As of today, we have decided to begin a new journey. Almost a year and a half ago, Aaron and I decided to put a band together and play our first show under the name “The Monday Movement.” At the time, we were not doing much of anything musically and we wanted to give our friends something to listen to and have a little fun ourselves. We did have fun. We played around five shows and not a single one did we regret. The Monday Movement, as we were calling it, lasted about six months. At that six month point, once we stopped responding to emails, playing shows, or promoting ourselves, some people became curious as to why we were stopping all of a sudden. To us, it was not strange, considering that it was all just for fun anyway and it was meant to pass the time. Plus, summer was here and there were better things to do. But, there is more to what we did that summer.
The spring of 2013 was filled with answered prayers about the next step. All of a sudden (through many different people that surrounded us and situations God put us in), we knew we were supposed to record. Aaron and I had 5 key songs between us and more being written everyday that did not quite fit the mold of The Monday Movement, but were very much like nothing we had done before either. Within them there was a resounding cry of life and war between dark and light. There was something real about these songs that made them seem like the songs to record. They weren’t our favorite and probably weren’t our best, but they were real and they held truth that we had seen in our own lives.
So, for the past year, we have been recording these songs. We’ve driven long hours, worked harder than ever and experienced hot summer days and cold winter nights. Now, as we approach the end of this journey, we had some decisions to make. Were we going to pursue promotion of these songs? What would we call ourselves if we did? Who would we pursue? For a long time, there were a lot of unanswered questions. We tossed around band names and goals and plans for hours on end with a lot of frustrating days being the result.
Today, we came to the decision that we would release this EP under The Monday Movement’s name. The name has a familiar ring to it and is a name that seems to sum us up pretty well (not completely sure why yet). So, what does this mean for The Monday Movement? There will be new songs and old. There will be new sounds and familiar ones. New faces. Old faces. Our main goal right now is to pursue God above any one sound, lyric, show, image, or name.
So, we are The Monday Movement. Kamron Sanders and Aaron White. We like to play loud, soft and everywhere in between. We like to sing about life and life in Christ. You will meet a lot of our friends and hopefully we will get to meet a lot of yours along the way.
Stay tuned for more news coming soon.
