Abandon Kansas crowd funding campaign is live! See it now!

Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. Campaigns are projects we are currently working on.

Campaigns - Take Action With Us

This is the stuff we are working on and some stuff we sell. This is your chance to support us if you like what we do.

Our Music

BC Music is an artist-friendly, new-model record company partnering with hard-working artists to provide creative, forward-thinking consultation and services to promote, release, and connect their music to fans. We aim to embody the honesty and community-minded, blue-collar work ethic of the original indie label, while competitively releasing music that we love in a post-modern music economy.


Honest conversation from Matt, Toby, Joey and guests. We say a lot of stupid stuff for sure, but good or bad, this is how we really talk. We cover everything from Emery road experiences to our family lives and struggles. We also dive head first into deep and personal interviews with our guests.

#51 Jeremy Spring of Abandon Kansas

Jeremy makes a great addition to the show for two reasons. One, because he has great rapport with the guys since being on tour with them and two, because he has some really heavy and troubling stuff going on in his head and he talks very openly about it. Marriage, addiction, anxiety, depression, fear, failure and being a pastors kid all play into what he is dealing with and writing about on the new Abandon Kansas album.

#50 Jen Smith- The Unveiled Wife

Jen Smith is a female blogger and writer at www.unveiledwife.com who dedicates her time to encourage women to be the best wife they can be by sharing openly her personal experiences and biblical principles. She speaks openly about her sex life and troubles she has had in her marriage.

#49 Derek Webb

After Toby did some major trash talking, and downright criticism of Derek Webb on a previous episode, the guys now have the chance to talk to him man to man on the show. We discussed the need for and the reasons not to be open and transparent on the internet. Needless to say, BC is not quite on the same page as Derek, but Derek's positions are well thought out and respectable. Enjoy.

#46 Godless and Chuck from Metalsucks.net

Matt and Toby recently sat down at the MetalSucks podcast studio and had an unformatted convo in which they discussed weather or not Christian Metal is legit, or just a gimmick to make money, and also if God is real or just a gimmick to control people and spread hate. Please go listen to the first half of the convo on their podcast before this episode as it will make more sense. This episode is the second half of the convo. http://www.metalsucks.net/2014/11/17/76-matt-toby-bad-christian-podcast-emery/
