New music is here from Rend Collective. Today, the worship band from Northern Ireland drops the EP “Hallelujah Anyway,” (listen here) featuring two new versions of their current single of the same name, along with three previously unreleased songs: "Homesick," Beggars To Kings" and "Let It Roll (Live)". Additionally, a deluxe version of their 2022 album. “Whosoever,” also drops today, featuring the new songs also included on the EP.
"We’ve always felt like our songs don’t really come alive until we hear the church sing them back to us, and over the last year, we’ve heard thousands of people making 'Hallelujah Anyway' their anthem, striking a match of hopeful worship in the midst of heartbreak and chemo and all kinds of traumatic situations," the band collectively shared.
"We also wanted to give you a window into our studio experience," they added. "We wrote and recorded with our mate, Matt Maher, and when we heard his amazing vocals all over 'Hallelujah Anyway' in the writing room, it felt like you needed to hear it, too! Thank you for making 'Hallelujah Anyway' such a special and significant song in our catalog – we hope you feel the same way.”
To date, the five members of Rend Collective have 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 with "Counting Every Blessing"; and an RIAA Gold and Platinum single with "My Lighthouse."
As an authentic worship experience, Rend Collective desires to continue to spread its music message around the world.
Throughout February up until the end of May, the band will embark on its “Campfire: The 10th Anniversary Tour,” visiting the U.K., Ireland and the U.S. for 34 dates. Find the latest tour schedule and more information here.
More About Rend Collective
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.
With career sales of nearly 800,000 albums, the group has seen many successes, including the radio hit “Counting Every Blessing” which hit the Top 5 on the National Christian Audience Chart, and their album “Choose To Worship” charted at No. 3 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart in the first week of its release. The band has also been a part of several major tours with top artists Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Lecrae and MercyMe. Find out more at RendCollective.com.
