'Good News is the album where Rend Collective have tried to be as Rend Collective-y as possible. In the past we’ve been insecure and sometimes let that insecurity stop us from fully being ourselves and worse - from fully expressing the unique(weird?) identity God has given us.
But Good News is our unfettered, uncaged, unapologetic announcement of old fashioned, transforming, earth shattering gospel. We celebrate loud, we lament openly and we sing simple truth like we mean it.
This record was hard-fought - we held nothing back and laid our vulnerable selves out on the altar of each and every track.
Thanks so much for inspiring us and cheering us on - we love you! (And we hope you agree with us that this our best yet!)' - Rend Collective
