Acclaimed pop/rock/worship band The Neverclaim releases its first full-length live worship album, Encounter: A Live Worship Experience, Sept. 30 from Radiate Music. Recorded live at the Franklin, TN-based Vineyard Church just outside of Nashville, the album was produced by the band’s Jeremiah Carlson (lead vocals), Mitchell Maldonado (guitar/keys), Chuck Hill (bass) and Beji George (drums), and expresses the band’s story of being broken people who are now a testimony to the extravagant love, grace and goodness of God.
Here’s what they tell us about their new CD:
Since I had the opportunity to give this music a listen before it releases, I’ll let you in on a little secret: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE song #7, Man of Sorrows, because the drum parts are pretty cool. I know to most people that isn’t a good enough reason to be captured by a song, but hey, I’m a church drummer myself, and I love the beat, okay? I also think I’ve heard another band do the song, or at least it seems kind of familiar to me.
Oh, and song #2, Testimony, is pretty awesome too, and I say that because I love the lyrics to that song.
The full Encounter tracklist follows:
- Our God Wins
- Through Christ
- Where You Are
- Man Of Sorrows (Jesus Our Victory)
- Rules And Reigns
- Touch The Sky
- How Great Thou Art
