You guys heard of the Benjamin Gate?!?! They are this amazing band on Forefront records. They are one of my faviorates!! I just had to tell you all that their new CD "Contact" may even be better than their 1st one "untitled"!!! They are getting a lot of mainstream press like on regis and kelly and Best Buy and Walmart etc are carrying their cds!!! (Check out christian alternative I think is where they are located) This guys are awesome!!! Who's heard of them and what do you think about the way they want to influence the mainstream crowd and reach non-believers?

they are a great band... seen them live a couple times... I need to get their albums but that requires money that I don't have... they have great sound and a great stage appearance

Yeah, I got there cd from a guy that was after me. Personally, I don't care for them. But if you do, that's great for you! :biggrin:

oh i'm so glad someone started a thread about them! i had their cd about 2 months before it came out (my best friend's uncle has some involvement in the Christian music business... as to what he does, your guess is as good as mine).. i LOVE them. they're one of the few bands with a female lead singer whom i truly adore. not to mention their lyrics are beautiful!

I saw them with Pillar a while ago. I'm afraid I didn't catch what most of their songs were trying to say, but they weren't bad. One of the few female vocalists I like (or can stand :cool: )
