Same As Sunday recently released Earn Your Stripes EP. Earn Your Stripes is the second EP from the fast growing Indiana band, and features the same fun sound while definitely maturing throughout this release.
Earn Your Stripes if fast paced and definitely for the guitar solo lovers. This has some catchy words that are sure to be remembered. This group I feel still has some work, but has come a long way very quickly.
Influenced by a wide range of artists including Blink 182, Relient K, New Found Glory, The Devil Wears Prada, and even a few hair bands thanks to Nick, Same As Sunday writes energetic songs that cover aspects of faith, relationships, and the ups & downs of life.
Same As Sunday urges everyone to live each day with a strong purpose.
“It’s so easy to go to church on Sunday, the day that people typically choose to get their lives in order, have a great experience, and then live the rest of the week in a way that’s completely unaffected” Chris says. “That’s why we sing about the things we do, and why our name is Same As Sunday. We want people to live every day as if it were a Sunday…as if every day could be their last.”
Chris, one who is sure to live what he preaches has served with the United States Air Force for four years, and was recently deployed to an undisclosed location for Operation Enduring Freedom, where he’ll work as a firefighter in support for his country.
I volunteered because I felt it something I was called to do—to serve,” Chris shares. “I’m going to be away for five months, and the band will press ahead while I’m gone. But I’m excited about what God will do while I’m there, and I should be home just after Christmas.”
The experience of serving his country has not only been an important reminder of the encouraging words written in Isaiah 12:2: “Surely, God is my Salvation: I will trust and not be afraid,” but it has also inspired the title track from Earn Your Stripes.
