Rend Collective is a 'Whosoever'


Fri, Aug 26th 2022 03:55 pm

Northern Ireland worship band Rend Collective has released a new album, “Whosoever”. The album features 10 tracks, including the recently released radio single "Plans," and the vibrant anthemic song, "Let It Roll."

A press release stated, “The record is about God's vast, generous embrace – wide enough, for the prodigal sons, cynical older brother and any other label we might apply to ourselves or others. As the title of the album clearly states – the gospel is for everyone.”

The band stated, “Our big hope for ‘Whosoever’ is that it would be more than just Christian music, but that it would be HUMAN music: An invitation for absolutely everyone to encounter and celebrate the good news of Jesus, regardless of what labels, mistakes or religious baggage we carry. John 3:16 says: God so loved the world – no one is left out of that sentence. We all have access to grace and hope, and that’s what we’re singing about on this record.”

Celebrating this release, Rend Collective will head out on tour for "The Whosoever Tour" starting Sept. 14. The band will then join the “MercyMe LIVE” tour on Oct. 20. For more information, tour dates and tickets, visit the band's website here.

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

The band’s team said, “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.
