Christian rock band Building 429's seventh studio album, Listen To The Sound
, was released on May 10, 2011 through Provident Music Group and its title track was released as the disc's lead single. The band's guitarist/vocalist Jason Roy is also a pastor at the Grace Community Church in Clarksville, Tennessee. He told us
about the song: "'Listen to the Sound' actually was written, as most of the songs on this record were written, out of my small group, literally just kind of walking through daily life with my own people. I was getting ready to write this record, I ran into some people at church who made major, major mistakes in their lives, but people who, on the outside, seem to have everything together.
To be honest, when you're on the road as much as we were, and busy as much as we are, you don't get to really get into the real details of life. You kind of just get by and say, 'God is good. May he bless you and keep you. We'll see you next time.' But as a worship pastor, I'm in the middle of real life with real people every single day. So I got into a place where I was with these people, and their marriage began to fall apart. It was because of some sin issues in their lives. I remember getting really mad as one of the pastors going, 'Now, what's the deal with this? I don't understand why they would do something that dumb.' And my pastor was like, 'Jason, you're not that much different from them. One choice takes you just a degree off the straight and narrow path, and before you know it, you're way off and you have no idea how to get back.' What occurred to me was that he was right, what I had missed was the fact that it's just one decision that leads to another. And so every single day it's a war to hold into this faith that we desperately need."
