"When We Come Alive" Music Video


I wrote about life giving moments, and our band made a song and a video about it. Hope you enjoy!
"Life is a concept, not a reality." -- Ferris Jabr
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.
What does it mean to be alive? Is it breath? Growth? A steady succession of thoughts, feelings or actions? Scientists have no definite answer to the question. They say life is a process, not just a specific collection of materials. Bacteria, plants and humans all demonstrate radically different ways of being alive. So the question comes back to you: How do you define life? In many ways, the answer will come to define you.
For me, there is a dramatic difference between thriving and just surviving: life abundant and mere existence. There have been low moments in my life when I felt like I was slowly dying, just wasting away. Yes I had a pulse, but my potential felt untapped.

The Edge of the Earth EP Release

We're so stoked to announce the release of The Edge of the Earth EP, a collection of unreleased songs from our movie Fading West. These 7 tracks are a huge part of the story told in the film and the journey we took around the world that made it possible. This diverse EP covers a lot of emotional territory to complete the Fading West story, including Tim singing lead on a song for the first time ever (What it Costs), and the first studio recording of long-time fan favorite song, "Against the Voices." From heartache to adventure, we're hoping you can make these songs as big a part of your life as they have been for ours! Grab your copy HERE.


Fall Tour Dates


Hello friends!

After an amazing spring and summer out on the road and playing some incredible festivals, we couldn't be more excited for the fall! We'll be taking the Fading West rock show to places we haven't been and familiar territory that we can't wait to see again. We're also so excited to be taking Gungor out with us as support this time around. Be sure to check HERE to see if we're coming to your town, and grab your tickets before they run out! See you soon - we can't wait!
