Modern worship band Hillsong UNITED presents We’re All In This Together, a feature-length social justice documentary that was filmed over a period of two years and releases on Sparrow Records July 26.  Following theatre screenings of the DVD last year in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, South Africa and New Zealand, the project is available now for the first time on DVD and includes the full two-hour film documentary, five UNITED music videos, plus a bonus CD of 10 UNITED songs, including “The Stand,” “Hosanna” and “From The Inside Out.” (See full track listing below.)

The We’re All In This Together DVD follows UNITED as they travel across six continents, 42 nations and 93 cities in a cross-cultural journey of music, animation, interviews and live action, documenting stories of hope, love, loss and sacrifice.  As UNITED crisscross the globe they are confronted, and ultimately overwhelmed, by the stories of remarkable individuals facing injustice and the uncomfortable paradox of being united in worship, yet divided in circumstance.  We’re All In This Together is the band’s hopeful response, knowing that if their entire focus is directed only to what happens on stage, then they have missed the point altogether.  The film demonstrates the potential impact of showing the love of God toward others – not just to preach the Good News, but together, to be the Good News.

“I am convinced that this film is a catalyst to change lives, to change perceptions, to influence and inspire churches and to equip generations,” says Brian Houston, Hillsong Church Sr. Pastor.  “Pastors, I pray you will get a hold of this film and share it with those in your congregations, encouraging the people around you to take personal responsibility for their part in the greater story. The We’re All In This Together film is about meeting the real needs of humanity in practical ways.  It is about loving one another and the timeless message that Jesus died for EVERYONE that we might live life to its fullest.”

Taking the message of the new DVD on the road, UNITED returns to North America in August after becoming the first Christian artist to sell out Staples Center in Los Angeles, logging sold out events at major venues coast-to-coast and gathering Pollstar Magazine’s April 11 “Hotstar” cover feature. While on tour, and in response to nationwide food bank deficits, the band is partnering with local churches and agencies to again facilitate an I-HEART :: This Means Love Food Drive in each city they visit (http://www.i-heart.org/).

Singing the favorites that have helped sell over 11 million albums while on tour, the band will also play songs from AFTERMATH, UNITED’s acclaimed 2011 release that topped retail sales charts internationally, hit No. 17 on the Billboard Top 200 and continues to be its fastest selling album ever.  The August tour itinerary follows:

Fri, Aug. 5 Tampa, FL SPT Forum (Arena)
Sat Aug. 6 Miami, FL AmericanAirlines
Mon Aug. 8 Jacksonville, FL Moran Theatre
Tue Aug. 9 Greenville, SC BILO Center
Thu Aug. 11 Philadelphia, PA Tower Theatre
Sat Aug. 13 Toronto, ON Molson Canadian Amphitheatre
Mon Aug. 15 Grand Rapids Van Andel Arena
Tue Aug. 16 Columbus OH Veterans Memorial
Thu Aug. 18 Nashville, TN Allen Arena, Lipscomb University
Fri Aug. 19 Greensboro, NC GSO – Coliseum
Sat Aug. 20 Columbia, MD Merriweather Post Pavilion

Born out of the Youth Movement of Australia’s Hillsong Church, and fronted by worship leaders Joel Houston, Jad Gillies and Jonathon “JD” Douglass, the UNITED team is also an evolving collaboration of pastors, worship leaders, musicians and songwriters – all intentional about giving voice to a generation passionate about God. Having led worship in churches, stadiums and open fields around the world, UNITED’s AFTERMATH is the first new album from the band in over two years.  The recording sparked the band’s biggest radio hit to date, “Search My Heart,” and offers an unabashedly creative collection of new songs that celebrates the One who saves, redeems and is the true representation of Hope in a world where hopelessness abounds.

More information on UNITED can be found at www.hillsongunited.com and www.facebook.com/hillsongunited, where the band has over 2.2 million friends.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
