EDITORS’ NOTES

Rend Collective is a fast-rising Christian folk-rock outfit from Northern Ireland with a penchant for soaring arrangements and surging choruses. Their fifth studio full-length—As Family We Go—is a beautifully crafted collection of worship songs that spans an impressive variety of styles—from velvety soul to winsome ukulele tunes. While the surf-spackled pop-punk of “Celebrate” teems with guitars that jitter and glisten, “Free as a Bird” recalls the hilly rhythms and thunderous stomp of Mumford & Sons.

From top to bottom, As A Family We Go makes me want to sing in praise of our awesome God, and isn't that the ultimate goal? Great follow up to The Art of Celebration. Bravo!!

Love love love it!

About Rend Collective

A modern praise & worship band founded in Bangor, Northern Ireland, the Rend Collective (formerly known as the Rend Collective Experiment) is exactly what the name says, more a spiritual and creative collective than a band per se, blending praise lyrics with a kind of experimental folk-rock approach. Growing out of a group of Christian friends looking for a way to bring spirituality more in line with the complexities and confusions of life in the 21st century, the band, at least when it tours, consists primarily of drummer Gareth Gilkeson, vocalists Will Herron and Chris Llewellyn, percussionist and keyboardist Ali Gilkeson, horn player and accordionist Bridget Herron, and bassist Patrick Thompson. Recorded mostly in churches and homes, debut album Organic Family Hymnal appeared in 2010, followed by Homemade Worship by Handmade People in 2012, both released by Kingsway Music. A live set, Soul Survivor & Momentum - Kingdom Come: Live 2012, came out later that year via Integrity Music, which also released Campfire early in 2013. The Art of Celebration, which hit the Billboard 200 Top 15 and U.K. Top 30, arrived in 2014, along with a holiday album, Campfire Christmas, Vol. 1. Their fifth studio album, As Family We Go, was issued in the summer of 2015. The following year the group released Campfire II: Simplicity, a sequel to their 2013 album. Their first best-of collection, Build Your Kingdom Here (dubbed a "mixtape" by the band), followed in 2017. Intended as an elixir to the day's headlines, the studio album Good News arrived in January 2018. ~ Steve Leggett
