6th Hour is a hard rock band out of Decatur, AL that brings with them the message of last chances and redemption, even when all seems lost. Their music is a driving blend of classic rock with a modern rock edge, and their lyrics are written with an honest perspective on faith and how to find God in every circumstance, no matter how bleak. 6th Hour’s sound is defined by Front-man Frank Gardner’s honest lyrics and powerful vocals along with lead guitarist Jake Standridge and his gritty power solos reminiscent of 80’s metal. Backed up by the hard-hitting beats of drummer Jeff “Rounder” Johnson and bassist Rob Gamble, 6th Hour is a force to be reckoned with among rock bands.

The band formed in December of 2005 with Frank and Jake coming together with three other members after Frank’s salvation in November of that year. Prior to 6th Hour, Frank had spent several years as a drug dealer with a heavy cocaine addiction that led him on a downward spiral that cost him everything. Through reaching the bottom, he learned about the true nature of God’s forgiveness. Jake had played in several bands while in high school, but never felt the fulfillment that he knew he should be getting out of his music. One year after forming the band, they were joined by Rounder and Rob, who completed the signature sound that they had been searching for. Rounder and Rob not only ushered in a whole new feel for the band, but brought with them Rounder’s awesome story of hope as a cancer survivor.

The band is currently promoting “The Evidence EP,” which is a preview of their current recording project, “The Substance and the Evidence.” This project will be an open and soul-searching look at how faith applies to our lives, even when we can’t see how or why. According to Frank, these questions go widely unanswered by the organized church. The members of 6th hour want people to know that being a Christian is about relationship, and God is eager to answer our questions, even the tough ones, if we will only be brave enough to ask
