Arden, North Carolina (June 7, 2019) — As their single “Victory Shout,” continues to climb the Southern Gospel radio charts, The Kingsmen have now released their album of the same name, with songs that share messages for daily life and being faithful along the journey to heaven.
“I am so excited about this new recording, Victory Shout! From start to finish it brings the classic Kingsmen sound to a collection of brand new songs written by some of today’s best writers,” says lead singer Chris Bryant. “These songs will bring messages of hope and encouragement to listeners while keeping us all looking forward to what God is going to do! I am honored to be a part of this album and cannot wait to share it with everyone.”
Victory Shout, from Horizon Records, begins on a joyful note with that theme in “Running To Win,” an upbeat song featuring baritone singer Alan Kendall, about continuing to press toward finishing life well. It’s followed by “Just Climb,” a slower tune of encouragement to trust in God and have faith He’ll move mountains in His own time.
The Kingsmen then sing “I’ve Ever Been Glad,” a jubilant quartet song with bass singer Ray Reese taking the lead. Written by Regina Walden, who wrote the group’s recent #1 chart song “Oh Yes I Am,” this song is a true Southern Gospel quartet tune where almost every member has a step-out part on the chorus with a drive that will bring the crowd to their feet.
With a message of hope, encouragement and triumph for Christians, “Victory Shout,” reminds that with steadfast belief in God, our needs will be met in His timing, with tenor Chris Jenkins taking the lead.
The album continues with Biblical stories in the upbeat “Dear John,” about John the Revelator featuring Bryant; a re-recording of “Prodigal Son,” a Kingsmen classic written by Larry Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers’ fame that tells the traditional story of returning home and the power of forgiveness; and in “King of Kings,” which paints a picture of the grandeur of Christ through His time on Earth.
Other songs include the moving “It Still Changes Me” about how the Bible’s message continues to have an impact even as life evolves and “You’ll Move Mountains For Me,” a song about trusting that God will always go above and beyond.
The album closes with “That’s Where You’ll Find Me,” a power ballad featuring Bryant describing the meeting place at Christ’s throne in Heaven. With these songs of worship and praise, The Kingsmen are continuing their far-reaching ministry and legacy.
