Stretch Arm Strong

Stretch Arm Strong (Also known as Stretch Armstrong) is a hardcore punk band from Irmo, South Carolina, and the flagship band for We Put Out Records. They have been active since 1992. Several of the band members are outspoken Christians, but they prefer not to be classified as a Christian band in some cases.[2][3] They do prefer to be known as Christian with influences, but not as a band that "preaches". Vocalist Chris McLane appears on Zao's The Lesser Lights of Heaven DVD.
