This is Grey Holiday. This is Josh, Steven, Matt and R.T. Four friends, make that four best friends, comprise this brand-new, creative, smart and often quirky pop/rock band that want to center their lives on God, and build the kind of community they feel Christ would want all of us to have. Lead vocalist, guitarist and pianist Matt shares, "We're really passionate about the community we've been given. The friendship between the four of us is our foundation, with God in the center."
From the driving, "Glorious," reminding us that God's glory is all around, to the atmospheric, emotional, "You Belong To Me," The Glorious Revolution is a fresh, unique and heartfelt collection of songs dealing with the common struggle we all deal with: holding ever-tight to our selfish desires and worldly possessions, to the point that we miss what God has to offer - a life of freedom.

Brilliant Breakout Album| Posted April 25, 2008
I don't know what took me so long to jump on this album. Perhaps only having 6 songs seemed like it wasn't enough material to embrace, but I was completely missing out. Most people have heard the breakout song "Let Go" and it's truly a highlight and one of my top 10 favorite songs of the year. Grey Holiday's musical style resembles NEEDTOBREATHE and Jackson Waters, 2 of my favorite new Christian "southern rock" bands.
Laura Sproull from jesusfreakhideout perfectly captures the theme of "Let Go" being the "tendency we have as Christians to clutch all of our hopes and dreams" ("I've been holding on to things like dreams that never seem to die"), "and how we need to just let go and let God" ("What I need is faith"). Laura was very kind to give me permission to quote her. Please enjoy the rest of her excellent review here.
All in all, these are the best 6 songs on one album I've heard all year as there are no filler songs. The opening hooks you with "Glorious" and swells to a beautiful close with "Low" with the rocking "Revolution" adding to the anthemic clever album title involving both the 1st and 4th tracks. Catchy, deep introspective biblical lyrics and completely worth the ep-priced investment. A brilliant breakout album in my opinion.
