Do you ever listen to an album and discard it, only to revisit it at a later time and completely blow you away? Whether you weren't emotionally ready for it or didn't give the record the proper listen it truly deserved, somehow it suddenly clicked with you. I recently came across this issue with Brighten's latest EP, I'll Always Be Around. For myself, I don't think I was mature enough to listen and actually get the music. Yes, it was only released in August 2011, but the world moves so fast, seasons change and so do we. I've gone in and out of relationships, been through some of the most incredible experiences I've ever seen, and am about to make life-altering decisions regarding my...

Lydia has posted a blog saying that they will be unable to finish the rest of their dates with Brighten but will be posting a live set on bamboozletv.com within the next couple weeks.
Message From The BandDear friends, I'm SO sad to announce that we will not be playing the rest of the dates posted for the Brighten tour. We were lucky enough to make it through the entire bamboozle roadshow tour & bamboozle festivals this year with just one van breakdown, but unfortunately after making it this far its back giving us trouble again, not allowing us to continue the last few days of this tour. BUT with that said, we are currently headed to the Stone Pony in NJ to do a live taping TONIGHT of...

Brighten was recently involved in a van accident.
Message From The Bandwhoa! holy moly... we are safe, but its quite a story. we have had over night drives for the past 3 nights and have been sleeping 7 people in a van at rest stops because we have no time to get hotels. so all in all, no sleep for brighten or a rocket to the moon (he is riding with us on tour!). this morning i, jimmy, woke up at about 7am after sleeping
for a few hours and decided to drive. at about 8am i woke up after slipping
away for a split second causing us to veer into a grassy ditch on the highway.
the weird thing was that i wasnít very sleepy. it was just instant. pure exhaustion? i dont know. anyways, on with...

Jimmy, drummer of Brighten, will be heading to Africa this summer to teach soccer to children. A donation link to help pay for expenses can be found on the band's myspace.
MessageI'm going to Nairobi, Kenya to teach soccer camps and hang out with children in some of the worst slums in the world. I've been wanting to do this for so long and God finally opened the door for me to go. I will be leaving July 22nd and be back around August 12th. My trip will cost $3,000 for airfare and day to day cost while being there (2/3 airfare). I really need your help! It will be a life-changing experience and I believe that this is the perfect way to show people Jesus Christís love first hand. Thank you...
