Rend Collective goes back to its roots to bring simplicity and authenticity in worship with their new album Campfire II: Simplicity. As a follow-up to their hugely successful Campfire album, they capture openness and vulnerability with their own unique brand of worship songs with a community of friends.
Hailing from a small town off the coast of Northern Ireland, Rend Collective is a celebration band, worshiping for God’s Glory. In their formative years they gathered at Rend, a ministry for young people seeking an authentic and raw expression of church. The band has garnered international success with sold-out headlining tour dates and their recent album debuting #1 on every iTunes Christian Albums Chart in six countries. The band has proven to be an international fan favorite and is one of the leading voices in modern worship.
