Tom Milnes Returns
Wed., Jun. 27. 2012 12:07pm EDT
ApologetiX alumnus guitar gunslinger Tom Milnes will return this weekend for his first concerts with the band since retiring last December. While he's been away, Tom M. has been focusing on his role as a youth pastor while also working at a Salvation Army camp.
Tom M. will fill in for Todd Waites at our Friday and Sunday shows, although Todd will play at the Saturday show. Tom Tincha will be at all three. Later in July, while Todd is on a mission trip in Honduras, Tom M. will fill in for him again the weekends of July 20-22 and 27-29.
First joining ApologetiX in October 2008, Tom M. played and/or sang on our four-most recent albums, Recovery, The Boys Aren't Backin' Down, Soundproof, and Wise Up and Rock.
Earlier this year, he was our opening act for a show in March and ran sound for us for two shows in April, but this will be his first time reprising his guitarist role with us. If you've seen him in concert before, you know that he's a barrel of laughs.
He and Tinch forged a formidable twin-guitar attack as TNT. It'll be cool to see them in action together again.
Tom M. has also been very active for ApologetiX in the studio the past several months. You can read more about that below.
