SEATTLE, WASH (OCTOBER 05, 2017) – BEC Recordings’ band, Kutless, will release their new album ALPHA / OMEGA on November 10. The band’s tenth studio album is now available for pre-order here. With their upcoming album ALPHA / OMEGA, Kutless has created a collection of rock and worship songs of both original and cover tracks that are true to who the band has been for the last 17 years. They wanted to create a project that would engage the Christian community and have the greatest impact. The songs are true to who the band is at their core – rock and worship.
“Our band actually started out as a worship band while we were in college, and that became the launching point for the music we would do for the past 15 years,” shares frontman Jon Micah Sumrall. “I think a lot of people think that worship music and rock music are at odds with one another. I think one of the really unique things about our band is the ability to blend these two worlds together.”
ALPHA / OMEGA‘s track listing is below and features a new version of “Strong Tower,” the title track from the RIAA Gold Certified album as well as the debut single “King Of My Heart,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Soft AC chart. Watch the lyric video below:
Kutless continues to focus on sharing the Gospel with a younger generation that is searching for answers. In 2012, the band formed a non-profit called EOTA (End Of The Age) Ministries to help create and hostevents around the world. The band has performed all across Eastern Europe including Ukraine and Belarus, where they have seen more than 40,000 make commitments to Christ.
“We know that Kutless has a powerful platform that can be used to share the Gospel and impact peoples’ lives,” explains Sumrall. “While we want everyone to hear and respond to the Gospel, we have been focusing our efforts on reaching the Millennial generation, which statistically has become one of the most secularized and difficult generations to reach in recent history. Over the past few years we have been hosting free, large scale outreach events where we have seen thousands of young people make decisions for Christ.”
