Band releases new song, ‘Let It Roll,’ along with live video premiere

The worship band from Northern Ireland, Rend Collective, announces the release of its new album, “Whosoever,” available on Aug. 26. Today, fans can preorder the album as well as get a new song, "Let It Roll" (click here). Celebrating the release of "Let It Roll," the band premiered a live performance video filmed in Ireland – watch below. 

"This record is about the wide, generous embrace of God," Rend Collective shares. "Wide enough for prodigal sons stumbling home, wide enough for cynical older brothers: Wide enough to wrap around any label we might apply to ourselves or others. The bold, soaring claim of John 3:16 is that God so loved the world so that whosoever believes in him shall not perish. This offer is extended with no asterisks or fine print, transcending the silly tribal lines we draw between each other. This gospel is for whosoever. And that’s good news because it includes all the people we love. And, scandalously, the ones we struggle to love. This is a story big enough, hopeful enough, and inspiring enough to keep us singing forever."

Earlier this summer, Rend Collective released their song, "Plans," which is also part of this upcoming album and is the band's current radio single.

The band’s team said, " ‘Plans’ aims to remind their listeners that even in the hardest times – a global pandemic, a loss, a health struggle, and when you haven't seen the answers to your prayer – God has plans for you.”

With more than 750 million career streams, a No. 3 Billboard Top Christian/Gospel album debut with their album “Choose to Worship,” a Top 5 radio single ("Counting Every Blessing") and an RIAA Gold and Platinum single with "My Lighthouse," Rend Collective is “an authentic worship experience.”



From a small, coastal town in Northern Ireland, Rend Collective forged a new palette for worship music. Trading synths for ukuleles and big halls for campfires, Rend Collective scuffed up the pristineness of modern worship, speaking directly to those who weren’t knocking on the church’s door. Now, they bring this same unique music to the world, leaving their sold-out audiences filled with joy, unity, and an authentic worship experience.

The band has been a part of several major tours with top artists such as Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Lecrae and, most recently, Mercy Me.

Rend Collective is Gareth Gilkeson, Chris Llewellyn, Ali Gilkeson and Stephen Mitchell.
