Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers Glory Part Two features the voices of 30,000 people during a "Praise Party" at SMART Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines.
A tangible, intentional expression of worshippers collectively pursuing the presence of God, the new music is led by Planetshakers' Sam Evans, Joth Hunt (who also produced and mixed the recording), Aimee Evans, BJ Pridham, Joshua Brown, Rudy Nikkerud, Chelsi Nikkerud and more.
"In the Presence of God, we find peace, healing, protection and comfort," says Russell Evans, Planetshakers Founder and Lead Pastor. "One of the reasons why we record new songs is because we want to provide an atmosphere where people can enter into praise and worship of the One who holds our every moment. When our praise goes up, His presence comes down, and in His presence is fullness of joy."
"We are passionate about the presence of God, and that's why we continue to record new songs. We want to share what God is doing in the life of Planetshakers," says Russell Evans, Planetshakers Founder and Lead Pastor. "In His presence, that's where the miraculous takes place. That's where our problems all of a sudden become like ant hills, becoming insignificant as we experience supernatural breakthrough and a peace that surpasses all understanding."

Pursuing His Presence| Posted April 14, 2020 What You Need To Know
Australian worship collective, Planetshakers, releases their Glory, Pt. Two EP as a follow-up to Part 1 released in January 2020.
What It Sounds Like
Planetshakers has always had an eclectic sound that demonstrates how worship can be fun, edgy, and spiritually engaging at the same time. That same style, infectious energy, and passion for God shine through on Glory, Pt. Two. The four-song EP covers a lot of ground as far as genres go, giving us a taste of pop/rock ("So Good"), ballads ("Encounter Song," "All"), and synth-pop ("Living Louder)".
The bridge of "Encounter Song" takes imagery from the biblical story in Mark 5 of the woman with the issue of blood. In faith and desperation, she pushed through crowds of people just to touch the hem of Jesus' garment, knowing that if she could touch Him she would be healed. The lyrics in this song express that kind of faith and pursuit of God, believing He will work powerfully in areas of deep need in our lives.
I'm pushing through the crowd/'Cause Lord, I need You now/Jesus I'm desperate/For a touch from heaven/I'm reaching out to You/Your power's breaking through/Lord, I'm believing/Lord, I'm believing
Best Song On The Record
"So Good" is the best song on the record, in my opinion. It's a high-energy praise song celebrating the goodness of God to transform our lives. It's also got some standout bass and drum moments, and the electric guitar drives the energy of the song really well.
