Rend Collective started in 2004 as a group of confused 20 somethings trying to figure out life, God and community. Then in 2007 it grew into a collective of musicians and artists trying to share with the world what they were learning. Rend are more than a band, they are a group of people who share the same thoughts and feelings.
In 2010 the world first got to hear the band through their album 'Organic Family Hymnal', which was recorded at Castlewellan Castle in Northern Ireland. The next album soon followed, 'Homemade Worship By Handmade People', but did the guys stumble with the pressure of recording that difficult second album? Not at all.
Next, the Northern Ireland worship band will release their new album 'The Art Of Celebration' this March. The album will include forthcoming first single and video 'My Lighthouse'. Rend will be joining Kari Jobe for a major, 30-plus-city tour in the US that begins on 27th February and runs until 13th April, plus a six date UK tour in May. (Read more)
