The band The Undivided, a local Christian rock band will be filming a music video for their song titled “Change” in downtown Columbia this weekend.
The band will be filming with Fisher Films Production Company where they’ve planned to shoot in various locations downtown Columbia, and also in Yemassee, SC, the town known for where movie Forest Gump was also filmed. The large cast is going to include along with Tony Byroads and his band members, Michael Bingham, a pastor from Pond Branch United Methodist church, an interpretive dance team called BOLD (which stands for Believe Our Lord Delivers) from Aiken, SC.  Johnny Horshack, the radio DJ from Columbia’s WARQ Rock 93.5 and youth from the Gilbert, SC High School.
The Undivided was formed Tony Byroads, former vocalist and dj of rock band Crossfade who also are from Columbia.  Tony has previously publicly stated that he left Crossfade because of a Christian tour bus driver that gave him a strong message about some things happening while on their tour and also in turn led him to rededicating himself to his walk with Christ. Tony formed the Undivided in 2009 and has been writing, recording and playing large Christian festivals as well as the local clubs and churches and many charity events.  The long awaited album for The Undivided titled “Change” is finally scheduled for release independently beginning of March.  The song “Change” has already been playing on WARQ’s rock 93.5.  The radio station has already spun 3 of their songs,  tracks titled “This Fire Burns”, “The Game” and now “Change”.
Tony hopes the video for Change will do well with promotion of the album as well as send a message. Like the lyrics of his songs, the video could make you think about things in a few different ways, it will even have a twist ending.
The band and links to their online social sites as well as an I–Tunes store that has the song “Change”, can be found on their new website at

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
