First Blog

Hey Friends!

Welcome to the Truth Bomb Blog! This is Chris here. I'm trying to figure out how everything works on this site so hopefully I don't accidentally delete this blog before I post it!

Well, I hope you all had a great Christmas and your new year is off to a good start! I always love it when the new year rolls around. There's something fresh and exciting about another year coming. I don't know where I'll be or what I'll have seen or experienced by the time 2009 comes to a close. And that is exciting to me.

Coming up on January 23rd, Truth Bomb will be four years old! I can't believe it! My life has revolved around this crazy, music-making monster for four years. It has been a very interesting journey. On January 23, 2005 we played our first song for our small church congregation on a Sunday morning. The song was called "Today" and that was the last service ever held at our church. We were bewildered, wondering what God's plan could possibly be in closing our church, but we felt He had given us "Today" to share with others. And so to other churches we went, playing our music and playing covers of our favorite worship songs. And we have not stopped. We keep on going and I sometimes wonder how or even why we do so. I can only say that God started this thing and He is the only One keeping it going. And that's really the only way I want it.

We've been cooking up lots of plans for 2009 over the last couple months and I am getting excited! The Hourglass EP will be released this Spring and the two first singles from the EP ("Pray For You" and "Times Like These") have already been picked up by several radio stations around the world! We were surprised to have so many stations willing to play us even though we are an independent band and our recording and production budget was next to nothing. That kind of stuff just isn't supposed to happen to indies and we are very grateful to God for opening that door for us.

Now that we have our own blog, I plan to start blogging more often. Thanks for reading! Until next time!

Blessings to you!
