A brief but major force in the 1980s Christian alternative music scene with Undercover, Altar Boys, Lifesavers, Lifters, Crumbacher, Adam Again…
441's blend of catchy beats and melodies capped with insightful lyrics garnered unprecedented acclaim for an indie band.
Both the song Break Out and the self-titled album debuted at the top position on so-cal CCM radio station KYMS, a first for any act and topping the hugely successful new release by U2, The Unforgettable Fire and their legendary hit Pride (In the Name of Love).
4-4-1 stayed in the top 40 for several months and the band was named 1984s Best New Band in the KYMS listener music awards.
The band completed their second album, Mourning Into Dancing in the summer of 1985. Produced by Dino and John Elefante of Kansas fame, the title track hit 2 in the national CCM Rock charts.
4-4-1 toured extensively off the success of their two hit records, playing energetic sets at the Icthus and Cornerstone festivals in 1986.
The group has reformed, playing occasionally and is working on new material. Stay tuned.
