YOU KNOW SOMETHING HAS TRULY ENTERED POPULAR CULTURE when it becomes the name of a pop band.
ARAMAIC: How Sweet it is!
Christian band's popularity grows since winning Battle of the Bands


There's just one word to describe the life of Aramaic in the months following their win at the first Let's Go! Battle of the Bands.


That's not a typo, by the way.

"It's been sweet with three Es," said guitarist Nic James.

In August alone, the band played on the bill with two national acts -- Tait and Everyday Sunday -- and have recently begun recording a five-song EP they hope to release later this year.

"We really didn't know what to expect from the Battle," said Wes Thompson, guitarist and lead vocalist for the four-person band. "We really did it just to get known in Chillicothe a little more and we ended up winning."

Thompson and James -- who along with drummer Andrew Pfeifer and bassist Noah Madsen make up Aramaic -- said the band's popularity shot up after the Battle victory.
