Available Jan. 27, 2017; advocating for peace, timely single 'See The Love' available now
In a world faced with suffering, division and hate, liturgical band The Brilliance is declaring that - even still - "All Is Not Lost," the title of their sophomore album, set to release Jan. 27, 2017.
The New York-based duo, comprised of David Gungor and John Arndt, writes songs for both the church and those feeling spiritually homeless. Their goal is to create music that gives voice to the pain and pleasure of the human experience, providing a sonic invitation that welcomes all people to live fully.
Colored through with intricate string arrangements, "All Is Not Lost" contains tracks packed with depth as the lyrics honestly tackle issues and struggles impacting culture today. The album features special guest Charles Jones, musical director for Andra Day, while David and John's voices offer varying perspectives on faith and doubt.
The official video for the album's single "See The Love," is an anthem of peace and understanding - fittingly released Nov. 9, the day after the U.S. presidential election. The song can be unlocked upon pre-ordering "All Is Not Lost."
The Brilliance recently launched a podcast, diving into the making of "All Is Not Lost," highlighting a different song each week. Recent special guests have included Savannah Guthrie ("Today"), Jon Huckins (The Global Immersion Project) and Mike McHargue ("Science Mike"), among others.
"All Is Not Lost" follows their debut album with Integrity Music, "Brother," which was named Worship Leader's No. 1 album of 2015.
