Originally from Arkansas, Antioch formed in 2003 by original members Aaron Hall (vocals/guitar), Nathan Hall (bass/vocals) and Kevin Burton (percussion). They soon relocated to the Dallas, TX area to finish school and further their music ministry.
The band released their much anticipated debut album "More to Life" on September 30, 2005. This 13 song album, featuring singles "Red Hat Society" and "Catalyst" gained quick success on local and internet radio stations, opening many doors of opportunity for Antioch.
More to Life 2005
In October 2005, Antioch qualified as semi-finalists in the National Shoutfest Talent Competition giving them the opportunity to share the main stage with artists such as Skillet, Newsong, Disciple and Seventh Day Slumber. Concerts such as this enabled Antioch to gain regional notoriety quickly as a band to be reckoned with.
