Irish celebration band Rend Collective’s new single, “Year of Victory,” is available now to download/stream. This new music comes after their seventh studio project, CHOOSE TO WORSHIP, released early last year.
“Like many of you, this last year has been one of losses and pain for us,” the band shares when speaking about the heart behind the new single. “Loss of time with loved ones, economic loss, unexpected medical diagnoses, and mental health battles all took their toll and honestly we came into the new year feeling a little apprehensive about what it would hold.”
Rend Collective adds, “But the idea of the ‘Year of Jubilee’ in the Bible really captured our imaginations. That yes, this world will have its struggles, but the vision for God’s kingdom is one of freedom, emancipation, debt forgiven and sin atoned! Even though we’ve been through so much, we can still live prophetically the vision of the kingdom of God – which is good news to ALL people. It’s in HIM we can claim our victory!”
Hailing from a small town off the coast of Northern Ireland, Rend Collective (Gareth Gilkeson, Chris Llewellyn, Ali Gilkeson, Patrick Thompson, and Stephen Mitchell) wants to be known as a celebration band. The group’s authentic and energetic style of worship has attracted an international audience, with songs like “Build Your Kingdom Here,” “My Lighthouse,” and “Counting Every Blessing.” Their most recent albums have hit the highest non-Christian charting any worship album has ever achieved in the U.K.
