(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Feb. 24, 2015--Pop-rock band Bread of Stone delivers its fourth full-length album, Not Alone, this week. Enlisting an all-star ensemble of contributing talent, Not Alone is truly a collaborative effort that will challenge listeners to love life, God, and others wholeheartedly.

Band members Bill and Ben Kristijanto set out to spearhead the recording process, all in the back lounge of their tour bus turned state-of-the-art studio. The duo called on the help of producers Tedd T (For King & Country), Riley Friesen (Family Force 5), and David Thulin (Press Play) as well as artists Derek Mount (Family Force 5), Matt Dally (Superchick), Chris Greenwood (Manafest), and Jonathan Thulin.

Lyrically, the songs originated from Bread of Stone's desire simply to love. Ben comments, "Bread of Stone has grown immensely since our last record. My brother and I have both gotten married and my wife and I just had our first child during the midst of writing this record. Through these life-changing moments the Lord has been sculpting me and teaching me even more in-depth about His love. My hope is that everyone can hear this in the new songs."

That theme is evident on tracks like "Love That Lasts" and "Your Love," the latter asserting God's desire for our complete devotion to Him. "Life is Beautiful (feat. Manafest)" proclaims that beauty in life is based on our perspective: if we see Jesus in everything, life is surely beautiful.

"It may sound cliché," Bill shares, "But 'love' is our anthem. When everything in your life is based on love, when your whole album is based on love, you can't fail."

Not Alone is available via iTunes and other select digital music outlets. Hard copy CDs can be purchased on the band's web site.

About Bread of Stone:
Taking its name from a vision of being "useless materials" only made a blessing to others by Christ, Sioux City, Iowa-based Bread of Stone comprises Ben Kristijanto, Bill Kristijanto, Tim Barnes and Jason Ferris.

The development of Bread of Stone as artists began simply - first with a calling received by the Kristijanto brothers' father (a minister) that the brothers should be involved in a music ministry. The brothers duly began taking music lessons and gradually worked in to performing in local churches.

A group that truly puts service and ministry before dreams of pop stardom, Bread of Stone founded "The Light Project," regularly traveling to Indonesia to perform and fellowship with "scavenger" communities for whom scouring trash is a fact of daily existence.

Today, having toured with a veritable "Who's Who" of major CCM artists including Newsboys, Seventh Day Slumber, Superchick, Petra, Building 429, Sanctus Real and others - all while maintaining their profile as an indie band solely at God's direction, Bread Of Stone has matured in their music and message.
