New Worship Releases: April 17, 2012
Known for their ability to engage church audiences of all ages and worship traditions, Deluge calls Baton Rouge’s Bethany World Prayer Center home. Not only do the band members attend Bethany, “frontman” Jonathan Stockstill serves as Bethany’s lead pastor, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather in service to the church.
Hailed by ChristianityToday.com for their “rock-solid musicianship” and “inventive, hard-to-peg style,” Deluge first caught the attention of music critics and fans with the release of their self-titled Integrity Music debut in 2008. Two years later, the band returned with Unshakable, an album filled with songs inspired by faith-trying testimony. Now the band offers up Swell, a 12-track album produced by Brent Milligan (Steven Curtis Chapman/Audio Adrenaline) that features all new songs recorded live at the church’s annual 220 Conference. The project includes songs written by Deluge’s Stockstill, Andrae Harrison and Corey Bastin with guest co-writes by Milligan, Martha Munizzi and Stu G (Delirious), who also serves as a guest musician on the album.
“I can’t remember being this excited about a recording as long as we have been doing live worship records,” says Stockstill of Swell. “I feel the songs are among the best we’ve ever written and they are a lot of fun to sing in a corporate setting.”
With momentous songs like Pursuit and Like A Lion, Daniel Bashta offers a digital release today which includes live recordings and acoustic versions of songs plus the critically acclaimed previously released album.
