The Lost Colony is excited to bring Jars Of Clay, a Christian rock band from Nashville, to the Waterside Theatre on August 3 at 8PM as the third event in the 2014 concert series. The band’s name is derived from a bible verse translation. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1995. “Jars of Clay” has since reached multi-platinum certification according to the RIAA.
The single “Flood” peaked at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #12 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart, and was the band’s biggest secular radio hit.

The year 1997 saw the release of the band’s sophomore album, “Much Afraid” which has since earned platinum certification by the RIAA. The album sold very well and went on to earn a Grammy award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. In 1999, Jars of Clay released their third album, “If I Left The Zoo.” This album was their second in a row to earn a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album.
In 2002, the band self-produced and released their fourth album entitled “The Eleventh Hour,” which earned the band a Grammy award for the third album in a row.
Their fifth studio album entitled “Who We Are Instead” was released on November 4, 2003. In early 2005, the band released “Redemption Songs,” a collection of hymns and traditional songs. “God Will Lift Up Your Head”, reworked as an acoustic rocker, was a hit for the band on Christian radio. In 2006 “Good Monsters” was released and peaked at #58 on the billboard 200, selling over 15,000 copies in its first week. The band’s first release through their own independent label Gray Matters was a Christmas album that was released on October 16, 2007, entitled “Christmas Songs.”
“The Long Fall Back To Earth” was released on April 21, 2009 through Gray Matters Records. The album peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Albums. The first radio single off the album is “Two Hands”, which peaked at #6 on the Hot Christian Songs chart. Their latest album, Inland, was released in 2013 to great critical acclaim.
Lost Colony CEO Bill Coleman says: “We’re really excited to have one of the biggest Christian rock bands of all time joining us this summer. Jars Of Clay has been creating mainstream hits for 20 years now and they’re right in line with our mission of providing great family entertainment for the Outer Banks.”
