Alpharetta, GA, May 24, 2009— You may have seen them back in the day as Reign, but if not, you can catch them all over again as the newly reformed 22FIVE. With a new show filled with rocking original songs and a few favorite cover songs, 22FIVE is now finally accepting concert dates for community and church events.

Between 1988 and 1992 Brett, Steve and Sean toured as the Christian rock band, Reign (along with keyboardist Matthew Carter and later guitarist Rob Carter). The band played for churches at camps, youth events, community events, and at festivals, including AgapeFest, IS Fest and Atlanta Fest, the Southeast's biggest Christian music festival. During that time Reign shared the stage with bands like The Newsboys, Jacob's Trouble, The Waiting, The Choir, Adam Again, The Throes, Violet Burning, Guardian, Freedom of Soul, Dig Hay Zoose, Mad at the World and others.

The band released one project called i of the storm and began work on a second release, tentatively titled Even in the Dry Season, but the band broke up in 1992 and the guys thought the days of making music together were over and gone.

But thanks to the beauty of God's providence, in early 2009, the Brett, Stephen and Sean happened to hook up with each other again through the power of the Internet, and 22FIVE was born. The group is currently scheduling new concert dates and recording a new project, tentatively called Taller Than Trees.

“It’s great being back together,” says drummer Stephen Bagley, who is also a Fulton County Police officer. “It’s like the magic is back and all the parts are falling into place. It’s almost like we never were apart. The new songs are sounding great, and are pretty much guaranteed to get crowds excited again.”

To request a date for a concert, event organizers and church leaders should contact Sean Taylor (404.429.7663) or email and request a promo pack or to see what dates are available, as dates will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
