If You Died Tonight
Label: Fervent Records/Word
The band's first studio release in three years includes the straightforward lyrics, stellar musicianship and camaraderie we've come to expect, but Love Come to Lifealso chronicles a painful period for the group. A devastating fire and health issues forced them to put their faith into action in ways they never had before. This resulted in wrenchingly honest tracks like "Save My Life." But this is a "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" kind of band, and they only talk about the bad to point out how good God is in the midst of it. Far from a downer, this is hooky, heartfelt, worshipful pop.
