GRAMMY nominated MercyMe has announced their next project, not yet titled, to release March 31st, 2017. For the first time ever, the band is using PledgeMusic as the hub for the new album, offering limited edition exclusives and items alongside the album's pre-order on the campaign page.
"We're so excited to announce that MercyMe has begun writing & recording new songs for our forthcoming album. For this, our NINTH studio album, we wanted to try something completely different: we want you to come along on the journey with us. All of us in the band are thrilled for the opportunity to have you with us, supporting and collaborating as we make this new music. God has been so faithful to us over all these years of music & ministry, and you've been a huge part of that. We're so excited to be taking that to the next level here at PledgeMusic," the band said about the new record.
The first new music from the group since 2014's Welcome To The New (not counting their 2015 Christmas project), this will be MercyMe's ninth studio album and has much to live up to, considering Welcome To The New is still garnering attention. Last month the album was honored with RIAA Gold Certification, making it the sixth gold album in the band's discography. Welcome To The New also grabbed two GRAMMY nominations, multiple Dove Awards, an AMA nod and three No. 1 singles.
