Rend Collective have released their new single 'Sing It From The Shackles', available now from all streaming and download platforms. The song is from the Irish band's forthcoming album I Choose to Worship, releasing March 13th.
Explaining the new song, the band said, "Have you ever felt imprisoned or stuck in your life circumstances? Honestly, we've been there. Days where it's been hard to get out of bed, days where we're not sure anything we do matters, days where we feel like we're spiraling out of control.
Paul and Silas were actually stripped and beaten before being thrown in the most securely guarded cell in the prison. In the midst of that humiliation, despair and pain, they chose to worship. As they sang the prison doors flung open and their shackles fell off.
We believe this story isn't just an allegory or specific to them-- we ALL have access to the same power of God. We all have the ability to sing in our darkest moments. We hope this song gives you an anthem for the dark nights of the soul, and encourages you to sing His praise from the shackles!"
