Band drops new song, ‘Delivered,’ and album pre-order
On Friday, I AM THEY announced the official release date of their upcoming studio album, “Faithful God,” as Oct. 23 (Provident Label Group). Today also marks the release of the album's pre-order campaign as well as the project's second single and lyric video for the song "Delivered."
"Faithful God," the first single from the album just debuted last month and already has a strong start at radio. The new music video for "Faithful God" already has more than 250,000 views.
" 'Faithful God' comes from Hebrews 10:23, which says, ‘Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful,' " explained Matt Hein, I AM THEY's vocalist and guitarist. "The song speaks to our persistence in the middle of what we’re going through because he is faithful.”
It's been more than two years since I AM THEY – made up of Hein, Abbie Parker (vocals), Brandon Chase (vocals, guitar), Justin Shinn (keys) and Nicole Hickman (drums) – released "Scars," the chart-topping and K-LOVE Fan Awards-nominated single from their album “Trial & Triumph.”
With "Faithful God" and the 11 additional songs to be featured on the new project, there’s a heaviness that's been lifted and the band has a redefined sense of what it means to hope for the future. Even the group’s moniker speaks to the members’ belief in promises held together by trust, that God is pointing the way forward. For “they,” it isn’t about a singular ambition, but a collective desire for God’s plan.
“That’s what people have connected to with I AM THEY, for being real," Parker shared. "We’ve always been upfront with the difficult things we’re facing. The trust that we’ve built helps us be vulnerable with each other and within our songs.”
