Louder than fear. Louder than
hatred. John Perkin's said it right, love is the final fight. We're excited to hear this song on the radio, louder than pain." Let's do this!
In the UK, 'Mess of Me' has been added to the Kerrang Radio playlist,
and is the Kerrang single of the week.
