So, we officially premiered the song "Make Your Move" from our upcoming album MOVE (October 19th) at our recent Tualatin, OR show. We've been hesitant to attempt more than two new songs (per Facebook suggestion) from an album that is not coming out for another 3 months. Lift Up Your Face is the single. Band Marketing 101: play your single. + We love the song. Gone will never be a single, barring a massive format change at Christian radio from Adult Contemporary to Heritage rock, but it feels like a comfortable pair of jeans that once you put on, you want to wear every day (even if they're a bit dirty!) All that to say, our allotted 2 new song slots are filled for the summer.
However, we have been taking advantage of the occasional soundcheck to work on new material. We worked Make Your Move up to fighting shape, and it just seemed like a shame to just put it in the garage without taking it for a lap around the track. I made the compelling case that "Peace" might as well be a new song as a good portion of the audience wasn't born when it was released, and as long as we played the new song well, no one would know the difference.
So, we decided to play the song for what could be just one night only for a while. We just played it. Didn't say anything, and moved on. But, I think it turned out pretty good for the first time out. I was hoping that the song would have made its way to YOUTUBE by now, but I think we outrocked the audio on all the cameras in the room. So for now, it's just for you. Check it out in the Wired radio wired members. It's the 2nd song in on Tualatin, OR show.
Also, if you listen on you'll notice that Oregon fans have the most obscure song requests we've ever encountered.
