This album has been taking shape for quite some time now.  What started out over two years ago as just a stripped down EP of a few songs we had been working on, has turned into a full production 12 track album.  

As we got into the process of recording, we started writing more music and there seemed to be a common thread running through all the songs.  We are aware of God's relentless pursuit of us and sometimes we are running into his arms, but so often we are running away.  All the while He is chasing hard after us, not from obligation, but because He so loves to rescue us.  This idea of "running and chasing" seemed to be that thread, so we chose that as the title.

Having guys in the band who have their own studio has been very beneficial and has allowed us to cut a lot of corners financially.  But not all corners can be cut and we can't handle the financial burden of getting this thing completed, at least not all at one time. And the purpose is not so we can just make a big profit from the sales - we are just SO ready to get this music into your hands, then into your CD player/ipod and into your ears!  

The music is all recorded and ready to be mixed, mastered and printed.  Our goal amount is a bare minimum amount for getting it completed.  If we don't get this full amount, the project doesn't get funded at all.  But even if we have reached our goal, please continue to give if you want to help out.  There are ways we would like to make it better and giving above the goal will help make that happen.

We've done all we can with the resources we have.  Now YOU have the chance to get involved with getting this thing wrapped up.  Please look at the rewards section and give what you can and PLEASE tell someone else about this so they can get involved as well.  

We so deeply appreciate your help.  Seriously!  You are enabling us to do what we love and we do not take that lightly.  Thank you in advance for funding this project.

Grace and peace to you!
