Arena Rock Sign Sonseed!?!

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Jan 5, 2009 at 2:12 PM

You know this video. Of course you do, it's been a YouTube sensation for quite a while now (1.7 million views and counting) and there is no denying that no matter how goofy—and ska heavy—the song is, "Jesus Is My Friend" is a pretty catchy and a total guilty pleasure.

So in an interesting turn of events, local indie label Arena Rock (home to Talkdemonic, Woom, etc.) is actually releasing an EP from those earnest '80s Christians in Sonseed. The EP—which will contain "Jesus Is My Friend"—will be out later this year, and it's not the (secular) label's first forays into the murky depth of Christian music; as they previously released the excellent Larry Norman anthology, and Daniel Amos' underrated Darn Floor, Big Bite recording as well.

See? Jesus is for everyone.
