STRYPER offers a new t-shirt to coincide with the November release of the film Electric Jesus; Movie Band 316 Covers “Makes Me Wanna Sing”
Stryper Christian Steelworkers have registered with the following update:
“We have just introduced a new T to the Stryper online store to coincide with the upcoming release of the film: Electric Jesus.
Electric Jesus – a rock ‘n’ roll comedy in the making, follows the ill-fated exploits of a Stryper-loving Christian metal band in the summer of 1986. The film is slated for release November 2 in the US and Canada. – soon, all over the world!
The film stars The Office’s Brian Baumgartner as the band’s hapless road director, ’80s teen icon Judd Nelson as the scorching preacher, and newcomers Andrew Eakle, Shannon Hutchinson and Wyatt Lenhart as devout teenagers determined to “make Jesus famous”.
Electric Jesus has made waves in the American film festival circuit, winning numerous awards and converting hundreds of followers. It’s a stunning breakthrough from writer / director Chris White, who co-produced the film with his wife Emily Reach White and co-wrote the original songs for the film with alternative rock musician Daniel Smith.
Chris, Emily and Daniel screened the movie for Stryper several months ago, and we loved it! Together, we came up with the idea for this new T-shirt. In Electric Jesus, the film group has the chance to open for Stryper and Mötley Crüe during the legendary Heaven & Hell concert tour. So as a tribute to that, and to celebrate our friends’ super cool movie release, we’re bringing you this limited edition, T tribute!
