23 March 2020 - Seattle, WA/Nashville, TN - BEC Recordings is excited to announce the May 8 release from River Valley Worship titled Altars. The album's first instant grat single, "Both Sides," just dropped last Friday and a live video also accompanies the song and is featured below.
"Both Sides," a prolific Easter anthem inspired by John 11 when Jesus stood on one of the stone calling Lazarus back to life, reminds us that the authority of Jesus knows no bound or limit. The album's second instant grat song and live video, "Real Thing," will become available April 10, followed by "All Of Me" as the third song/live video to drop prior to the album's May 8 release.
River Valley Worship is a faith-filled collection of artists based out of River Valley Church, an inspirational and vibrant church with locations all around the greater Minneapolis region. Beginning in 2011, the group began releasing a mix of uplifting studio and live albums that exemplify the unified worship culture flourishing within their weekend services. Led by singer, songwriter, and worship pastor Ryan Williams, the music of River Valley Worship is artful, hope-filled, and seeks to pioneer new sonic landscapes for the church on the local and global levels.
Altars was produced by Mike Fatkin (Hillsong Y&F) and is the group's second album with BEC Recordings (following 2018's Million Lifetimes), their fourth album to release as a church group. Million Lifetimes included their Christian Billboard Top 25 anthem "Hope Has A Name," which was also a part of BEC Recording's 2019 project compilation Convoy of Hope: Hope Has A Name. River Valley Worship has also released Million Lifetimes: Deconstructed EP as well as 2016's Edge of Heaven.
