"I'm not only humbled by the amazing numbers on the release of One Sided War, but I'm also blessed by the fact that it placed at #77 on the Billboard Top 200! We (Stryper) have always used the number 7 (Gods number) and it's a reminder to me that God is still in it. I've been doing this my entire life and although it's been a tough road at times, I've never lost my faith or my passion for music," explains Michael Sweet about his solo chart debut.
