SONSOFDAY started 2009 with a bang, taking home the Best Pop Video of the Year award for their debut music video "This Place" at the 2008 Gospel Music Channel Video Awards on December 26th. The four Belonozhko brothers make up the Portland-based Christian rock group, which spent 2008 traveling the USA to promote their debut album Fragile People
(Red Hammer Records/Infinity Music Distribution), which is now in stores.
"We are blown away by the support our fans have showed voting 'This Place' as the 'Best Pop Video' of 2008," says lead vocalist/guitarist Vlad. "And we're so thankful to the Gospel Music Channel and all of the numerous shows and networks that have aired this video extensively."
The band shot six music videos for the project, including "Fragile People" and the award-winning "This Place," both of which are in regular rotation on numerous video shows and networks, including JCTV, Gospel Music Channel and others. The videos were combined with exclusive behind-the-scenes and touring footage for a full-length DVD release now available exclusively at the official online store at www.sonsofday.com
Though SONSOFDAY has certainly earned a well-deserved vacation, they are pressing forward with the start of the new year, logging studio time to record the follow-up to their successful debut album for independent label 1964 Records. While still taking shape, the untitled album is sure to include the road-tested songs "Revolution" and "People Get Ready" which have become fan favorites in recent months.
Vlad, Roman, Bogdan and Scott Bolonozhko immigrated from the Ukraine to the United States in 1992 in pursuit of a better life and religious freedom, which Ukraine was only just beginning to experience after the fall of Communism. The band was formed in 2005, and soon after they were in the studio recording their debut album which released in late 2007. SONSOFDAY toured relentlessly in support of the project, including major festivals such as Creation West, where they took first place in the 2008 Creation West Indie Band Talent Search.
