Mosaic Church in Highland to host another Christian rock concert

Mosaic Church in Highland will play host to its second Christian rock concert in as many months.

About 400 people turned out when the band 7eventh Time Down brought its “The One I’m Running To Tour” to Mosaic Church on Sunday, March 22, along with new artists, Cloverton.

Now, the church, which is located at 1317 Pestalozzi St. in Highland, is bringing the bands Ashes Remain and About a Mile to play a concert on Friday, May 15. Doors open at 6 p.m. Music will start at 7 p.m. Cost is $10 for general admission. You can purchase your tickets on Mosaic Church’s website.

Ashes Remain was formed in Baltimore, Md., in 2002.

According to the band, which includes members Rob Tahan, Josh Smith, Jonathan Hively, Ben Kirk and Ryan Nalepa, much of its Fair Trade Services debut What I’ve Become was written from the perspective of what it is like to feel as if there is no hope — “where you are your own worst enemy and ultimately what it looks like to go from that very real and dark place to one where there is hope and step into the light,” the band says on its Facebook page.

“That journey from dark to light isn’t always a swift one and sometimes has to be walked many times, but it is a journey that the band is familiar with and feels called to go on with their fans.”

As lead vocalist Josh Smith put it, “We’re not role models. We’re just broken people who need Jesus.”

About a Mile is a band of brothers — Adam (guitar, vocals), Levi (drums) and Luke Klute (bass) — from the western Pennsylvania town of Butler.

The band, which takes its name from the distance Jesus carried His cross, released its self-titled debut album last summer.
