Following Grammy and Dove Award nominations, a trio of best-selling major label albums and seven chart-topping singles alongside viral videos, Decyfer Down returns with the April 1 release of The Other
Side Of Darkness
through The Fuel Music. After more than a two year hiatus from recording and touring, the band, collectively Brandon Mills andChris Clonts (guitars), TJ Harris(vocals/guitar), Benjamin Millhouse (drums) and Chris Furr (bass), is reveling in its newfound freedom as an independent band to write, record, release and perform new music.
Making a conscious decision to shatter comfort zones, whether they be artistically or thematically, the band held a no-holds-barred approach to The Other Side Of Darkness.
"I know every artist says 'this is the best album we've ever done,' but there is definitely some of the best sounding stuff we've done in a long time just
because there are no limits," says Clonts. "We can write about whatever we want to write, and we're not in a box."
Already resonating with radio programmers, the lead single from the album, "Nothing More," is No. 15 and climbing after nine weeks on the
on the Billboard Christian Rock chart, while hitting No. 5 and heading toward the top of the Christian Music Weekly (CMW) chart. The song
is a fists-in-the-air anthem meant to encourage fans to move forward with God regardless of what might try to stand in the way.
"Darkness is a valley, but there's the light of God's love on the other side," says Clonts. "A lot of people we talk to say 'man, I've done too much bad
stuff to get to heaven and there's no way God could love me,' but that's not true. With all the subject matter we've talked about [on this album], we just
want people to know on the other side of darkness is God's love."

Add in "Fight Like This", a charting active rock single, which was featured as a promotional song for Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the...
