Believable Picnic: Noisy, eclectic, pop or just "pop-core."
BP: Self, Jackson 5, The Katies, J. Giles, Beastie Boys
BP: Adding keyboards, realizing who we are as musicians, sleep deprivation, 2 years of music business shenanigans, being flat broke.
BP: Yeah, we are still on Absolute, but this is our last record for them. It's a long story, but we think it will work out best for both parties involved. As far as why it's been so long between albums, there's a lot of story in that too. However, once the album was finally conceived and we decided to do it, the big hold up was distribution. Absolute had been distributed by WCD (Warner Christian Distribution), and our album was set to drop like March 15th, but WCD closed it's doors like 5 days before our album release. So, since then, there has been a mad distribution scramble, and things are just beginning to work out. In any case, we have actually seen fully completed CDs, so in all likelihood it should be in stores in the next two weeks. We are also pretty excited about the new stuff. although it is somewhat of a departure from the "grunginess" of the first album, we think it's rock music that is very cool and, generally, more accessable to everyone - Christians in the rock arena, the CHR market, and to the straight up secular market. We'll just have to wait and see what God has planned for it, and for us.
BP: This song is a rehashing of Solomon's warning to us to not chase after un-Godly women.
BP: This song is a pointed lyric towards those who self-righteously sit in comfort and criticize those who step out in leaps of faith.
BP: Jade's brother Joel's [Hanson, formerly of PfR] frustration with trying to speak what's in his heart but having to state it in such a simple fashion so that everyone can understand and that the answers that God gives us are not always easy or what we want to hear/our disappointment with the industry's formula for that they consider a "Good "CHR Radio Song." The sound clips is from the movie Waiting for Guffman. The town Historian is speaking.
BP: A commentary on the world's idea of love versus God's design for True Love.
BP: "Sugar" and "Easy Chair" from Welcome to the Future. "Band on the run" -- Wings.
BP: Waiting for Guffman
BP: Diet Coke.
BP: Jason Burkum.
BP: Captain Crunch and Lucky Charms.
BP: Water ballet, wake boarding, & Nick is going to farm water buffalo.
BP: We really love to listen to Switchfoot, Steve Taylor, and dc Talk.
