It is August 26th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The song being recognized this week is from a band that was recently awarded as 'Band of the Month' earlier this year on our website. And, with their newest record currently in the works, this band is sure to gain the attention of even more fans around the world when it is released.
Message Through Motion is the Belleville, Ontario band getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot. Their most recent release, titled Walk On Water, is one song you definitely have to listen to.
I quite honestly have no idea how I initially came across Message Through Motion in the first place. But, their debut EP, The Searching, has been on repeat ever since I found them on Facebook earlier this year. The Searching was released on iTunes on July 8th 2011 and has six songs you absolutely need to hear, if you have not already.
As I stated in the 'Band of the Month' article I wrote for these guys back in May of 2012, their music will literally leave you speechless. On the band's Facebook page it says, "Their unique sound utilizes a mix of emotional vocals, melodic riffs and ambient keys, propelled by their Christian faith. The band encourages people to engage them in person and online, where they feel comfortable talking not just with fans, but those they consider their friends."
Although the exact release date is still to be determined, Message Through Motion recently announced that their first full length record, Earthshaker, is currently in the making. If you know what this band is capable of, this will certainly be one heck of a record.
So, their newest release, Walk On Water, is taking this week's 'Song of the Week' spot. Derek Dowling (vocals), Graham Stone (guitar / backing vocals), Alex Lyon (guitar) and Jordan Salmon (bass) have definitely shown us their talent which makes me stoked to hear this new record. These four are beyond incredible.
Message Through Motion recently released a live performance montage video for this week's 'Song of the Week', Walk On Water, which you can check out here:
See you next Sunday when we post the next 'Song of the Week'. Until then, check out Walk On Water and make sure you catch these guys live, very soon.
