Collection of music born out of Dallas-Fort Worth based Gateway Church
Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 11, 2017) – GATEWAY will release their most recent album Monuments on Sept. 15 with Fair Trade Services. GATEWAY finds its origin at Gateway Church in Southlake, Tex., one of the largest churches in North America ministering to nearly 40,000 attendees across multiple campuses and thousands more online each week.
The collective is born out of the rich heritage of Gateway Worship and features multiple Dove Award winner and GRAMMY® nominated Mark Harris as well as Matt Birkenfeld, Anna Byrd, Austin Benjamin, Lauren Dunn, Maddison Harris, Cole Novak, Levi Smith and others making up the voices and songs. The new 12-track LP finds symmetry in the monuments observed throughout scripture and the moments in our own life, pointing to the belief that we are monuments of His faithfulness.
“We are so excited about this new collection of songs that represent what God has been and is doing in our church,” shares Harris. “They speak of God’s faithfulness, His greatness and love. The worship leaders and songwriters of GATEWAY unified to pour out their hearts and songs to the Lord like never before.”
“Open The Heavens,” the first single from Monuments, will impact radio on Aug. 18. “My hope with this song is that, as people listen there would be an expectation, a joy and a faith that would come alive in every person,” explains Novak. “To expect big things from God, and be willing to have faith to say ‘yes’ to whatever He wants to do. And that we would know on the other end of that obedience that God is going to do incredible things because of who He is.”
“Open The Heavens” is available on all digital outlets now along with the album pre-order.
