Beauty from Pain 1.1

Beauty From Pain was released again in July 2006 as Beauty From Pain 1.1. This is Superchick's mainstream debut album with Columbia Records. It is different from the original in that the track order was also slightly rearranged. It also features remixed versions of "We Live", and "Anthem", does not include "Stories", and includes Regeneration's "One Girl Revolution".

A new track, "Stand in the Rain", was included on this re-release.[4] The song reached No. 1 on the R&R Christian Hit Radio (CHR) chart for 9 weeks starting in October 2006. It was the 18th most played song on CHR radio stations in 2007.[5]
