So I got the following e-mail the other day, and I have to admit that I'm pretty impressed. First, it's better than most of what I hear on Christian radio day-in day-out (particularly Tara's vocals). Second, I'm doubly impressed at the quality coming from a group of Cath-a-holics not yet legally able to throw back a cold one. Here's the skinny:
I wanted to send you a message regarding my catholic/christian band named Full Armor. Full Armor is unique in the fact that it is made up of 6 young catholics, ranging in age from 15-20. Full Armor writes and records all original music. [We] were recently honored to play at the pope's youth rally in yonkers in front of 25,000 people....I would love for the band to gain some exposure through your website. The band's website is www.fullarmorband.com
So, yeah, color me impressed. I'm not going to deep-link to their audio because I think you should all go to their site - but you should know there are 10+ tracks available for free download. You should go get them while they're still free. ;0)

Oh, and if you're in the NY/NJ area you ought to try and catch a show. Check their schedule for a list of upcoming appearances.

    You should know Ive had the chance to see these AMAZING kids live in concert, and they are truly gifted...They have a youthful energy, with a life changing message, and, of course, great musical chops

    WOW! This is really great music! Where have they been hiding? great contemporary sound from a Catholic group.

    I agree-this music is as good as or better than what I hear on Sound of Life, etc.

    I just checked itunes and the music is available there also.

    Are they primarily known in the east coast, NY area?

    Great stuff!!!

    Praise God...these kids are really good. Our Catholic churches need some of their own christain music. These kids are our future. We should be supporting them. I am definitely going on itunes.

    Full Armor's music is wonderful. I have had the honor of attending one of their concerts and these kids are so talented, each and every one. They need to really be discovered!

    How come this is the first time we have heard about this band? The Catholic community needs more witnesses like this; young and talented. This is how we can inspire youth for the future.
