MELBOURNE, Australia—For centuries, words and instruments have painted pictures of adoration to God that have echoed off the walls of cathedrals and filled the air of secret home churches. Yet, much like the people singing those sacred lyrics, the idea of worship and its musical sound have been on a journey.
Over the past 20 years, Integrity Music recording artist Planetshakers Band has been forging new frontiers, pushing the boundaries of what modern worship sounds and looks like, and they have found a unique voice for conveying praise and love to God. Building on a legacy of innovation, their textural approach has resonated with a global audience, packing out arenas around the world. With the March 17, 2017 release of their new EP, Legacy—Part 1: Alive Again (buy), recorded in Manila, Philippines and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, they expand their sound even further.

Their notion of what worship is goes far beyond music. For these international influencers, it is about connecting how we live with the vulnerability and passion of the lyrics they sing to bring together a picture of what it means to be madly in love with the Creator of the universe, Jesus. And for two decades, Planetshakers’ annual conference has been the best place to experience this union of action and music.
“There’s an atmosphere that electrifies your spirit when you come together with the people of God to put action to faith, and that’s always been the hallmark of every recording we’ve done,” said Planetshakers Senior Pastor and founder, Russell Evans. “When you take the barriers off of worship, there’s just a difference that’s hard to explain. You have to experience it for yourself.”
This April 10-13, 2017 thousands of people will come together in Melbourne, Australia, for the 20th anniversary of the conference, eager to dive into this unique musical and spiritual environment that continues to redefine the parameters of worship. Once again, Planetshakers will record the event live for their next album, which will be released through Integrity to a global audience this fall.
