Collabs And Band Member-Sharing At Kingdom Come Festival

Amongst The Giants lead singer Brian Boyd

Collaborations and band member-sharing.  There is a whole lot of both happening these days in Christian Rock, and a lot of it happened at the Kingdom Come Festival this month.  Matt Baird showed up on stage to do It’s OK with Death Therapy; Marco Pera (of Amongst The Giants) played bass for Disciple; Chaotic Resemblance’s drummer John Jakway banged the skins in an emergency for Spoken; and any time you have multiple Rockfest Records bands present, the Rockfest fam comes together.  Here is a snippet of  Amongst The Giants in concert, with help from Zahna and The Persuaded:  https://www.facebook.com/TheBlastFM/videos/732599020904851/

As a radio station that has been playing The Letter Black on the radio since August 2,  2007 when they were called “Breaking The Silence” with the song The Stand…TheBlast.FM is very excited about the fact that they have been in the studio for the last 3 days recording the first phase of the next album, which will be on Rockfest Records.  They go back to the studio for phase 2 in August 2020!

Death Therapy & Spoken’s Matt Baird Team Up For It’s OK At Kingdom Come 2020

Jason Wisdom, lead singer of Death Therapy, is on the left, and Spoken’s Matt Baird is on the right.

They did it!  The Blast’s Colin Cruz had been wondering on air for this for weeks: since Spoken and Death Therapy played on the same day at Kingdom Come Festival…will Matt Baird hop on stage to do It’s OK with Death Therapy?  We asked both bands online.   Normally, they answer our questions.  But not this one.  And…surprise!  It happened!

You can hear Colin Cruz say “Where’s Matt?!” early in the song and “There’s Matt!!!” later in the song when he shows up.

We have the video for the song here:  https://www.facebook.com/TheBlastFM/videos/202328547886148/
