In 2008 Church released two e.p.’s, “with all our love for Francisco the Man” and “Gold.” In 2009 Church released their first full length “Song Force Crystal” on Sohitek records (vinyl only) and also Tender Loving Empire Records. In March of 2010 - Hosannas released "Together" under their new name. Shortly after this album was released Christof and Lane departed amicably from the band to pursue personal musical endeavors.
