John's new band, and new record.

Post by fcollazo » Wed Jun 08, 2016 10:09 am

I find it odd that John has a new band, new record out, is touring and I don't see the excitement here, and we still have no clips from their show over the weekend. Did anybody here in the Zone go to their first show?
God's love hit's me where i live, in my perfect world, because i love the Lord.

I'm looking forward to the album release, but I haven't really listened to any of the songs that have been posted on-line.
Unfortunately, none of the tour dates are coming to my neck of the woods.

We really do need to get the word out about this. Here is the performance video for Independence Day:https://vimeo.com/169308859

The band looks great! John looks and sounds great! But only 17 views in 5 days. That is disappointing! I would have loved to have seen an original be the first single, but hey this is pretty good. John singing my favorite Whiteheart song, who would have ever guessed that. I don't post much here but I think we should get behind this. We don't get much Christian music like this any more. Lets try and get the word out! #OldGuysRule

I was reading on facebook people who were on the first shows and everyone said it was wonderful, a really great concert.
Those who already purchased the album also said to be excellent!

About the songs, Rise Up and Independence Day are available on iTunes a few days ago.
And Lone Soldier available on Spotify.

My opinion all are great songs. Lone Soldier a beautiful ballad with a magnificent lyrics.

I already bought the physical CD for pre sale in one store here in Brazil, but probably more than a month to get here.
Also I bought on iTunes, but have to wait for the release date to download.
I'm too anxious to hear the full album.

There hasn't been a push yet on the video - once that happens, there will be views!

I've listened to the whole project - and I'm lovin' it. I've listened with my best UNbiased ears, and this is an excellent project.

I've been searching for video too from this past weekend, but nothing. Got a few pix, but nothing more. Can't believe NO one took a few sneeeeky videos?

I am very happy because John and Billy are in this project!!! They are very important persons in the Christian Music history and is awesome to see them in a high quality project!

Last week I was in a Deep Purple concert and It was very interesting how a band with many and many years has the power to go on with a lot of energy in stage!!! I think the classic christian rock bands should return.

Hudson, where did you pre order the album ?

"Hit You Where You Live"? Wow! That's cool that they're not just doing all the songs straight off the album. That was one of my big pet peeves with Classic Petra.
