Pop/Rock Band Hearts Of Saints Release Sophomore Album ‘For All Of Us’

Pop Rock Worship Band Hearts Of Saints Release Sophomore Album For All Of Us

Pop/Rock band Hearts Of Saints are getting 2013 started in the right way, releasing their sophomore album ‘For All Of Us’ which is due for release on 15th January.

‘For All Of Us’ is a double-disc offering, offering both Rock and Worship songs.

Featuring executive producer Ainslie Grosser (Jesus Culture, Matt Redman); producer/songwriter Michael Farren, known for writing modern worship staples ‘Let It Rain’ and ‘Let The Worshippers Arise;’ and Grammy Award-winning producer Andy Hunt (Shirock, Matthew West), the album contains not only Hearts Of Saints’ signature catchy rock anthems, but also Scripture-heavy songs for the church to sing.

“We’ve always been comfortable in both worlds, it’s just who we are,” explains Hearts Of Saints front-man Craig Felker. “We’re not a rock band covering worship songs; we feel called to write fresh expressions. Truth be told, we’ve never been all that interested in simply singing songs to people anyway. We want to sing songs with people.”

Covering a wide subject range, ‘For All Of Us’ is full of anthemic songs that speak to the real world joys and heartaches of the faith journey. ‘Come Out Of The Dark’ is a bold call to remember our identity in Christ as “sons and daughters of light,” while the Psalm-inspired ‘Everlasting’ portrays an intimate plea born out of a desire for holiness.

Along with the seven new worship tracks on ‘For All Of Us,’ listeners will also be treated to six more cuts that reflect the band’s Pop/Rock sensibilities. Yet nestled beneath these songs’ playful, raucous musical exterior are, similar to the Worship tracks, sobering commentaries on modern life and faith. In ‘Attraction Distraction,’ co-written with Joel Smallbone (for KING & COUNTRY), Hearts of Saints considers the danger of becoming slaves to people-pleasing, while the compelling ballad ‘Wait,’ written after learning a teenage fan had committed suicide, centers around people searching for lasting love, significance and fulfillment.

The project’s debut radio single ‘Merciful God,’ will begin vying for adds at Christian AC and CHR on 18th January 2013. ‘For All Of Us’ will be distributed to Christian retail via New Day Christian Distributors.
