Former STRYPER Bassist To Perform With WHITECROSS

Former STRYPER bassist Tim Gaines will be joining WHITECROSS to perform at the Beyond The Mountain Music Festival on August 27, 2005 in San Bernardino, CA. Proceeds from the concert will go to benefit the Christian people of Alcance Subterraneo (underground outreach) in Mexico City who suffered financial devastation last November during a concert promotion mishap. Many other well-known Christian metal bands will be playing at this two-day event, including HOLY SOLDIER, GUARDIAN, and BARREN CROSS.

In other news, Gaines has been busy for the last four months with his new job at Provident Music Group. "Provident is the largest Christian record distribution label," Tim writes on his web site. "Apart from my busy work schedule, I have been co-writing songs with some BIG-name Christian artists. I can't say who they are at this time, but they have had #1 crossover singles and won multi Grammy awards. I hope that maybe some, or even one, of my songs will end up on their next album projects. Just a foot in the door at this time, but at least some people are kind enough to give me the courtesy of considering writing music with me... something I never had before."

Gaines is still working on his wife Irene's two full-length CD projects, including an acoustic worship album of original music and an album of songs that he and his wife have written together.
