So they are not dead, but they are probably better theologians in their lyrics than some pastors: Caedmon's Call brought back Derek Webb to record a new CD with them and a Tour to follow! I am so there!!!! [give Caedmon's Call a listen here and Derek Webb here] :
CAEDMON’S CALL ANNOUNCES BIG YEAR WITH NEW ALBUM, NEW LABEL AND FORMER MEMBER DEREK WEBB RETURNS FOR PROJECT AND TOUR
NASHVILLE, TN…May 22, 2007… Caedmon’s Call will be releasing their 15th project Overdressed on Aug. 28. The group invited former member turned solo singer/songwriter Derek Webb to take part in this project and upcoming tour.
“It was definitely a no-brainer to record with Derek again, especially when we [Caedmon’s Call] joined INO, which has been Webb’s label for years,” says Cliff Young. “We all sat down one day and thought ‘I wonder what it would be like to make an album together’.” “We have all grown so much over the past six years, and I know for me [and I’m sure the others] it was a natural process to switch to INO and then have Derek re-join us for this project and upcoming tour.”
Overdressed is an 12 song cd collection that is unlike any other Caedmon’s Call record, being organically acoustic with emphasis on rhythm while maintaining cleverly-written lyrics. All songs were co-wrote between Andrew Osenga, Randall Goodgame, Derek Webb and Webb’s wife, musician Sandra McCracken.
...Also, There will be an exclusive limited edition 14-song version of the cd that will be offered as a pre-order only. Pre-sales for the record will begin on June 15th so check back for more details on how to get your copy!
