They don’t really. They mostly make being in a band look cool. Which isn’t that hard when you really think about it, a lot of the worst bands in the world live pretty saweet lives. That and they’re not a Christian band. They’re “a band of Christians,” or “Christians in a band,” or “Christian band-ish,” but NOT a Christian band.
They also make working really really really hard look cool. And almost nobody can do that. They dress sharp, play home made instruments, take fabulous press photos, own every stage they play, and say things in interviews like “shit.”
They’re also working on a new album. September release date something something, yadda yadda yadda crowning achievement. The hype is billowing; go big or go home, Mutey.
