Scattered Album Track List Revealed! + Song Story #1

Hi all! My goodness gracious, it’s been forever. In case you haven’t noticed, the band (Tony, Dave, other Dave, and Katie) has been laying low the last couple months while I’ve been focusing on some other areas of my life (proposing to my best gal, planning said wedding, and transitioning into a new full-time Worship Director position will do that to ya!). However, we are once again ready to kick things into high gear!

Even though gigs have been scarce the last couple of months (though, mark your calendars for October 2nd at The Block Food Truck Park near UTSA!), we have been working hard on our upcoming “Scattered” full length album. This is our first full length release since 2011! We are super pumped about these songs and are ready to share them with the world! As it sits today, the final track list for Scattered is as follows –

1) On My Way To You
2) Scattered
3) The Road
4) Enjoy the Silence
5) Only You
6) King Jesus
7) Kyrie
8) Love Like You Love Me
9) All For You (Psalm 62)
10) Alpha and Omega
11) Doxology

As we count down the months and weeks until the release of this record, I’ll be posting song stories, interesting tid bits, factoids, and a vast panoply of other content and bloggy blogs (perhaps a video on what the word “panoply” means). Keep your eyes peeled! Be sure to follow us on all the standard social media outlets for the latest scoop –

Hooray! We are excited to push the gas pedal down on this thang. See ya soon! Excited to share this new season with you! See you on the flippity flop.

Song Story #1 – On My Way To You

Written on: July 30th, 2015

Story:
This is a love song of sorts. The Scattered LP is an overtly Christian record, with lots of spiritual and vertical worship songs. In fact, On My Way To You is the only lovey dovey tune! It’s about missing your loved ones. It’s about distance. It’s about longing. The concept for this song came about during my 2014 Stages EP tour. I was missing my then girlfriend (now-fiance!) and I found myself with butterflies, in anticipation of seeing her again! I was driving back from New Mexico and all I could think of was “I’m on my way to see her! It won’t be long now!”.

As of today, believe it or not – the band hasn’t even heard this song yet! It’s pretty new. I’m very excited about it. It’s likely going to be the heaviest tune we have ever tracked and will work really well as a concert opener and closer. Lots of energy in this one! There’s even a progressive, heavy instrumental break down in the middle. Can’t wait to get this one recorded! We’ll have our work cut out for us. It’s a tough one!

Lyrics:
It’s been such a long time
that I only see you in my dreams
For some reason this time
it’s harder without you next to me

I’m missing you today
And though you’re worth the wait
It’s hard to do
Finally I’m on my way back to you

On my way to you
Yes I’m on my way to you

Sitting in silence
Your memory’s but a photograph
Tortuous distance
What I would give to make you laugh

I’m missing you today
And though you’re worth the wait
It’s hard to do
Finally I’m on my way back

On my way to you
Yes I’m on my way to you
Here I come

On my way to you
Yes I’m on my way to you
On my way to you
Yes I’m on my way to you
Here I come
Here I come
