Mercy Me Prepare For New Studio Album 'The Hurt And The Healer'

Mar 05 2012

MercyMe release their new album 'The Hurt And The Healer' on 22nd May 2012. Produced by Brown Bannister and Dan Muckala the album features signature MercyMe anthems, engaging pop songs and worshipful and intimate moments. With an uninterrupted string of 23 number 1 career singles, with songs like their worldwide hit 'I Can Only Imagine', the award-winning and multi-platinum selling band look set to have another hit with the title track already picking up airplay in the US and available to download as a digital single.

"The Hurt & The Healer is a celebration of that moment when these two worlds collide... the deep need for healing and the God who provides it" remarks lead vocalist Bart Millard. "For whatever reason, God has called us to help people through the healing process, so as we began this project, we thought, 'do we even try to fight it, this is kind of who we are,'.

The idea is to create an album to help bring healing to people, but not just healing; even in the midst of life's worst moments, there's this irony of feeling more alive than anytime before; that moment when we embrace our kids a little tighter and we reevaluate what's important in life,"
he continues. "The whole album revolves around this common theme, but it's not all really heavy. We hope it helps people get to a better place in these moments that seem to cripple us at times."

On 19th April, just after closing out another successful 'Rock and Worship Roadshow Tour', MercyMe will embark on a headline tour also featuring Chris August and Moriah Peters. 'The Hurt And The Healer' is the follow up to the band's 2010 album 'The Generous Mr Lovewell' which entered the Billboard's Top 200 SoundScan Chart in the USA at number 3, giving the band the highest chart debut of their career.
