Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Rock band Disciple releases its first new album in nearly two years, Attack, independently worldwide through The Fuel Music Sept. 23. The crowd-funded and 10th studio album is also the first recording featuring front man, founding member and band leader Kevin Young's newly formed powerhouse line-up.  Writing, recording and touring with Young are four new Disciple members, but established musicians in their own right: Josiah Prince from Philmont and Andrew Stanton from I Am Empire on guitars, Jason Wilkes from High Flight Society on bass and vocals, and Joey West from After Edmund on drums.

"It's Disciple's best lineup ever," says Young.  "They have the perfect combination of being great players and performers, and are ridiculously talented songwriters.  One of my favorite things about these guys is that they have embraced where Disciple has been and love to play the classic songs for our fans, as well as have put every ounce of their souls into trying to take Disciple higher than we've ever been.  I think our fans have embraced them for that in return."

While each of the band members except for Young are new, Disciple brought back into the mix Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Pillar, TobyMac), who produced the first seven Disciple records. "I hadn't worked with Travis in six years, but we knew this was going to be a hard, aggressive record. Travis recorded all of our hardest albums and working with him was like going home."

A year in the making, and with the added freedom of now being independent for the first time since 2003, Disciple's resulting album offers hard, experimental and atmospheric elements with "Dead Militia," "Lion" and "Angels And Demons," as well as gives a nod to long-time Disciple fans with "The Name" and the album's lead single, "Radical."

"I wanted to talk about Jesus loudly and without shame," says Young. "That's why 'Radical' is the first track and our first single. It sets the tone for what we want people to hear. We talk about Jesus openly at every show. We do an altar call.  That is who we are and that is what Disciple is called to do, and we hope that people hear the new music and say 'Yeah, now THAT'S Disciple!'"

"We wrote this record as a new band," continues Young. "Attack is the right album title because that's what we did with every song.  Every band member contributed in a huge way to this album.  Everybody brought songs to the table that we all worked on, and made each other's songs better.  It was definitely a well-coordinated attack on all sides."
