One of the world's biggest selling Christian bands, Casting Crowns, is set to release their seventh studio album 'Thrive' on 28th January 2014.
The forthcoming album comes more than two years since the band's acclaimed album 'Come to the Well' and includes the new lead single 'All You've Ever Wanted'.
Accompanying the anticipated record is Casting Crowns lead singer, Mark Hall's newest book 'Thrive - Digging Deep, Reaching Out'. The book hits retailers on 11th February 2014 and includes powerful stories and teaching for those looking to take the next step of faith.
Working again with veteran industry producer Mark Miller, half of the record follows the theme of Reaching Out with songs like the upbeat, folk anthem and title track 'Thrive'. The remaining half of the record centers on the theme of Digging Deep with songs like the haunting and vulnerable ballad 'Broken Together' that encourages couples in whatever season they are in, as well as the reflective lead single 'All You've Ever Wanted'.
"The idea of THRIVE came out of our student ministry and what we've been teaching for years on what a believer looks like," says Casting lead singer, Mark Hall. "This record and book is an effort to draw a picture of what a believer would look like if they dug into their roots and understood God and themselves more. We must first learn who God is and who we are. With that, half of our record is all about learning who God is and who you are. The other half is about how that works out. How are you going to get out there and let God live His life through you?"
In support of the new record, Casting Crowns has also announced its upcoming national tour, 'The Thrive Tour', which will feature Laura Story and For King & Country and will kick off in Lexington, Kentucky on 20th February 2014.
