Integrity Music announces the April 13 release of Unshakable, the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut from the Baton Rouge, Louisiana band Deluge.
The band’s previous album garnered kudos from fans and critics alike and was named among ChristianityToday.com’s "Favorite Worship Albums of 2008."
Unshakable is a studio-recorded worship album that paints a lyrical picture of a “tried by fire” faith set to an energetic, alt-rock and sometimes experimental soundscape.
Jonathan Stockstill, band frontman and worship pastor at the 10,000+-member Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, penned all of the songs with help from his band mates and in one instance, his brother Joel.
According to Stockstill, the songs are an outpouring of the joy, anger, pain and hope that his family and church experienced over the past two years. This includes the birth of Stockstill’s first child, the loss of his young sister-in-law to cancer and his brother Joel’s lifelong battle with kidney disease.
“We went on a retreat… just the band,” says Stockstill. “A time for us to pray, worship and write together… and songs just flowed out. All of the songs speak of where we’ve been and how we’re pressing through, especially the title track, ‘Unshakable,’ which has really connected with our church and youth group.”
Two other stand-out songs are “Let’s Worship,” a simple plea which features guest vocalist Kari Jobe
, and “Come In My Courts,” by Joel Stockstill’s vision of Heaven.
Digging into the lyrics, it’s easy to see that Stockstill’s brother played an instrumental role in the album’s development. Despite his illness, Joel’s faith and perseverance has influenced growth of the mega church’s youth group to over 7,000 students. Stockstill confirms, “Joel is the inspiration behind the album.”
allows listeners to see their heart through the music. From rock-out moments, to soft worship interludes, Unshakable gives a glimpse into the everyday-life struggles of believers who share a selfless passion for Christ.
Because Unshakable is ideal for both student and church worship bands, Integrity created companion worship resources so that local churches can incorporate Deluge's
songs into their services. These products include CD trax, a songbook and a digital songbook.
Within the U.S., the CD and resource products are distributed to Christian retail stores by Provident-Integrity Distribution. In addition, Integrity Music International will distribute the products to 160 other countries.
