We are excited to release our 5th full-length album, a CD/DVD combo entitled Come Away. One thing different about this album from our others is we got to keep extended versions of every song on the DVD, a first for us. With over 12 minutes of extended worship and 5.1 surround sound audio, this DVD is a must have. Come Away was recorded live at the Jesus Culture Redding Conference to a full house of passionate youth and young adults.
"Our prayer is that this album will be more than just another release from the Jesus Culture Band, but it will release a sound that will capture the hearts of a generation who are looking for something more". -Banning Liebscher, Director of Jesus Culture Ministries

CHRIS QUILALA: One Week To Go Nov 15, 2010
The band and I are on our way back from Norway right now, we had such a great time over there! We got to sing one of the new songs from the new album during worship, it was amazing worshiping with the vikings (Norwegians) over there and getting to share our new music with them. I can't believe the album will be out next week (the day after my b-day) we are really excited to share it with you and are looking forward to the next time we get to be with you!
CHRIS QUILALA: Recording Nov 9, 2010
Wow, it has been a busy year. Between travel, family and local ministry at Bethel it seems like the year has flown by and yet somehow we managed to fit another recording in the midst of "life". Haha, every time a recording roles around it seems like it sneaks up on us like a ninja, but God.. in His grace always shows up in an amazing way. For me "Come Away" was a return to the raw pursuit of His presence. I think it is easy to get caught up in what you are doing for God and miss out on simply being lost in His presence. Working on this album, either in rehearsal or the actual recording, there were several times I found myself overwhelmed by the goodness of God and was left in tears, in awe of how amazing He really is. One song in particular, "I want to know You" summed up where I have been with God the past few years or so. The simple cry of just saying to God "I want to know You" had been echoing in my heart and mind for a awhile ... so to finally make an attempt to express this cry of my heart in a song was a such a beautiful experience. I hope that this song as well as every song on the album will lead everyone into a place in His presence that they have never experienced before.
KIM WALKER-SMITH: The New Album Oct 28, 2010
Well, it's only a few weeks now until the release of "Come Away"! I'm really excited for this CD! I feel like we keep growing as a team both creatively and relationally and I think this will reflect in the album. We have some really powerful original songs, including one written by a 16 year old girl from Florida! Everybody on the Jesus Culture team has worked really hard, putting in a lot of creative energy, to make this album the best yet. We really are blessed to have such amazing people and friends around us! My prayer for everyone who hear's this album, is that they would encounter God. Our prayer is always that God would be glorified and that people would find themselves lost in His presence, adoring Him in worship.
