What is music? It’s a world within itself, in a language we all understand.

What does your band name mean? It means escaping death; it has Biblical meaning to it.

What venue would you like to play the most? The Glasshouse, The House of Blues in Anaheim, Arrowhead Pond. We've already played most of the better venues that we know of: Showcase, Chain Reaction, and others.

Where was your best show? Showcase.

Who do want to open for? Children of Bodom, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, He is Legend, Nodes of Ranvier, and As I Lay Dying. Those bands have given us a lot of inspiration with our music.

Why do you play music? Because we love music. It's a great way for us to express ourselves, and to glorify God.

When was your band formed? Early 2003.

How has your response been lately? We've gotten really good responses. People have asked us if we have any demos or we want to do shows with them.

Do you have any advice to starting bands? YES, COMMUNICATE! It is one of the most important things; life will be so much easier if you take the time to communicate with each other. Practice helps a lot, at least once a week, if not more. Prayer always helps.

What is the best thing about music? The enjoyment of playing. It is one of the greatest feelings to play, whether there is an audience or not. Its almost always fun, as long as you don't make it into a chore.

What do you want to see happen through music in the future? Well it would be nice to inspire others to start playing music, and it would be cool if some people got saved through our music.

Does your religion affect your music? Yes, it has a real big influence on it.

What do you guys do for work right now, other than playing music? Chase works at Gamestop, the rest of us are looking for jobs. Though, Gib and me have been working for our friends.

Do your parents like you playing music today? Yeah, they're glad that were in bands. It keeps us out of trouble and gives us something to do.

Does being involved in playing music make you miss out on anything? It can, but we haven't missed out on anything that's more important than the band.

Anything to say to fans reading this? Thank you all for supporting us.
