New APX Parodies Coming Next Week

Although we only have one concert scheduled this month, we've been making more music than ever. We already have about 40 songs in the works for 2014, and there may be even more coming your way, Lord willing.
Two of those tracks should finally be ready as downloads by the end of the weekend. Our producer, Bill Hubauer, is scheduled to finish them this weekend.
Here's a sneak preview:
This spoof completes a suite of songs about someone not known for his sweetness -- the scriptural strongman Samson. Yes, we've already released three songs about his exploits ("I Know a Riddle," "Play Fair, Delilah," and "Enter Samson"), but "Brush" fills in some of the missing pieces in the saga, as Samson shares stories of three feats of strength he performed after he met the lion but before he met Delilah.
Zephaniah wrote one of the least-quoted books of the Bible (aside from verse 3:17). So, who was he, anyway? More than just the guy between Habakkuk and Haggai. There's pretty strong evidence that Zephaniah was the great, great grandson of King Hezekiah, which would also make him a distant cousin of Josiah, the king who ruled while he was prophesying. In fact, many scholars believe that Zephaniah and his fellow prophet Jeremiah may have been at least partially responsible for the reforms Josiah implemented.
Watch for an announcement soon telling you how to get these two new tunes.
