It was a Big Ol’ Lawn Party

What a morning! Service was held outdoors for Pentecost Sunday, followed up by the official launch of dbdb’s “Awakening“, with the brand-new album performed in its entirety. The late spring weather was perfect and the atmosphere was made all the more festive with chicken barbeque and a bouncy house for the young’uns. Enjoy some photos of the day. Then head over to the WBCC Facebook group page for even more fun pics.

dbdb Awakening with Hot New CD

(Update: Awakening is now available on CD Baby, iTunes and Spotify! All proceeds go toward the hiring of our Youth Pastor.)

On Sunday, June 8th, dbdb releases it’s third CD (and first in seven years!), Awakening. This latest work features  a loosely unified theme and an unusual cast of characters: A paranoid executive digs a pit in his backyard. A religious fundamentalist realizes his friends are running away from him. A bruised and weary woman finds her voice and her freedom in the pouring rain.  A mortified hothead tries to turn the clock back 24 hours.

Members of the band and the few fans in-the-know are calling Awakening dbdb’s best effort yet. The release is dbdb’s first to be available for download on iTunes and Amazon. In another first, the CD includes a link to a companion manifesto, complete with lyrics, photos, and background on the writing of each song.
