New Artist of the Year Dove Award nominee, About A Mile, consisting of brothers Adam, Luke and Levi Klutinoty, released their self-titled album amidst widespread acclaim, summer 2014. The recording quickly launched onto the retail charts to become 2014’s biggest selling Christian album debut from a new artist. The band returns today with the rock anthem, “Taking Back,” the first new music since signing with producer Ian Eskelin’s Radiate Music.
Hinting at new music to come as the band is in the studio now working on their sophomore album, About A Mile’s “Taking Back” hits Rock/CHR Christian radio today, goes to digital retailers Oct. 30 through The Fuel Music distribution and will be released as a Fight Club-themed music video Oct. 30.
I'm taking the hits, straight to the chin
White knuckle fists, strike again and again
But I won't be afraid, cos I know who wins
If God is for me, who can stand against...
“We're taking back the right to be bold in a world of compromise,” says About A Mile frontman and guitarist, Adam. “It's time for us to be the bold men of valor we are created to be! We're not only unafraid of the Giants in this life, but we're also coming after them on a mission to take back the peace they've stolen from our minds, the dreams they've taken from our hearts and the confidence they've tried to extinguish from the warriors of an undefeated God! We're not afraid!”
The song finds About A Mile rejoining Grammy-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning Producer of the Year, Ian Eskelin, who produced several cuts on the band’s debut, and who heads the Radiate imprint.
“From the moment I saw About A Mile play a show in a church basement for 30 people, I was hooked,” says Eskelin. “Their passion for delivering the truth and their ‘leave it all on stage’ style is compelling and contagious. I love these guys.”
“I feel extremely blessed and lucky to be working with Ian Eskelin!” exclaims Adam. “We've been through a lot together and have a common interest to make the best music possible. He's also just a great man that we respect, who works with the underdog that has a message he knows the world needs to hear. That's rock ‘n’ roll!”
About A Mile, whose name originates from the belief that Jesus carried his cross “about a mile,” has carried their message from coast-to-coast. Lauded for their musicianship, authenticity and labeled “musical chemistry perfected” by one critic, the band has hit some of the nation’s biggest venues as a featured band on Winter Jam.
