Hello friends.
After much prayerful consideration it’s with a heavy heart that I announce to you that we’re ending Philmont after August.  It’s been an amazing journey for all of us involved.  Seven years ago when we held our first band practice in my parent’s house I never could have anticipated how blessed we would be in this musical endeavor.  We’ve had so many amazing opportunities to not only play shows and (hopefully touch lives) but also to meet so many incredible people along the way.
We’re all planning on sticking with this music thing for a while longer.  Josiah’s going off to pursue other opportunities and begin to focus on producing.  Josh, Brittany and I are writing for a new project and hope to tell you more about that soon.
A million thanks for all of you who stuck by our side through the tough times all well as the good.  We pray that our music will still continue to encourage listeners for years to come.
Our last and final show will be on August 31st at Lifelight SD.  We’ll be headlining the 360 stage that night.  It’s a free festival so go ahead and book your airline ticket now!

On a financial note Philmont is ending with a substantial amount of debt which will turn into personal debt.  We’re hoping to offset some of this by selling off our remaining merch.  (This will be available online starting early Sept)  If you’re interested in donating any money to help us out you can do so via PayPal (

We’ll also be selling off some other fun, non-merch stuff! (Stage boxes, banners, merch backdrop, etc.)
If you’re interested in making a donation in exchange for one of these items just send us an email and let us know what you want and what you’re willing to pay for it– Silent auction style.

We’ll continue to maintain the band Facebook page and monitor this blog– though not very frequently.  Feel free to follow us on our individual Facebook pages and Twitters to keep up with us post-Philmont.

It’s been a heck of a ride.  Thanks for being a part of it.

In Christ,
Scott Taube // Philmont

    This is some of the saddest news I’ve reported on in a long time. I have had the privilege to meet all the members of Philmont on multiple occasions, and might I say that they are some of the most genuine, down to earth people anyone can meet. I have bought merch, CDs, and I am even staring at a Philmont poster I have on my wall as I write this. This band has helped me through some very tough times and have also contributed to me realizing that I want to be around music for the rest of my life. While it is with great displeasure that I compose this, I want to take the time to thank Philmont for the impact they have had on my life and to wish them only the best in their future endeavors.

  2. Such sad news, choosing to end things as a band is so very difficult. Many prayers for you all in this period and good luck in your future endeavors!
    And I will always be thankful that you played my little benefit concert Rock the Pantry a few years ago.

  4. Hey, email me a list of audio and lighting stuff you want to sell.

  5. Last year, you guys played Ichthus three days in a row. And I saw every one of them. I was also privileged enough to get a Christmas card from you. I am very, very sad that you are ending, but I am happy that you all are off to do different things, things that you love. That’s the best thing you could ever do. I’m very sorry though that you are ending with debt. I know that if I could, I would send you any money that I could. I love you guys. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories, and I look forward to seeing what you do in the future.

  8. well this was a real downer, Scott! Philmont has meant a lot to me over the years, and I’m proud to say I’m a fan. I know I’ll continue to jam those tunes for years to come, especially ones that hit home for me (“Closer”). I’m excited to continue to support you, Josh and Britt with whatever God brings your way next! I’d like to do what I can to help you out with your new journey, so keep us posted! much love.

  17. Hey you guys from Philmont

    i’m a fan of yours from Germany. When a friend of mine send me a message a few hours ago, that you’re going to end PHILMONT I was also a bit shocked and sad, but HEY Thanks for everything you had done! I enjoyed listening to your music a lot of times and I even used your song “The Difference” for our youth group one evening (maye you can remember, I wrote you a message at that time | was a good evening in the youth group by the war 🙂 .
    I really liked you beeing a band that not just called themself christian, but through your lyrics and the way you sang them, one could feel that your heart is truly near Jesus and that you long for doing the will of the father !!

    I wish you all and pray that God may continue blessing you on your way of life, that you may be able to repay your depts and that he will use you all to lead other people to our glorious God an father, to our saviour Jesus Christ!!

    Thanks for everything!

    greetings from Germany

    ps: would have loved to see you guys life for one time, but i’m afraid the ticket to the US would be too expensive the next 1 1/2 months -.-

  18. Are you guys going to pursue other music projects?
