ALBUM REVIEW: WORSHIP MOB - CARRY THE FIRE

LISTEN TO OUR RECENT PODCAST WITH WORSHIP MOB HERE.

WorshipMob is a Colorado collective of worship leaders and musicians who have connected with a global audience through over 8 million Youtube views of their impassioned, home-grown videos. Founded by Colorado Springs worship leaders Sean Mulholland and Garrett Chynoweth almost four years ago, the group began as a weekly gathering between two local worship teams. Today, the “Mob” represents 25 local churches through 70-80 ministry leaders who meet weekly to worship, pray together and encourage one another. Though, as Mulholland states, the meetings are “open to anyone who wants to come soak in the presence of God.”

For the first time, Worship Mob will share their songs through a full-length album

For the first time, Worship Mob will share their songs through a full-length album, Carry the Fire, which Integrity will release March 3rd as a physical CD and as a digital album through service providers such as iTunes and Amazon. The project will consist of 12 tracks, including some of Worship Mob’s most popular “covers” and original compositions that reflect their heart for unified, creative & passionate expressions of worship.

Carry the Fire is a breath of fresh air that boldly proclaims the reality of the Fathers heart. Through their lyrics and melodies, WorshpMob skillfully and passionately reveals their identity as Sons and Daughters of Abba. Their music and style carry a much different feel than many of the artist or worship band records that are common today. With a mob style sound, the lyrics and melodies stay fresh with a sense of expectancy and anticipation that lead the listener deeper into a worship encounter.

The track "Our Father Has Won" really sums up the heart of the project:

"Once broken and guilty
Now drowning in mercy
All curses undone
Our Father has won

In bondage no longer
Now free sons and daughters
Made whole by the blood
Our Father has won

Identity restored
Unveiled our eyes to see again
So let the anthems rise
Unlock our minds to dream again"

This close knit mob of lovers and dreamers are setting a new bar for worship and community.

This close knit mob of lovers and dreamers are setting a new bar for worship and community. On another track, "Arrested by Grace", the story of grace continues:

"You call me worthy, shame flooded by Mercy's sea
Forever forgiven, a new life has risen in me

Righteous and holy, sin always and fully erased
Beloved, accepted, my fall was arrested by Grace

Adopted by Perfection You rejected my rejection
Made whole by resurrection...I'm Yours"

Another track that stands out from the rest is an anthem entitled "Downpour". The words "I love, I love Your presence" repeat mesmerizingly throughout the chorus capturing and releasing a deep desire for the presence of God to be nearer than ever before. With passion and a never back down attitude, this song brings the listener into an encounter with the presence that is contagious. This song has the potential to be sung in a group setting with very powerful results.

More than just another record, Carry the Fire is the result of years of pursuing His presence and of the mob pursuing connection with each other.
