Husband-and-wife duo, Out of the Dust have released their brand new single "Pity Party." Comprised of Chris and Stephanie Teague, Out of the Dust first made headlines with their 2017 debut album. They are known for their honest and powerful lyrics, "Pity Party" is no exception. The song speaks of how we don't need to feel sorry for ourselves when circumstances change because Jesus is our constant.
"This is one of those songs that we wrote because we needed it," the duo revealed. "We needed to be reminded that HE is our constant. When our minds were spinning last year trying to see how God could bring beauty from it. When the bitterness was taking root in my heart from being unable to control what was going on around me. When we lost someone we loved.
He is our only constant. We pray that this song will be that reminder for you, too. He is all you need. He longs to carry your heavy burdens for you and give you the peace and joy that only comes from Him."
Chris and Stephanie's story of downfall, heartbreak, and miraculous redemption is woven deep into the fabric of their music. After growing up in church and marrying young, Chris slowly and quietly lost all faith in God during college. Slipping into the grips of alcohol and drugs, he secretly managed an alter ego for years around church friends, family, and even Stephanie.
Finally, everything surfaced one night in 2010 as Stephanie's life unraveled before her eyes. Their young marriage quickly collapsed in divorce as Chris walked away from everything he knew. What happened next can't be called anything other than a miracle. His independence very rapidly found him in the darkest and most desperate place of his life. Incredibly, in just over a year, God mended their hearts, restored their marriage, and still continues to breathe new life into their story today.
God not only redeemed and resurrected their marriage, but He also gave them a new direction which they had never even dreamed about... Music together with a purpose. The release of their debut album led them to perform and share their story all over the country, and they received extensive media coverage including Fox News, The 700 Club and Family Life Today.
