Building 429, made up of Jason Roy (lead vocalist), Jesse Garcia (guitar), Aaron Branch (bass) and Michael Anderson (drums), is united in its desire to be bold about sharing its faith and wants to encourage others to do so without fear or hesitation. The group has learned from experience that when God calls you, he equips you and you can do great things for the kingdom.
For Building 429’s latest album, We Won’t Be Shaken, the band offers a fresh approach, yet delivers the absolute substance listeners want with the new project. “We feel like we’ve made the most focused record of our career,” Roy says. “We knew what we were trying to accomplish. We wanted to push the limits of what people expect us to do while maintaining the absolute laser focus on meeting our current fans where they are.”
Passionate vocals, skilled musicianship and insightful songwriting have become the cornerstones of the Building 429 sound and they are in abundance on We Won’t Be Shaken. “We are as committed as we’ve ever been to the body of Christ and to the church,” states Roy. “And for us, we don’t think that means we have to be less cool or less fun or less energetic. In fact we feel like we can be everything we want to be and speak directly to the church while at the same time having music that speaks to people who are non-believers. As we headline shows this year, we want to make sure the gospel is clear and we want to love on people.”
With the album’s bold declarations and driven inspiration, the band has never had a more effervescent message to offer to listeners than it has now. “We know who we are better than ever before,” drummer Michael Anderson says, “who we are as men, who we are as husbands, who we are as Christ followers and that just pours into the music.”
