This past week my tendonitis on my knee came back and it sucked because walking hurts and I really wanted to start doing squats again. Yesterday I was in line with some friends for the Orphan Black meet up in San Diego and the girl in front of us asked what happened to my knee because I was wearing a brace. I told her that I had tendonitis and she asked if she could pray for my knee. I was kinda weirded out by it but I said sure anyways. The pain usually lasts for a few weeks but since last night it hasn’t really been hurting much. I’m a pretty strong believer in the power of prayer so this was something really cool in my opinion.
To the girl that prayed over my knee, thanks so much!
If you haven’t seen it already, this is our lyric video for the first single off our new album “What Matters Most”. We’ve honestly put every scrap of ourselves into this record and almost lost our minds making it, but we did it. And we couldn’t be prouder of the outcome. This album will have every aspect of Contender that we loved about it, intensified. We’re also exploring completely new territory with a lot of the tracks. We truly can’t tell you guys enough how much we want you to hear these songs. That being said, we’ve seen that Tumblr is quickly becoming one of the best new ways to find out about bands you might not have heard of or just haven’t had a chance to listen to. Honestly, one of the best way to show support for bands that you love is simply to share them with your friends! Bands like us, who are constantly touring, really count on that word of mouth to get even more kids out to our shows. If you guys could share this video or another song of ours with a friend on Tumblr, twitter, Facebook, in person, etc., we would be extremely appreciative of all the support! Thank you.
