New apps from Rend Collective Experiment

Charting a unique course, Rend Collective Experiment is a group of friends collectively wondering how to make sense of the conundrum of life, God and community.

On its journey, they have released the internationally acclaimed debut album, Organic Family Hymnal, sold out a tour in major markets across the US with Chris Tomlin, and used their iPhones to record worship music (see it here at www.youtube.com).

Now for the first time, the band offers a free “Welcome To The Family!” application for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android device users.

In this app, users can watch Rend Collective Experiment music videos, access band blogs and tour news and even access tutorials to learn how to play the band’s songs. They will also have access to sheet music for the Organic Family Hymnal album, as well as the newly recorded song, “You Are My Vision,” which became a fan favorite on the recent tour with Chris Tomlin. NewReleaseTuesday.com called Rend Collective’s version of the hymn “an amazing performance” as a Lancaster Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster Sunday News writer said the “group’s altered, powerfully-done version” of the song was one of many highlights during the band’s set.

Created with The Church App by Subsplash, users can download the App, and learn more about it, at these links:

A movement of 20-somethings that began in Ireland and spread across Europe before hitting the Americas, Rend Collective Experiment has been endorsed by Dr. Tony Campolo, Francis Chan and David Crowder, and acclaimed by Worship Leader, CCM, Worship Musician, Rhapsody, Indie Vision Music, Gospel Music Channel, CBA Retailers + Resources, Crosswalk.com, JesusFreakHideout.com, HollywoodJesus and many more.

With melodies, harmonic progression and lyrics that are scriptural and contemporary, fresh and ancient, Rend Collective Experiment is a nod to the places in Scripture where it says to “rend your hearts” and not your garments, a bold call to be genuine. “We’re a ‘collective’ that is not into the celebrity aspect of the worship scene - a bunch of guys and ladies, a body, an experiment in progress,” explains Rend Collective Experiment member Gareth Gilkeson.
