Capturing the energy, excitement and worship of Melbourne’s Planetshakers Church, one of the fastest growing churches in Australia, Planetshakers Band is set to release globally through Integrity Music its 26th live recording, ENDLESS PRAISE, on March 11, 2014. Recorded at Planetshakers’ annual Awakening event in Melbourne, the CD / DVD is an anthemic, joy-infused collection that gives honor to the One who makes all things possible.
Modern worship grown locally then catapulted onto an international stage, Planetshakers Band’s new album is organic to its environment and yet unique to the digital age in which it was born. It is the result of a dedicated team of talented songwriters, musicians and worship leaders boldly leading as one. From the celebratory title track and video that opens the recording, to songs like “Turn It Up” and “Dance,” the album gives listeners carte-blanche permission to leave their inhibitions at the door and dance for joy before the Lord.

Shaking Up a Genre| Posted June 02, 2014
The upbeat worship team known as Planetshakers, hailing from Planetshakers City Church in Melbourne, Australia, returns this Spring with their latest offering, Endless Praise.
Already a force to be reckoned with in the modern worship movement, the passionate group of innovators were some of the first to tap into the now-hot market of electronic worship music (a movement that has grown thanks to fellow Aussies in Hillsong Young & Free).
Title track "Endless Praise" enforces their techno pop sound strongly and throws in the grittier elements of electric guitars and crashing drums. In a genre currently saturated with synth, the addition of a few organic elements are much welcomed, and you'll find them sprinkled throughout on this album.
"Dance" lives up to its name. A burst of bombastic adrenaline, it's hard to not to be on your feet and shouting right along with the group: "Everybody give it up for Jesus! Give Him glory, for He has redeemed us!"
Softer, more vertical moments on the project can be found just as prominently as the higher octane songs. "Set Me Ablaze" and "Leave Me Astounded" usher in prayerful surrender, while "Kiss Towards" brings to mind the impromptu moments of worship you'll find from bands like Bethel, beautifully raw and divinely unscripted.
Planetshakers are one of worship music's more underrated acts, but I doubt their underground status shall remain that way very long. Clever, bright and whimsical, while still remaining powerfully authentic, Endless Praise is a project not to be overlooked.
