ApologetiX in East PA, West PA, Ohio, Stores Every
Wed., Aug. 21. 2002 1:37pm EDT

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.

Good news! Our brand new CD, "Grace Period," is back from the manufacturer and should be at your local store any day now if it's not there already. Sorry, we're a little bit late on that one, but we think you'll find it was worth the wait.

We will not be making the CD available through the website for a couple weeks, because we want to give the stores the first chance at selling the CD for two reasons.
1. They pre-ordered thousands of copies, and then we made them wait, and they had to tell a lot of people to come back later.
2. If the stores see you coming in for the CD, they'll know there's a demand for ApologetiX CDs and be more likely to stock them.

**About the August 25 opening group, TRI (three teenage sisters with a backing band), our guitarist/producer, Karl Messner, says: "We've played with a lot of local bands, and this is the first one that I really thought was going to make a real splash. We just love these kids (youngest bandmember: 13) and their upbeat pop/rock harmonies are second only to their hearts for ministry. Two... No THREE thumbs up."
