"Break the Bread" Video Also Releases Today from Innovative New Worship Project Co-Produced by Grammy and Dove Award-winning Christian Music Producer Ed Cash
House of Peace's new CD, Into the Great Unknown,
releases today through City of Peace Media and Capitol Christian Distribution. 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 9, 2015) Into the Great Unknown, the debut full-length project from south Florida based worship band House of Peace, releases to brick & mortar retailers today from City of Peace Media and Capitol Christian Distribution.  

Along with the CD, City of Peace Media is also releasing House of Peace's "Break the Bread" video today. To view the video, visityoutu.be/FkXB5H6Ovy.  

The 11-song project celebrates the band's credo of diversity through unity by incorporating a broad range of contemporary musical styles paired with ancient, time-honored theological themes. The result is a listening experience that is at once God-honoring, ear-pleasing and soul-refreshing.

Grammy and Dove Award-winning Christian music producer Ed Cash and his brother Scott Cash produced half of the songs on the CD. House of Peace's David Liscum and Yochanan Marcellino produced two songs each and Cody Norris produced one song, as did Klaus Badelt.

While frontman David Liscum wrote or co-wrote every song on the project, he is quick to point out that House of Peace is a band, and not a solo effort. Liscum is joined by an eclectic group of musicians including guitarist Jeff Maldonado, drummer Seadric Crawford, Ryan Horner on bass and Maldonado's wife Christine on percussions and background vocals. The band was initially featured on the City of Peace compilation project, I Stand With Israel, and Liscum later teamed with label head Yochanan Marcellino to pen "New Life," the song that would become the theme for the feature film The Identical, starring Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta and Blake Rayne.

"David is hugely involved with our label and with our film company," says City of Peace Media's Jordan Marcellino. "He's a great guy with a wonderful heart and a true worshipper. These songs are responses to God's glory, God's change, God's touch, God's calling."

Into the Great Unknown is an apt title for the project, according to Liscum. "It's about the journey we all go through with God, a journey of moving from faith to faith where you have to deal with a lot of unknowns. Sometimes, you just have to learn to let go."

Part of the letting go process involved bringing others alongside to help in the creative process, including Christian music uber-producer Ed Cash, who brought his own flourishes to the project. Cash admires the way House of Peace fuses deep theological insights with lush, accessible, contemporary melodies, and even connects with one of the great traditional hymns of the church. "It is a really beautiful picture of Jesus," Cash says. "I love the tribute it pays to the Old Testament, showing how Christ demonstrated His love for us by placing His blood on our hearts."

Into the Great Unknown opens with the lovely and encouraging "Passover Lamb," which draws imagery from the classic hymn, "Nothing But The Blood." The song segues effortlessly into the acoustic guitar-driven communion song, "Break the Bread." The celebration of the glory of God continues with the shimmering worship aria, "King of the Universe." The mood shifts to one of reverential awe on "New Life," as Liscum ponders the twists and turns of life. "I finally found what I've been searching for," he sings. "It's been there all the time, right before my very eyes!"

Ethereal synths and thudding tom toms accentuate the engaging praise aria, "King of Israel." Acoustic guitars take center stage on the horizontally-directed song of encouragement, "Let Us Be One." The acoustic guitars remain, but the direction shifts toward vertical worship on the gorgeous song of adoration, "Praise Your Name Forever," which prominently features Christine Maldonado on BGVs.

The softly rocking "Glory to Your Name" continues the joyful praise theme, as Liscum exults, "Everyone will praise! Everyone will say, Glory to your name!" The band maintains its reverential prayerful posture while kicking up the tempo on the anthemic, "Rejoice." Engaging piano lines embellish the declaration song, "He Will Reign," before the project closes with the lush and evocative "One Child," the New Life Theme from the feature film The Identical, performed by the Chinese Symphony Orchestra.

While House of Peace is thrilled with how their debut project turned out, they insist their goal is really not about just producing a CD, but about producing disciples of Jesus.

"We are passionate about music and worship because we realize how powerful the combination is as a tool for righteousness," Liscum explains. "We're not just another Christian band with a CD to peddle. We are a worship band, but evangelism is always a component of what we do. We want to go into the great unknown and reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

About Into the Great Unknown - The story behind the title

The meaning behind "Into the Great Unknown." If you ever been to a place in life that you didn't understand, it can be extremely difficult. Sometimes life mounds a pile of challenges you're way,
maybe even extremely painful, or hurtful. You might be overwhelmed beyond you're wildest dreams.

This is a difficult place to be, however we have a choice. A choice to be afraid of the mysteries, things we don't understand, or to pursue God for understanding. To have joy in the mysteries! "Into the great Unknown" God's calling us to a place of deeper trust with Him. By letting go with complete trust knowing and having faith that God is good, and he is leading you to a good place. We might not be able to see or understand, but our source of rest comes from spending time with Him. It can be a battle, and may not be perfect, and that's ok. We may have to reach out to others.

I had a really good friend, who is a incredible worship leader, say "Bro you just got to have joy in
the mysteries" It didn't register for 2 weeks. Afterwards it hit me, I had great joy knowing that God was going to lead me through the great unknown, and I could have joy without knowing anything in the most difficult of times. (This was a long season of testing, trials, and over all difficulty)

We have to willfully walk to that place, or we will never fully get everything God has for us.

Our hope doesn't come because we know the outcome. our hope comes because of who we know (The Lord)

One day listening to Oceans it hit me deeply, "You call me upon the waters, 'The great unknown' where feet may fail, and there I find you in the mystery, in Oceans deep, my faith will stand.

We find God in the mystery, when we let go, and allow God to call us out into the deep waters. (without kicking and screaming).

Trust God in the deep deep waters!

Into the Great Unknown is a hard place, but it can be a great place of joy, if we allow it. And there is where you will find God in the mystery! Trust Trust Trust!

King of Israel - About the Song

King of Israel was inspired by a sermon I heard by Ray Hughes at my church. Ray Hughes is a great music historian. I was captivated and fascinated by his story, about Handel, and the history behind Handel, and the Messiah Chorus.

As a writer, I like to honor the great writers of old, and tap into what was in their
hearts at the time. With so much paganism in Christmas, I wanted to connect with something of value, that would Honor God. When you listen to the Hallelujah Chorus, it is really deep.

Stories about Handel even say He was praying, or he was weeping, or he was staring into eternity.

He was definitely a deep writer for his day. I wanted to write a song about Jesus Birth and tie it in somehow with Handel's Messiah.

What I love about most Hymns or older worship songs is that they focus on the righteousness of Christ in us. The Messiah Chorus is not short of themes of Salvation and righteousness.

The Messiah Chorus is a timeless song about the Lord's salvation for us, the very gospel message and that He will Reign Forever.

I wanted to bring in those same elements highlighting Salvation and Righteousness.

King of Israel is not just meant for Christmas time which is why we are including it in our album. The message is that Jesus came so we might become His righteousness.

King of Israel

Bring Your Gifts to the Lord for this day Messiah came.
Righteousness is being restored. Let the Angels rejoice and sing
rejoice and sing

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King

Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel

Glory Shines within the skies Let Angelic hosts proclaim
Join the triumph of the king Salvations victory
Salvations victory

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King

Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel to the King

And He Shall Reign Forever and ever
And He Shall Reign Forever and ever

And He Shall Reign Forever and ever
And He Shall Reign Forever and ever

Hallelujah ah to the King to the King
Hallelujah ah to the King the King of Israel
