Final Card Random is not ashamed to bring their faith into the music they create. Defining themselves as Indie Alternative Post-Hardcore with a creamy acoustic filling, they are able to give their audience something more and something new. Final Card Random's inspired and heart-driven lyrics along with dynamic melodies and memorable rhythyms reflect the passion that they want to spread to their audience.
Final Card Random consists of four young Christians that have given their lives to serving the Lord and serving others. They go to various churches in Virginia Beach serving as youth leaders and members of their music ministries. With Kyle and Matt on guitar and vocals, Austin on bass, and Shane hitting stuff with sticks, they know that they are fufilling God's purpose and glorifing His name through the musical talents He has given them.
Since early 2004, Final Card Random has been headlining for churches, youth groups, coffee houses, battles, and various other shows throughout the Eastern US. They have also opened for acts such as Forever Changed and Pillar. With each show, they display their individuality through an energetic stage presence, strong sound, and especially personable humour. They even won an award for 'Best Band Name' at a large, local battle.
In 2004, they released 'At a Distance EP,' a simple 5-song demo to impact a message for all that will listen. A message that the revolution for Jesus Christ will overthrow this world anew and that it should be carried forward without fear of persecution or without doubt and constraint.In 2006 they released a new project, the "Walls built to Fall" EP.
