'Hello struggle, I'm right here. I've got my armour and got my shield. Bring your weapons and throw your spears. God is with me, farewell fear.'
That opening line to Finding Favour's new album Farewell Fear summarizes the band's journey the past few years. It is not just their mantra but a reminder to us all that God is with us and that we all need to say farewell to the fear that holds us back in our daily lives.
Produced by Bryan Fowler (Hollyn, TobyMac), Jordan Sapp (Austin Mahone, Jason Derulo) and Casey Brown (Building 429, We Are Messengers) the album is the band's most adventurous project in sound to date while maintaining the heartfelt and emotional lyrics they are known for. For a band that dealt with the loss of a child and other family members these past few years they know the struggles of life first hand but they also know the redemptive power that comes with new life. 'So long sorrow, don't need you here. I've got my Father, his Son and Spirit. I lift my praise till the whole world hears so hello heaven and farewell fear.'
