Nashville, TN (August 28, 2019)
For parents who are tired of listening to “Baby Shark” on repeat, Rend Collective is releasing an album aimed at kids, but with parental sanity in mind too. The 13-track collection, titled SPARKLE. POP. RAMPAGE, features original songs that teach children character lessons and Bible stories–but done with such great music, that parents won’t believe their ears.
The newly formed Rend Co Kids is not “worship lite” but worship done right, with attention to craftsmanship, imagination, storytelling and artistry as their signature. “We’ve never labored over a record like we have over this kids’ album,” states Chris Llewellyn of Rend Collective and Rend Co Kids. “Kids are the most discerning audience out there—they feel the hollowness of the lackluster, uninspired content that so often is carelessly tossed their way. And they deserve something crafted, customized and carefully considered. So for over 18 months we literally did our very best.”
Wanting to create organic, authentic worship music for kids that upholds the same standards that adults expect in their music, Rend Co. Kids emphasizes craftsmanship in imagination, storytelling and artistry. The lyrics introduce children ages 4-10 to a creative, loving, adventurous God, along with sanity-saving music that moms and dads will want to leave on. The result is something never heard before: an album for children ages 4-10 that they and their parents can equally enjoy together.
To promote the release of the full album, Rend Co. Kids recently debuted music videos for their singles “FUN,” “Feels Good” and “Jericho Song,” which shows the band in a live setting featuring lots of children (including their own).
Releasing alongside SPARKLE. POP. RAMPAGE will be the band’s first illustrated children’s book, My Lighthouse (September 27, 2019), which features a boy named Fynn and his home—a lighthouse.
