Sackcloth & Ashes is a nationally and internationally recognized contemporary Christian pop/rock band. The band was formed out of a prior band relationship between S&A founder Bobby Burns and drummer Chad Hampton. Hampton, founder of All Together United (2013-2015), where Burns was lead singer from June 2014-end, came together in early 2016 to re-start under the re-launched banner of Sackcloth & Ashes. Sackcloth & Ashes was a change in both mission and vision the men felt were necessary in order to achieve true ministry they felt called to present. "Being on the same page with each other and having great, regular, open communication has been our success to date." Hampton says. "We have a goal with this music ministry and that goal is to have it actually BE a music MINISTRY, not just a band." Burns adds. Starting over has offered the chance to try new things creatively in the studio with a newer sound that will provide a greater energy and dynamic punch on stage.
Sackcloth & Ashes has a desire to produce passion and heart that will spread like a wildfire at every show, in every person that they encounter, in every place they go.
Through separate backgrounds of tragedy and abuse, Sackcloth & Ashes bring their stories to the stage along with a combination of high-energy music, powerful and thought provoking lyrics and an element of worship and ministry. These things are all key components to who and what Sackcloth & Ashes are and represent.
Their single, "Sons Of God", off their current album "REDEMPTION" has topped the Christian indie charts charting as high as #1 as well as been in both the Top 3 and Top 5 regularly on the charts. This single has reached over 23 countries besides the U.S. Being played on everything from conventional radio stations to online radio stations and programs, Sackcloth & Ashes has been able to reach around the world with their music.
