Kutless has been focusing on creating great contemporary Christian music with their last few albums. However, Kutless originally started as a band focused on Christian rock music, and through a social media post, has made it known that they are returning to rock and roll, at least for one record. They have announced that they will be releasing an EP of around six songs that is entirely focused on rock music.
The band shared their excitement on social media saying:
"Hey fam, we love you. We are excited to update you about the new Kutless album. This year has been kind of crazy, for all of us. Originally, James was planning on co-producing this album with Josiah Prince from Disciple, and they were hoping to get started around mid-March. Then James broke his ankle in January and has been recovering since then, unable to travel or even walk, then this whole COVID-19 thing happened. We are planning on this project being an EP (approximately six songs), and it is going to be very heavy, like heavier than Hearts of the Innocent. Who's stoked for a new Kutless album?"
Some of Kutless' earlier rock hits include songs like "Your Touch," "Treason," and "Shut Me Out." The band has been nominated for four GMA DOVE Awards related to rock/contemporary, and album of the year awards. Additionally, as of 2015, the band has sold over 3 million copies across all of their albums.
