We’re going to be hitting the road with our friends Man on Earth here shortly. We’ll have the dates up ASAP but in the meantime, you can follow the link and check them out!
How come ya'll don't have a guestbook on here for people to sign when they visit your page?
Hm.. good question. That’d be pretty neat. We’ll see what we can do.
What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
Any interests outside of making wonderful music? Including but not limited to weird hobbies, interesting collections or nerdy past times?!
When Brad’s not behind a drum kit, he’s either hanging out at Fly’s Tie in Atlantic Beach or sleeping. Jordan is a worship leader at Elevate Life Church in Orange Park. Brett is a football junkie and Shawn likes to take pictures of various meals and promptly eat them. The meals, not the pictures.
We’re stoked to be stopping by Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Gulfport, Mississippi this Wednesday! The next night, we’re in Atlanta at the Peachtree Tavern. The Atlanta show will be 21 and up. You can find more details on those dates in the Tour Dates section. Check back for more dates, including our spring run with Man on Earth, as well as an updated Photos section. See y’all soon!
Check out a clip from our set this past weekend at the Social in Orlando, FL! The song is called “Die Alone” and you can find it on our brand new record!

This about sums this past week’s trip to south Texas.
What is the story behind the lyrics of "Soldier with a Song"?
Shawn: “This song in particular took the longest to write out of all the tracks (about 4 months on and off). It went through about 3 or 4 different face-lifts. I wrote it without any music, just started singing the first few lines in my car one night. There were multiple times when I just wanted to throw this song out of the running for the album, simply because I couldn’t stand how difficult it was to finish. However, even though this song is not my favorite on the album, it was a labor of love. I knew it needed to be on there if this album was to be an honest representation of what I (and the band) have been through in the last couple years. Lyrically, this song is absolutely integral to the history of SOABM. This song is about our first “black-eye” in the music industry. It is the struggle of wanting to “play-ball” with the people with the power to make your dreams come true, and then nothing coming from it. The year that we spent on a major label was one of the worst that any of us can remember as musicians. I, personally, did not write one song by myself that year because the thought of it put a terrible taste in my mouth. Its taken a while for me to be comfortable enough to even attempt to put that part of my life into words. The most important part of the song for me is the aspect of overcoming the struggle. We’re going to keep writing, rocking, and performing through thick and thin.”
