Hearts of Saints working on new album
Hearts of Saints is a band Mark Weber of ChristianMusicDaily.com met behind the Park Stage at Kingdom Bound Christian music festival, before they took the stage to rousing applause. Weber noticed they were the best dressed of any band at the festival, and they just might be the best dressed band in Christian music.
Recently, Weber got a note from band member Joel with news of their new album, coming soon. He went to their website and discovered the longer, more detailed version, which you get to read here:
“Hey friends…many of you have inquired about what’s going on with our new album and we wanted to share our vision and provide a quick update. This will be a VERY unique project for us because it will be a two disc album, under one title, featuring a total of 12 songs. One disc will contain 6 new modern rock worship songs to encourage the church to unite in worship. The other disc will contain 6 new rock/pop songs pushed beyond anything we’ve ever done. We are SO excited about this project because it accurately reflects our passion to see believers and non-believers encouraged by the hope that is only found in Jesus.
The Worship Disc: We’ve always felt called to lead believers to unite in worship and in the past we’ve written some worshipful songs (ie. “Recapture Me” and “Angel’s Light”). During the songwriting process on this album we felt led to continue on this path. Simply putting a few “worshipful” songs on this album just didn’t feel right. Therefore, we teamed up again with songwriter and producer Micheal Farren (“Let it Rain,” “Let The Worshipers Arise”) with hopes that these new songs would ignite generations to live out their faith.
The Rock/Pop Disc: Big drums, blasting guitars, synth bass and soaring vocals have become synonymous with the Hearts of Saints sound. These new songs continue in that vein with a healthy dose of artistic maturity. We wanted these new songs to be the most energetic anthems we’ve ever written and therefore we called on Grammy Award winning producer Andy Hunt to reach that goal. In other words–we want these songs to rock and translate in the live setting.
Overseeing the entire project is our long time friend and executive producer Ainslie Grosser (MuteMath). Working with three producers this time, instead of one, has only refined the songs to be the best they can possibly be. Get ready…this is by far the best stuff we’ve ever written.
As of today, we still don’t have an “official” album name or release date but stay tuned. We will be providing more details in the upcoming weeks. You will also start seeing new pics, website design, etc., very soon. In the meantime we ask for your continued support and prayers.
Love and Grace,
Hearts of Saints
Craig, Joel, Jason and Jesse”
