According to a press release, Sleeping Giant are finishing up the recording of their forthcoming album Kingdom Days In An Evil Age, which will be released through Century Media imprint Ain’t No Grave Records.
“We are very excited to be working with Ain’t No Grave Recordings,” said bassist JR Bermuda. “For the type of thing we are trying to do, to be more ministry than band, to release a sound that not many people are doing yet, ANGR was the clear choice. We knew we had to completely surpass the first two albums in any way possible.”
Bermuda continued: It needed to be heavier, angrier, and bolder. We love those songs, but this new album has a different energy on it. We all have urgency and stirring in our spirits. That may be a phrase thrown around in Christian culture, but this album to us represents what we live for: the kingdom of God- which is bigger than church, bigger than Sleeping Giant, bigger than whatever culture or people group we are a part of.
“The Kingdom is now, and the world needs God’s justice to come, which is always FOR people, and never against them. So with the authority we have been given in Jesus, and the platform we have been blessed with in the band we thought, if the whole world was watching, what would we say, or better yet, what would we do? The answer is declaration of the glory and goodness of God to a world filled with injustice against peoples, and nations in peril, miracles to display His power, physical and emotional healing to display His love, and break the chains of the captives.”
Take a fucking breath, dude. I kid, I kid. He’s excited. I get it. And I appreciate dudes who say more than “We’re psyched to be part of the roster” when there’s news of a signing.
