"To Infinity"

"As with all truly transcendent art, the souled-out, funky surf rock of the Kansas Bible Co. embodies a culture all its own. Their music, their message, and their lifestyle both as a group and as eleven individuals exist as exercises in maximalism. From what I’ve heard so far of debut Ad Astra Per Aspera (“Through adversity to the stars”), each track stands alone as a mission statement, with the couplet “To hell with moderation/ Everything to infinity” from “Moderation” tying it all together. KBCo.’s fully fleshed-out yet balanced sound recalls the heyday of Detroit rock and the Dionysic worldview of other riotous, sizeable collectives like Broken Social Scene and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, as they seamlessly merge a five-piece horn section with chugging, reverb-friendly guitars and vocals that croon and carouse in equal measure. Emerging from various locales in the Midwest and converging in the unheralded haven of Goshen, Indiana, theirs is a welcome, habitable star in a galaxy where the Holy Trinity orbits its supposed opposite: sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I’m happy to keep coming back to the Bible for the horns." - C.J. Hinojosa, "Strip Mines" - Strip Mines

Surf Rock Trilogy (2011) EP

Hotel Chicamauga (2012) LP



Featuring a five-man horn line, three guitars, two percussionists and one bass, the Kansas Bible Company are stretching the boundaries of space and time. Surf, soul, prog, hip-hop, classical music, pep band, and good old fashioned rock and roll are just some of KBC's many influences. The band entered the world with their first album, Ad Astra Per Aspera, then later the Surf Rock Trilogy EP. The band's newest album Hotel Chicamauga was released this November. Originally from Goshen, Indiana, KBC's members now spend their time between Goshen and Nashville, Tennessee.
