Today is the day, as “Altars,” the new album from BEC Recordings' worship group River Valley Worship, is available at all streaming platforms (click here).
To celebrate the release of “Altars,” the group is participating in various events online and from around its home city of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The band kicked off the celebration last night with a special listening party event held exclusively on YouTube, while throughout today members of the group will be live on their Instagram page with special announcements every hour. They are also doing an Instagram Takeover for Multi-Tracks, all leading up to a live virtual record release party tonight kicking off at 8 p.m. CT on both their Instagram and Facebook pages.
“Altars” was produced by Mike Fatkin (Hillsong Y&F). The 13-song collection, which features power anthems such as "Both Sides and "Real Thing," is their fourth album as a group, their second with BEC Recordings. “Altars” is the follow-up to 2018's “Million Lifetimes” and included the Christian Billboard Top 25 anthem "Hope Has A Name," which was also part of BEC Recording's 2019 compilation “Convoy of Hope: Hope Has A Name.”
It was in 2011 that River Valley Worship began releasing a mix of uplifting studio and live albums exemplifying the unified worship culture within their weekend services. Led by singer, songwriter and worship pastor Ryan Williams, and joined by six additional members, the music of River Valley Worship is artful and hope-filled while seeking to pioneer new sonic landscapes for the church on the local and global levels. They are based out of River Valley Church, an inspirational and vibrant church making a global impact with more than 10,000 weekly attendees at campuses spread across the greater Minneapolis area, as well as an international campus in Eswatini, Africa.
