No B-Sides Songs Will Play At Disciple’s Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Online Concert

It’s pure greed on our part at TheBlast.FM.  Our own Colin Cruz just asked Disciple lead singer Kevin Young if the band will be playing any of the B-Sides songs at their online concert on Saturday January 23rd.

The B-Sides, you ask?

Yeah.  Remember?  That Disciple album that came out 10 years ago called Horseshoes & Hand Grenades…also had some digital add-on songs that didn’t make the main record.

It was called Horseshoes & Hand Grenades B-Sides.   And it had some fabulous songs on it that we have Blasted over the years:  namely The FuryComedy TragedyDisasterpiece, and Watch It Burn.

And the answer is?   No.

Young reminds us that they are playing the entire (main) Horseshoes & Hand Grenades album from front to back, plus playing two new songs, including The Blast hit Darkness Dies.    

Those two songs plus the 12 on Horseshoes & Hand Grenades makes 14, and Young says he can only handle 14 songs a night.

Fair enough.  It was worth asking.   Inquiring minds wanted to know.

Disciple Postpones Online Concert And Multiplies…

Disciple has postponed their second online concert until Saturday January 23, 2021, due to someone in one of the bands’ households testing positive for Covid-19.

In other group news, Disciple has multiplied into two bands.  The second band is Honor & Glory , the name for the new worship arm of the band.

Disciple says this about their offshoot band Honor & Glory:  Where the mission of Disciple is to reach the unreachable, the vision of Honor & Glory is to create a musical atmosphere where hearts, minds, souls, and voices center on the greatness and wonders of our amazing God through worship.

The debut album from Honor & Glory drops on BEC Records in 2021.

Disciple To Perform Entire Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Album In Concert

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades was a big album for TheBlast.FM when it came out  in 2010 and for a couple years after that.  We played Battle Lines, Comedy Tragedy, and Disasterpiece, and we still play all three songs.

So this is very exciting news for us, plagiarized from Disciple’s Facebook page:
