NASHVILLE, TN, / DENVER, CO (JULY 14, 2023)
Denver-based worship collective, Red Rocks Worship, releases their new album Ascend. This group has been preparing for more than a year to create this new project, and they are excited to share it with the world today. Celebrating the release, they also premiered the music video for “There’s No Way” (see below).
“Our hope is that no matter where the listener finds themselves on that path, they would take the next step in trusting God and living out the freedom that life with Him provides,” shares Red Rocks Worship. “We pray that through refining and purification, they would find themselves with clean hands and pure hearts, offering the highest praise to Jesus— the hope of the world! We want listeners to realize that no matter where they are in life they can take a step closer to Jesus. We don’t have to earn access, we have been freely given access.”
It’s been two years since Red Rocks Worship released their acclaimed album, Things Of Heaven, and this project is a result of time spent seeking the Lord, laying down pride, and coming back to the foundation of what worship is and who it is ultimately for.
Red Rocks Worship’s Tyler Roberts adds, “We titled the album Ascend after Psalm 24, which states Who can ascend the mountain of God, who can be in the presence of the Lord? Those with clean hands, and those with pure hearts.”
Ascend is filled with songs that have become personal declarations turned into corporate revelations for the church with songs testifying miracles, laying down worry and anxiety, and directly glorifying God. Co-writers on the project include Red Rocks Worship leaders’ Kory Miller, Tyler Roberts, Jessi Robertson as well as renowned songwriters Mia Fieldes, Mitch Wong, Jacob Sooter, Jason Ingram, David Leonard, Daniel Bashta, and Ethan Hulse.
