Raging Storm Records proudly welcomes BoughtXBlood as its first new signing in over five years. The signing follows a string of recent accomplishments for the band, including a tour stop on the HM Magazine Stage at Creation Fest 2017, an upcoming show with P.O.D. at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival Pre-Party, and the recent release of their new single ‘I’m Done’, a song that takes a tough stance against sin and shows just how much the bands faith impacts their music and their lives.
“I am honored to have the chance to earn not only the business, but the friendship of a band like BoughtXBlood” says label founder Jason Scannell. “These guys represent exactly what we want in a band: hard work, creative music, and a true desire to share their faith. It’s all too easy for bands in this genre to tone down their beliefs, but they stand firm. From the moment I heard BXB, I was not just entertained but convicted. The whole team at Raging Storm stands behind them and their message. We look forward to coming alongside this band and growing together”.
BXB writes: “BoughtXBlood is elated to sign with Raging Storm! We truly feel that God has led us to this point, as He has given, and taken away, in order that His will for BXB be accomplished. It is clear to us that RSR believes in The Message we are trying to convey. The label staff has been extremely helpful and supportive, which confirms for us that this will be a productive partnership that will grow us as a band, and a ministry, while furthering RSR’s efforts to expand the label. We are looking forward to greater opportunities than might have been available to us as a DIY band. The sky is the limit and we cannot wait to create more music and deeper relationships with everyone at Raging Storm Records!”
BoughtXBlood formed in 2013 when former bandmates Alvin Triplett (vocals) and Josh Hall (guitar) joined forces again to create a powerful, new group. They were soon joined by Cecil Johnson (drums), Dane Harrison (guitar), and Joe Graybill (bass) creating a group whose passion and talent is immediately evident. Their music is hard hitting and unapologetic as they seek to encourage others through the life-changing power of the Gospel.
The name “BoughtXBlood” is a declaration – we have been bought by HIS blood and we desire to give God all the glory for everything we do. As 1 Corinthians 6:20 states: “For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body”.
“We are interested in sharing The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have been bought by HIS blood, and we desire to give God all the glory for everything we do.”
