With the recent success of their debut self titled EP, Toronto, Canada worship band Lightfall is back with their new release Lost In Who You Are. The full length project was a collaboration between the creative mind of producer Derek Hoffman (Brighter Brightest) and the four members.
Rooted in the teachings of the scriptures, the group's aim is to spread the message of hope and love. Hope for a life filled with grace and a love so big it cannot be duplicated.
The first single off the album, "Your Love Is An Ocean" is a sing-a-long favourite that has taken over the radio waves all across the country and is receiving rave reviews from all those who hear it.
"We hold this song close to our hearts because this was the first song we wrote as a group back in 2012 when we were first getting started" says Lightfall Frontman, Renz Laserna. "We really feel that we took this John 3:16 inspired tune and gave it a raw edgy sound that people from all walks of life can identify with." The album, takes influence from acts that include Metric, Hillsong, Bellarive, Daft Punk and Bethel. Lightfall's Indie Pop Rock sound is gaining lots on attention all while staying true to what it really is, worship.
Inspired by events that originally surged the band's conception, the title track, "Lost in Who You Are" is taken from 1 Corinthians 8. The chapter opens by saying that where there is knowledge, love abounds and those that think they know what love is don't really understand what that truly means until they are known by God. "There is something incredibly intimate that is revealed in God's nature when we realize that he is the one who finds us in our weakness. When we love God, when we know Him, we become known to Him." Says Drummer Mark Chown.
Lightfall officially released the new album September 18, 2015 and are already off to a great start. They were recently nominated at the 37th Annual Covenant Awards in the category of "New Artist Of The Year". "We obviously don't do what we do for awards, but the recognition from peers and those in the industry is always a massive encouragement to help us keep pressing forward" says Chown in a recent Facebook post.
