Band Changes and a new album
In 2010 lead singer Ben Crist started an internship with the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. The band members went their separate ways when it was clear that he was supposed to stay in Kansas City. Ben is currently still serving at IHOP. In December 2011, Ben Crist let people know through an interview that there would be a new TGU album coming in 2012. The band will be made up of people serving alongside him in Kansas City. During the month of April 2012, Ben Crist is running a fundraiser through the Kickstarter website to help record and release his third album by The Glorious Unseen, titled "Lovesick".
Guitar player Ryan Stubbs released an album titled The Waking Cardinal.
