Seattle, Wa –August 29, 2012 –This week BEC Recordings’ The Museum released their sophomore label project, My Only Rescue, produced Pete Kipley (Phil Wickham, Matthew West, MercyMe,).
This album follows the well-received debut Let Love Win (2010), which delivered two hit singles: “My Help Comes from the Lord” and “Allelujah.”
Celebrating their street week, The Museum is traveling to cities across the South visiting radio stations and sharing their current radio single “Love Will Find You.” Yesterday they spent the morning on air with American Family Radio hosts JJ and Ron. They also stopped by Faith Village to perform acoustic tunes and talk about their new album. Fans can also listen to the band talk about My Only Rescue on the NewReleaseTuesday Podcast as well as hear acoustic songs on HearItFirst.com.
Here’s media outlets are saying about The Museum’s My Only Rescue:
“This album overflows with the pursuit of justice, while urging listeners to break out of comfort zones. There are hints of worship throughout, but it's all wrapped around massive power chords, escalating electronics, and arena-ready balladry.”  
- Christianity Today, 4-star-review
“With their sophomore effort, My Only Rescue, the band seems to try and find themselves a bit more with a fairly varied mix of accessible tunes.”
- New Release Tuesday
“What makes this band stand out is the whole tone of the album. The album has an air of wanting to do it right and say things in a gentle and sincere way.”
- Louder Than The Music
“We're calling it now—My Only Rescue has the potential to be one of ‘those’ albums. By ‘those’ we mean one of those albums you go to when life gets tough. The songs seem custom-made to pour the truth and shout the voice of God into our lives.”
-YW - YouthWalk Magazine
About My Only Rescue:
Refocused in their calling and purpose, the band concentrated on writing as a group. Through their dedication to bring the best possible songs to life on My Only Rescue, The Museum accomplished exactly what they set out to do.
“We are called to write songs for the church,” front man Ben Richter adds. “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.”
Beyond improved sonics and musicianship, Richter believes that the new album takes the band a significant step further in both their creative and spiritual calling. The band’s passion for bringing God’s love to the ends of the earth is evident in their partnerships with the poverty relief agency Compassion International and the anti-slavery ministry Not For Sale (NFS). The Museum also penned a theme song for that NFS (“Not For Sale”) featured on the new release.

About The Museum:
It might not sound like it, but the Georgia based pop band The Museum is actually named after a revolution. During a 2008 musical mission trip to Romania, drummer Josh Kirk found himself at a ceremony commemorating the end of Communism in that country twenty years earlier. “There was a small, humble museum near the square that told the story,” he recalls. “Turns out it was a group of Christians that actually brought about that political and social revolution.” Twenty years later the political changes were celebrated but the spiritual center of the revolution had been mostly forgotten. Kirk saw little evidence of Christian influence in the culture. “That little museum remained though,” he adds, “offering a glimpse into the kind of faith that can turn a nation upside down.”
Shortly thereafter Kirk teamed up with singer and songwriter Ben Richter to form a modern pop band. Two additions to the duo rounded out what is now The Museum with the addition of bassist Chris Brink in 2010 and guitarist Loyd Rieves in 2011.
The Museum released their BEC Recordings’ label debut, Let Love Win, in 2010.  The band has been featured in media outlets such as CNN.com Religion, Blogcritics, CBN News, CCM Magazine, HearItFirst.com, Plan B Blog - Pastor Pete Wilson, NewReleaseTuesday.com and Youth Walk.
