Their song "The Real," was played on Contemporary Christian Music radio stations, peaking in the Top 10 on radio stations throughout the United States. The band has toured with many other contemporaries from the Christian rock scene, including Superchick, Skillet, Hawk Nelson, Falling Up, and Number One Gun.

But Simon answered and said to Him, "Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net."
