NEW ALBANY — Saturday is a big day for the band Second Perception. Not only will the group, comprised of Southern Indiana residents, be performing in front of friends and supporters, but it will also be celebrating the release of its new full length CD, “Beauty in a Broken Heart,” which contains 11 new songs. The band will sell copies of the CD for $10.
The band has been together for two years and has picked up quite a following through YouTube videos and by performing throughout the area, including at Holiday World’s Rock the World last year. Members say they are excited about the release of the CD on Saturday.
“Every song in different and there is great meaning behind it,” said Josh Sears, a New Albany resident and the group’s guitarist. ‘It’s not a CD where every song sounds the same.”
While the band is considered Christian Rock, lead singer Joel Jackson said their music is not limited in scope.
“We try to get a message across. We are Christians who are in a rock band,” Jackson said. “A lot of people go through hard times but through the pain try to grow through it and become stronger. Life just doesn’t have to be painful.
“No matter the struggle you can grow and find something positive. We want that to be our message.”
Sears and Jackson said they both grew up listening to music and attending church and were always interested in forming a band.
“I always liked rock-style music,” Sears said. “I am a Christian and just blended those two together.”
The band is made up of four members along with technical crew of two. They will play from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at Eastside Christian Church in Jeffersonville.
