Good News is an understatement!

This album has the classic joy and creativity of the rend we all love coupled with a new fresh sound which is gonna rock your world! In short, authentic worship meets the best song writing and music I've ever heard from a worship band.



Definitely Rends best work to date! 👍🏻

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
