Bellarive Release Second Album 'Before There Was'

Jul 23 2014

Bellarive have released their second album 'Before There Was' this week. The album is touted as congregational and yet creative, a compilation of songs written for anyone hoping to make sense out of life and what God is doing in the midst of it.

Describing the inspiration behind the album in an exclusive interview with Louder Than The Music, the band said, "Almost all of the inspiration for the record 'Before There Was' comes from the teachings and revelations unpacked in the book of Ephesians. In these scriptures, Paul paints the picture of God's love and grace with such an eternal scope that it’s almost paralyzing. It leaves you stunned with the most breathtaking sense of Gods supremacy and His purpose for creation."

"Ephesians says that even before the foundations of the earth, God had us in mind and set out to make us a part of his family through Christ. It’s overwhelming to think that God desires union with His creation and even before time itself, He set out the make it possible. He would go to such great lengths to set us free. It was his plan from the very start. The songs on this record are a response to this eternal covenant."


Bellarive is comprised of Curran, Melissa Mage (vocals, percussion), Mike Mage (programming, guitars, vocals), Josh Luker (bass, percussion) and Kenny Werner (drums). The band is touring extensively throughout the summer at festivals and student camps, with a European festival run in August including 3 UK dates, New Wine (5th), CreationFest (6-7th), Life Church Bradford (8th).
