Portland, OR based band, The Neverclaim, is set to release new album 'The Joy' in July 2015.
The band soared onto musical radars with 2012’s Revival being named a top 10 Worship Leader Magazine album of the year. The recording was followed by the band’s self-titled Essential Records debut in 2013 climbing all the way to No. 34 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers Albums chart and earning a top 5 worship album of the year nod from NewReleaseTuesday.com. Seeking to see lives transformed by experiencing God and His love, and having gone through a series of personal and professional refining, The Neverclaim returns with a fan-driven Pledge Music pre-order campaign for The Joy.
"Over the past two years as a band, we have experienced the greatest fruit of our ministry to date. Thousands have been changed by Christ’s love, all in the midst of personal tragedy, loss, disappointment and challenges we never saw coming,” says The Neverclaim frontman Jeremiah Carlson. “One thing we’ve learned in this last season is that the joy of the Lord is truly our greatest strength. For to know his great love is joy unspeakable and when we know this, we can overcome any trial we face.”
Resolutely moving forward with John 16:33 at heart, Carlson and his band mates Chuck Hill (bass), Mitchell Maldonado (guitar/keys) and Beji George (drums) began working on The Neverclaim’s second studio album, The Joy, with GRAMMY nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning Producer of the Year Ian Eskelin.
“Almost every song on The Joy is centered around the joy of the Lord as our strength - our identity in Christ and the victory that’s won in Christ,” says Carlson. “Not that we shy away from the reality that living in a broken world affects all of us, but despite our hardships, we have access to a greater reality that fills our hearts with joy. We will face battles in life, but Jesus has won the war. We believe people are hungry for authentic joy, a joy that is not based on circumstances, but on the fact that God is for us, so nothing can be against us.”
