It has been nearly a year since Aaron Gillespie released his solo worship project Anthem Song to rave reviews and sales success. Today he follows up to this well received project with the release of an EP Echo Your Song (Live) on BEC Recordings. This six-song EP features songs from Anthem Song, two Hillsong covers as well as worship favorites from his tour.

Echo Your Song is already in the Top 10 on the iTunes Christian chart just hours after releasing. This project is available at all digital outlets including iTunes and Amazon and physically at the BEC Recordings’ store as well as at Aaron’s live shows.

This project was recorded last April at Nine O Five (C4 Church in Ajax, ON).  Beginning this week, he will be on a cross Canadian tour along with Parachute Band (dates below).  This tour is sponsored by Nine O Five church and aptly called the “Nine O Five” tour.  Aaron will be performing with AJ Cheek.

“This past year we have seen God move in so many ways, and I really feel like this recording captured this,” shares Gillespie.  “Everything is for His glory, listen to this and be blessed not by the music, but by what He has done for you.”
About Anthem Song and Aaron Gillespie:
In 2011, Aaron Gillespie released his solo venture, Anthem Song, on BEC Recordings to what he hoped will be a new generation of worshippers. On release day, Anthem Song, immediately charted on iTunes debuting at No. 17 on overall iTunes Albums chart, No. 2 on the Christian iTunes Albums chart and No. 1 on Canada’s iTunes Christian Chart. Anthem Song also charted in the Top 10 at No. 8 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart last year during its street week.
This album also garnered rave reviews from the press with Alternative Press’ 4-star review calling Anthem Song’s “greatest quality is its unapologetic fearlessness,” Christianity Today saying “Anthem Song is devoid of any preoccupation with ‘self,’ consistently pointing to God’s goodness and glory,” and AbsolutePunk calling it “a true worship record at its finest.”

Anthem Song was sparked by a trip to Uganda with Compassion International.  Following this trip, Gillespie retired his role as drummer for the popular metalcore band Underoath and began writing and recording for Anthem Song.  He remains the frontman of the indie-rock band he founded,
The Almost.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
