ISOR5In Search Of Reason formed in the beginning months of 2010 with the common goals of becoming a signed band, creating music with not just our ears and minds, but also, with our souls and hearts, and last but certainly not least, giving all of our accomplishments and glory back to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

More than a year later,the band has played countless shows reaching out in more than one way. They have reached to surrounding states on the East Coast and spread the word of Christ at every show changing numerous lives and strengthening believers with the power of music. The band has put out a 6-track Self-titled EP in the beginning of 2011 with their old lead singer. After he left, they sought out to go a different direction with their music. Around 8 months later, they put out a brand new 4-track EP entitled 'Common Lies of the Deciever'.The songs they write and have written deal with real-life situations that many teenagers struggle with but instead of just acknowledging the fact that the problem is there, show the kids how to find refuge in a better place and that place is under the grace of God. With 2 EP's under their belt,the band is now focusing on touring new areas and spreading the gospel to more people than they could ever imagine.
