History

Early Years

From Dust began as a two-piece in 1996, with vocalist Nick Bank and acoustic guitarist Jeff Lee playing original worship songs for their youth group. Bank was reluctant to sing because he didn't like being in front of people.

The From Dust EP

The band released the six-track The From Dust EP in November 2003. The EP featured the songs Pardon Me, Quench, Who I Really Am, Thy Keeper, and You. At the release party, the band would debut a new song, entitled In the Garden, which would later appear on the Sown In Weakness album. That same year, Cole Johnson replaced Justin Christensen on drums. In 2004, Kent Peters replaced Kevin Miller and the lineup has held steady ever since.

Sown In Weakness

The band released their first full-length album, Sown In Weakness, which featured ten songs, in 2005. The album included seven previously unrecorded songs (In the Garden, Numb No More, Bleeding Mediocrity, Den of Thieves, Jacob, and Grasp Me) and three songs that appeared on The From Dust EP.

Don't You Dare and Beyond

In spring 2008, From Dust recorded the song Don't You Dare with the Green Light Group and released it as the first "single" from their next album, tentatively scheduled for 2010. A music video accompanying the song, co-directed by Carissa Hawley and Tom White, premiered in spring of 2009. The band has also has begun to play a few songs from the upcoming album at their shows, most notably So Far Gone and Rise Up.
