The Museum's Project 'My Only Rescue' Coming in August, New Single on Radio, Summer Tour Dates Set
The Museum band composed of Ben Richter, lead vocals , guitars, Josh Kirk on drums, programming, Chris Brink on bass, background vocals, and Loyd Rieves on electric guitar, background vocals will be releasing their sophomore project titled My Only Rescue, August 28, 2012 on BEC Recordings.
The first single "Love Will Find You," is already playing on radio. The single was inspired by band's friend who felt endless distance from God because of the sins and mistakes he made. The song became even more relevant to the band members during their trip to the Philippines with Compassion International.

The band comments, "There we were, after multiple long flights, a two hour van ride, a ferry ride, and then a rainy ride on boats so small only four people could fit on each one - to get to an island with just four families on it. We were literally on the other side of the world, and God was already there. On His behalf, Compassion was there showing His love to people who had survived a terrible hurricane. Although we had written the lyric months earlier, we knew this would be the theme of the record; 'You can run 'til you can't find home. You can sail 'til you can't see land. There is no place you can go; Love will find you where you are.'"
The title song "My Only Rescue," is significant especially to Ben Richter. On the day when Richter was about to record vocal parts for this song, he was weakened with a stomach virus. The young couple was expecting their first child, and on the same day Richter received a phone call from his wife. "She called to tell me that she was losing the baby. She miscarried three days later. It was just devastating to us. The lyrics I had written just a few weeks before were now ministering to me. 'Give me the faith to wait on You, give me peace to be still. You're the only hope I lean on, give me faith to wait on You," said Richter.
Richter adds, "We are called to write songs for the church, Whether they are heard on the radio, at one of our shows, or on the album, we hope that our purpose rings out loud and clear. If we are not living lives that bring glory to Christ and that show His love to the hurting and vulnerable, we might as well not bother singing worship songs at all. In Amos God says 'Away from me with the noise of your songs, but let justice roll on like a river.' Do we really want to create something that adds to that noise? We put a lot of thought into every lyric and every song that we write to make sure that it is something that is true to our hearts and, more importantly, true to God's word."
