LOVE, the name of the new, highly energetic and emotional record by inhabited (http://www.inhabitedtheband.com), is an album that truly lives up to its title. The record takes the listener through an emotional ride of real life experiences ranging from the tragedy of losing a loved one to the trials that come with following ones dreams. At the same time, Inhabited continues to blend in some of the unheard stories of the wounded they have met, in hopes to comfort those in similar situations, and inspire others to love the people around them that are hurting or in need.
While the album is highly missional in content, it also unveils the different stages of a Christians journey by exposing and confronting the frustrations, hurts, fears, passions, and losses that each member of the band undeniably went through last year. In the wake of their last major release, The Revolution, Inhabited experienced a mountain of hurdles, including the losing a family member, parting ways with some of their extremely close band members, and having to make numerous decisions knowing that these choices would ultimately determine the future of their lives. They basically had a moment of truth within the band, and had to ask themselves some very personal questions. They had two choices, they could either press on or be overcome.
Despite all of these barriers, Inhabited has remained determined to keep their course, as declared in their pop anthem-like track, We Will Live. It is at this song that we find one of Inhabiteds major aspirations for LOVE. It is obvious, they want this record to serve as an encouragement to the down trodden with the aim that it would enable the broken-hearted to raise a banner of Hope, and carry it through the hard, lonely valleys that life brings.
Ultimately we want this record to stir the listener to truly seek. We want them to hear and know the LOVE of God in a way they may never have realized. It is only His love that has strengthened [Inhabited] to press on through the thick and the thin, and if He can do it for us, He can definitely do it for anyone says lead singer, Sara Acker.
We live in a love sick society, where we continue to substitute a bunch a junk` for stuff that really matters, which always leaves us empty. It is our passion to love people, and meet them where they are, no matter who they are, just like Jesus did. And if we can do that, I believe we can change our world!
