Known for being pioneers of modern worship, Irish band Rend Collective released their new single, "Rescuer (Good News)" to fans digitally on Friday, Aug. 25. The first song off of their anticipated album, the new single is set to impact radio on Sept. 1.  

"There's a lot of bad news out there, but no matter what we have good news, and that good news has a name: Jesus Christ. Today there is nothing more powerful we can do in the darkness, in the bleakness, then proclaim the good news, then proclaim the gospel, and that's why we wrote this song," says band member Gareth Gilkeson.

"The good Lord came to seek and save and maybe that's a message you need to hear today. Maybe you need to know that you can be rescued. Maybe you just need to celebrate the fact that you have been rescued. Jesus is our rescuer, and there's good news in Him." 

Coinciding with their single released on Friday, the group also unveiled a new music video with a sneak peek offered to fans through social media a day before the video's release. Shot in the streets of Ireland, the carefree nature of the video promotes an inclusive spirit.

Notorious for capturing their audience with their unique sound heard in hit songs like "Build Your Kingdom Here" and "You Will Never Run," the music video for "Rescuer (Good News)" has already gained upwards of 150K views on YouTube since its release, with early radio adds of the song by WayFM, KLOVE and AIR1.

In light of their new single, the group will be headlining the "Good News North American Tour Pt. 1" this fall, hitting 26 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
