The DISCIPLES released an album titled, “Switch,” with 15 tracks.
Unlike other bands, they are not affiliated with any recording label. They released their album through digital copies FOR FREE. Check http://www.myspace.com/disciplesindonesia for details. When asked why their whole album is free, they answered, “Since salvation is free, so is our album.”
Quoting from the “About Us” section on their MySpace page:
“Let’s make it simple. We don’t want to write a long story about us, because our music is not about us. We are only the disciples. This myspace page, its music and content, are all dedicated to the GREAT TEACHER, FRIEND, FATHER, SAVIOUR, GOD, JESUS. So here we are, some little kids from Indonesia who love rhymes, music, and above all.. GOD. Our vision is to see lots and lots of young people know more about JESUS. If you like our music, praise JESUS, because what we have (talents/skills) came from HIM. God bless you all.”
