"We’re so excited to announce that MercyMe has begun writing & recording new songs for our forthcoming album releasing March 31st 2017", confirmed the band.
"For this, our NINTH studio album, we wanted to try something completely different: we want you to come along on the journey with us. Hear the music first. Get MercyMe memorabilia and cool, exclusive merch items.
All of us in the band (Bart, Mike, Nathan, Robby, and Barry) are thrilled for the opportunity to have you with us, supporting and collaborating as we make this new music.
God has been so faithful to us over all these years of music & ministry, and you’ve been a huge part of that. We’re so excited to be taking that to the next level here at PledgeMusic!"
