Report on the Road Crash

Hey Faith Heads .. first we want to thank all of you that were following us on social media on the start of the last dates of the summer leg of the Genesys tour. Without your immediate support we wouldn’t have had the encouragement nor the financial support to push forward. We would thank you all individually by name but there are so many of you we’re afraid we might forget someone accidentally, but trust us we know who you are and are eternally grateful for your support.

People asked if we are going to setup a GoFundMe for this but it would take too long to get the money as we hit the road again at the end of August. Instead we’re asking to send any donations for repairs to faithheadband@gmail.com via PayPal. We hate to ask after everyone has been so generous but we’re up against the clock and insurance will only cover so much. We’re not wealthy people and don’t have label support. Any amount would be a huge assistance.

We keep getting asked “what happened” that day. We were driving down I-65 in Alabama to pick up our guitarist, Brian Montgomery, and were about 10 miles from his home. We noticed that Yukon started wobbling funny. We pulled over, checked all the tires on the Yukon and the trailer. We didn’t see anything wrong so we started rolling again. As we got about a half mile down the road we realized there was an issue. As we started to slow down to pull over the driver’s side rear tire blew.

As we tried to ease the vehicle off on to the side of the road the trailer started to fish tail. We slid into the grass as PFunk tried to keep us from flipping. As we slid to a halt the trailer broke from the hitch and started to flip. The trailer should have landed on top of us considering the laws of physics and the position of the vehicle to the trailer. Only by the mercy and grace of God not only did it miss our vehicle it rolled right past us.

After we all checked our underwear, we got out and thanked the Lord Jesus Christ that none of us were injured. No other vehicles were involved. We were all in shock about what had just happened and not sure what to do in the moment. After a few minutes of catching our breath we called 9-1-1 and started making phone calls. The police showed up after 15 minutes (thank God we weren’t injured) and wrecker was called.

We managed to unload most of our gear out of the trailer with it still on its side. We had to cut most of the ratchet straps to get the road cases loose.  Friends and family came to assist us to get our stuff off the side of the road. We had to go the wrecker yard to get the lighting trusses we couldn’t get from the trailer on its side, our luggage and personal items out of the Yukon. Special thanks to the wrecker driver for meeting us after hours to get our stuff.

While we were dealing with the wreck, Donny’s wife was driving his truck down from Chattanooga so we could either have a means to get home or continue. Once we got all the gear to Brian’s we started inspect all the guitars and equipment to make sure everything worked. We wouldn’t be able to test the lighting until we got it to our show in Oklahoma. After checking all the essentials we determined that we had everything we needed to continue forward. Running solely on adrenaline and the power of the Holy Spirit, the five of us piled into Donny’s truck.

If wasn’t for a local Uhaul representative we knew, the next part of the story would be much different. This person working from home, after hours, was able to get us a 6 x 12 trailer so we could load all our gear and get back on the road just before midnight. We drove for a few hours until we couldn’t go anymore and got a hotel.

Unfortunately, we did miss our show at the Hi Tone in Memphis, TN with Wither & Bloom. We will get a make-up date on the calendar as soon as possible.

We will finish the rest of the story in our next post. Needless to say, without our fans and several of our fellow bands and artists we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish the next part of this story. God bless you all!

Faith Head & SoulShine rock Cafe Agape!

Middle Tennessee got very loud Saturday night with Chattanooga’s own SoulShine & Faith Head at Cafe Agape in Tullahoma! It was great to share the stage again with our brothers in SoulShine as they kicked off the night with a killer set. We appreciate all who came out and supported us! Here are some photos of what you missed!

Thanks to Brent & Stephanie for the photos!

Faith Head – 2.0 Genesys EP

Its the beginning of the end .. of a long wait. Faith Head proudly presents their second studio album: Genesys!

FaithHead-Genesys

Faith Head’s Genesys album reflects much of what we see happening in the world today. Is it the beginning of the end or just a dress rehearsal for Armageddon? Our new EP takes you on a musical journey through our culture & time told through the Christian worldview!

But there is a path of redemption for those who believe in Jesus Christ and that have hope who will emerge victorious.

The tracks on Genesys are:

  1. Genesys (5:04)
  2. Mindless Automatons (4:10)
  3. Old Sin, New Skin (4.38)
  4. Prodigal Road (5:20)
  5. Rise Up (4:17)

The album will be available worldwide digitally on April 15th or you can purchase the physical CD from our merch shop by click here before then! For those of you who stream our music, you can go ahead and cue up Genesys here!
