The Psalters are a Christian band which began in Philadelphia, USA, in 1997. Their music is sometimes described as folk punk. Notable not only for their music, but also for their radical lifestyle, the group is semi-nomadic (at one point living on the road for five years), and functions as an intentional Christian community.
Their lineup, which usually features about eight to ten musicians, is constantly changing, though a smaller group of core players have remained consistent long-term members. Over 100 different people have been part of the group at some point.
"we are the cry of the exodus.
there is no home for us here.
we are a nomadic tribe of psalters,
walking in the footsteps of ancients past
to the far corners of the present,
united as one voice against the
oppression within and without.
one more echo in the eternal song of our
First Love, our Hope, our Pillar of Fire."
*press and promoters please don't use this as the sole description of who we are....mainly because this isn't who we are ...
but rather a declaration of who we aspire to be in Christ. Plus it is vague and odd when read out of context
