Following the worshipful 2014 release Glory, Kutless deepens its catalog of worship offerings with Surrender, an electrifying set of hard-edged rock-and-worship originals.

Kutless Tears It Up | Posted November 02, 2015
Did you hear? Kutless has a new album! Here's what you need to know.

Rock is Back: Miss the Kutless of old, the band that gave fierce guitar rockers that you could headbang to while still providing deep worship? We haven't seen them much since 2008's To Know That Your Alive. 2012's Believer mixed their popular worship offerings with some rockier moments for a strong outing, but 2014's Glory almost completely abandoned the band's rock roots. 

Surrender remedies that right out of the gate. "Tear It Up" is the band's hardest song in years, and it satisfies with Kutless' signature sound and the instantly recognizable rock vocals of Jon Micah Sumrall. While no other track comes close to this level of intensity, "Not Too Far," "My Heart is a Ghost" and even "Mirror" all bring plenty of guitar-driven energy to the table.
The Radio Worship Hasn't Gone Anywhere: More a fan of "Sea of Faces" than "Shut Me Out"? Fear not, Kutless has got you covered. Lead single "Bring It On" exemplifies the best of Kutless softer sounds with plenty of engaging anthemic energy and an accessible blend of pop and rock. "Love Come Crashing Down" follows in the same style and is another likely radio hit, and "Loved" is a great example of a Kutless slow song done right. They even throw in a cover of "One Thing Remains," because Kutless doing worship covers is also still their thing.

God is Still the Focal Point: Kutless has always been Christ-centered while still real, and this holds true for pretty much every song on Surrender.

The Bottom Line:
Kutless is back! Maybe not quite better than ever, but with a strong and satisfying return to the sound that made them famous. Surrender is a success and should give those who missed a rocking Kutless the album they've spent the better part of a decade waiting for.
