Bleach Lyrics * The Bleach Albums

bleach-musicLead guitarist Milam Byers describes Bleach as "Energetic and fun rock 'n roll!" They are a Christian punk band known for both their soft and hardcore punk sound. Only two of the band members today were from the original group that debuted in 1996.

Current Band Members:

Dave Baysinger (vocals)
Milam Byers (guitar)
Jerry Morrison (bass guitar)
Jared Byers (drums)
Sam Barnhart (guitar, vocals)

Former Band Members:

Matt Gingerich... Drums (til 2000?)
Bradley Ford... Keys, Guitar (til 1999)
Todd Kirby... Bass (til 1999)
Russ Fox... Bass (1999 - 2000)

Bleach's first album, Space, was released in November of 1996 by "Forefront Records." Since then, four more albums have been released and their last album, Farewell Old Friends will be released March 1, 2005.

In 2004, much to the disappointment of their many fans, the band announced that they would be calling it quits after the release of their final album in 2005.

On July 23, 2003, the band members of Bleach changed forever. Captain Josh Byers, brother to Jared and Milam Byers, was killed while serving in the military in Iraq. The loss was and is a huge heartache for each member of the band.

"It's impossible to talk to Bleach's members today without hearing awe-inspired stories of Josh's heroism and absolute sacrifice for his men and his country. At the memorial service they were not only learning of his acts of bravery, he had so modestly kept from his friends and family, but also of his complete support and adoration for the band. How he geared his men up for missions playing the Bleach songs and told everyone in his path about his five brothers and their musical endeavors." Tooth and Nail Records

Through this tragic loss, and the testimony of their fallen brother, the band came to realize the impact of their ministry on others. Their songs also became a source of comfort and encouragement to them as they tried to deal with their pain and hurt.

I would like to thank God for putting together the BLEACH group because they ROCK, and when I say ROCK. I really mean they ROCK. I guess it's because the way they sing, like that's their songs and the lyrics of the songs. The lyrics go with the tune of the song making you feel and understand what they are singing about. Like for example the song's "All That's Sweet" and "All to YOU". These two songs are just so touching and very fun to listen too. BLEACH continue singing because you guys ROCK dudes.
