Cincinnati, OH hardcore band Spirit and the Bride recently released their debut album, With Eyes and Ears to See and Hear, and today HM is proud to premiere the first single from the album, “Name Above All Names.” The band recently signed on with OnTheAttack Records for the release. The seven-track album dropped March 3 and was recorded by Eric Tuffendsam at Moonlight Studios with the help of Jeff Stuckel (Keyoung).

We spoke with vocalist Josh Simmons about the song:

“‘Name Above All Names’ was a song we wrote specifically to give glory to the name of Jesus. We’ve kept that as a general theme for all of our music throughout the years; however, this was the first time we had decided to shine a light on certain attributes. Jesus is our Provider, our Healer, our Banner and our Peace. It’s the worship song of our heart and something to move around to as well. One faith! One God! One baptism!”

The band counts Revelation 22:17 as a core tenant of their belief as a band: “‘Come!’ Whoever is thirst, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”
