Chicago-based Vertical Worship is announcing the release of their latest album Bright Faith Bold Future, available everywhere on April 6. The new album is their fifth release with Essential Worship/Provident Label Group/Sony Music since 2012 and was recorded at Harvest Bible Chapel's Chicago Cathedral campus at the end of last year.

As part of the project, Vertical Worship has so far released three videos, "Over All I Know" and "Hallelujah Amen" which were recorded at the Planetarium in Chicago, and "Real Thing" which was captured live during the recording of Bright Faith Bold Future. The songs "Real Thing" and "Over All I Know" have already amassed more than 500k streams across streaming platforms, while "Hallelujah Amen" was released last Friday and another song "Yes I Will" is slated for release this week on Good Friday.

Luke MacDonald, who is Executive Ministry Pastor of Vertical Worship, explains how the album came about: "As we prepared to write songs for this album, we recognized that for many people, there are legitimate reasons to be angry, to be afraid, to look at the future with doubt. The world is shouting fear...but we simply can't."

"We've seen too much. He's good. He's kind. His promises are true," MacDonald says. "So whether we feel like it or not, whether we can see it right now or not, we march forward in faith; we shout faith into the fear. We rest in faith and knowledge that our God is over all we could ever know and that gives us a bright faith and a bold future."

In April, Vertical Worship is hitting the road with fellow artists Elevation Worship, Bethel Music, Mosaic MSC, and Christine Caine on the "Outcry Tour," visiting 14 cities across the Midwest and the Western United States.
