We Are Messengers Releases to Rave Reviews

Nashville, Tenn - (April 22, 2016) - Word Records recording artist We Are Messengers has released its highly-acclaimed 14-song self-titled debut. We Are Messengers is the musical and ministry vision of Irishman Darren Mulligan, whose heart is to serve God and to see His radical love transform our lives and our communities.

"When I was a young boy, I dreamed that I would one day be able to write songs that would move people and allow them to feel something true," shares Mulligan. "This album is God’s gift to me and our family. He has allowed us to write songs that speak richly to us, and we believe will reach into the hearts of many."

The music of We Are Messengers is already doing just that. Not only are countless radio stations across the country playing the band's debut single, "Everything Comes Alive," but magazine, newspaper and online features are posting about the album, such as Nashville's The Tennessean, LifeWay's HomeLife, Charisma Magazine, CCM Magazine, Shattered Magazine, and more. Rave music reviews are also touting the raw and honest message behind the "first great debut album of 2016." Here are a few highlights:

"Allow us to introduce you to the first great debut album of 2016...a powerful, oft hypnotic release. Lead single “Everything Comes Alive” has already drawn impressive response at radio...listeners will love uncovering layers like “Ghost,” “I’m on Fire,” “Shadows” and “Giants Fall.” And this doesn’t even touch the album’s most moving track, “I Don’t Have The Answers.” - CCM Magazine (5-star review)

“The messages found throughout these tracks are wonderful, but it is where Mulligan branches into deeper messages that the record truly shines. We Are Messengers has shown a lot of potential for future music with this noteworthy freshman effort.” - JesusFreakHideout.com

"One of 2016's first standout debuts....a healthy dose of standout songs propel this release to become one of the year's most promising debuts." - NewReleaseToday

"We Are Messengers shows a lot of promise and potential. Christian radio fans looking for a fresh new voice will be undoubtedly satisfied with this debut.” - Charisma Magazine

To promote the album's release, We Are Messengers played to more than 600,000 people on Winter Jam's Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 tours. They are now readying for a radio tour, hitting such key markets as Baltimore, Sarasota, Houston, and Nashville. The band will appear at multiple festivals this summer, such as Atlantafest, Spirit West Coast, Rock The Farm, Alive and No Greater Love Festival, and major fall tour plans will be announced in the coming weeks.

We Are Messengers' debut radio single "Everything Comes Alive," is currently top 5 on Billboard's AC Indicator and CHR chart, along with being in the top 10 at NCA. When the song debuted at radio, "Everything Comes Alive" was added at an astounding 52 stations during its first week, with 82 stations, including K-LOVE and Air1, playing the song in its first month out.
