Equippers Revolution, the worship team from Auckland, NZ are excited to announce the release of their second album and debut on DREAM Worship, Hands High today. Produced by the entire team in early 2017, the album is the sound of the Revolution Youth Movement and a big creative chapter in the movement story for the team's debut on a label. The up-beat, synth-pop infused track is complemented by strong congregational songs including "Heartbeat", "Wild" and the title track, "Hands High".
Their first album "Thunder", released in 2015, received more spread than initially anticipated, with over half a million streams on Spotify, and it's song "This Is How We Party" being played in church movements globally.
The group has received strong support from leaders and in the press. Check out what people are saying about Hands High:
