Northern Ireland band Bluetree have announced the forthcoming international release of their new album, 'Worship & Justice', on 26th August 2014 following their signing with Integrity Music.
The Belfast-based band, led by founder Aaron Boyd, have been recording the album in Colorado Spring recently. The new album is expected to include the band's song 'Jesus Healer' (see video below) along with a cadre of new songs.
Bluetree are best known for penning popular worship song, 'God Of This City', which has been recorded by a variety of artists, most notably Chris Tomlin and the Passion movement.
They are also well known for their passionate pursuit of social justice, working hand-in-hand with local and international ministries to end human trafficking. "Our response to worship is mission and justice, taking all that we have and allowing others who do not have to benefit," explains Boyd. "We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and bring injustice from the darkness into the light."
The band works to raise money and support for ministries such as Ratanak International, World Orphans and Christian Freedom International and also provides on-the-ground support, often traveling the globe for mission support in Cambodia, Thailand, Haiti and Burma (Myanmar).
