With a new range of vocals, talent and tour experience, Bread of Stone hits the mark with their highly anticipated, long awaited third album, "Saturate" produced by Grammy award winner Tedd T. (MuteMath, TobyMac, Britt Nicole) and Lynn Nichols (Delirious, The Elms)
Indonesian brothers Ben and Bill Kristijanto along with their other band mates Tim Barnes (bass) and Wesley Holt (drums) showcased their musical maturity from the previous albums showing the transparency of the guys. Their goal is to share what God has been doing in their lives personally and as a group.
The pop/rock 5 song EP features "Beautiful," the first single released to radio, which was inspired after a trip to Indonesia. "The song was lyrically inspired by one of the lessons learned there," said lead singer, Ben Kristijanto. "We spoke to a recent convert named Abraham and he told us that when he heard about the Gospel of Christ, he was in awe of how someone so great would come down for someone like him and take his desperate and bleak situation and turn into something beautiful." Other songs included on the EP: It's Time to Live, Parachute, The Answer, and the title track, Saturate.
Also when the band recently visited Indonesia to do mission work, something started stirring within them - a passion and love for their fellow countrymen started growing and a new vision emerged, "The Light Project."
"This ministry was something we started in order to reach out to the Muslim community in Indonesia," said guitarist, Bill Kristijanto. "We are working in partnership with a local church in Surabaya to help spread the love of Christ, one community at a time, more specifically, the scavengers."
The Light Project provides food, transportation, and other necessities to the Muslim community in Indonesia. They work with the poorest of the poor. They share God's love through action and deed, and through individual and personal encounters. As St. Francis of Assisi once said, "Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words."
Bread of Stone has toured with some of the top names in Christian music including the Newsboys, Superchick, Stellar Kart, DecembeRadio, Petra, Building 429, and many others.
