Evangelicals


Evangelicals are Josh Jones (ex-student body president/homecoming king, age 24), Kyle Davis (straight-A professional writing student, Oklahoma University, age 21) and Austin Stephens (drummer extraordinaire who has been playing in local bands since he learned to crawl, age 26), all native Oklahomans. In fact, Austin and Josh have known each other for upwards of a decade, attending middle school in Norman together. Originally the brainchild of Josh Jones (and much of the original tracking of So Gone was Jones on his own), Evangelicals quickly evolved into a full-time band. In just one year time they have managed to play more than 40 shows and record So Gone and a healthy chunk of a follow-up album.

So Gone is undeniable. It's overly caffeinated, bursting at the seams, and ultimately it demands to be heard. There's a persistence, an unrestrained, driving, force-of-nature quality to the album that could somehow only have come from a town like Norman, OK. Made in an insular world, one that comes without the infestation of media, without the buzz of the music industry, So Gone brings us new sounds for a new day.

Evangelicals So Gone is an excellent album, it simply must be experienced. Certainly one of the candidates for the best of 2006.
