Rend Collective have today released their brand new single 'Your Name Is Power', with an official music video also accompanying the track. The band revealed that the song is, in part, inspired by the current season of political change in the UK - brought on by the ongoing Brexit situation.
"This song was born out of a need to remind ourselves of who is in control", explains Rend. "As many of you may already know, Northern Ireland and the U.K. are going through a lot of political transitions that pose questions about the future that at times can feel overwhelming. But we know it’s not just the U.K. that is in a season of chaos and unknown - everywhere we turn seemingly there are issues. Some of them global, like the crisis in Sudan, or the protests in Hong Kong. Others are more private and no less overwhelming, loss of a family member, or job, seasons of doubt and confusion.
But here’s the thing friends, we have hope. There is an answer to the darkness, this IS hope among the chaos. His name is Jesus. His name scatters darkness, His name brings the dead back to life, and it’s at His name that every knee will bow and tongue confess Jesus is Lord. There is power in the name of Jesus for his people to claim - that means you and I. Power to strengthen and encourage us. Power that only comes from Him. We hope this song encourages you to speak the power of His name over your circumstances WHATEVER they may be!"
On the heels of “Counting Every Blessing” marked as the biggest song of their career to date, Rend Collective is delivering “YOUR NAME IS POWER,” a brand new single available on all platforms today. The anthem of declaration and praise will hit radio airwaves on July 26. In celebration of the release, the group is additionally unveiling a live performance video of "YOUR NAME IS POWER" recorded in Nashville, Tenn.
Their previous radio hit “Counting Every Blessing” broke through Christian Airplay’s Top 5. The single is housed on Good News which has been streamed over 50 million times. The Belfast-based band has amassed more than 300 million album streams globally.
2019 has proved to be a busy year for the collective. In addition to the newly released single, the band continues to average more than 100 tour dates a year, including a headlining spot on the arena-boasting Winter Jam 2019. They will kick off "The Revival Anthem Tour" in Canada and the U.S. this Fall.
