Watch the Smallbone brothers discuss how they tapped into their own feelings of forgiveness, desperation, and hope to create their most heartfelt & personal record in an exclusive video here.

Joel and Luke Smallbone state: “Burn the Ships, to us, is a special album of personal discovery and honest expression. It shows the truly cathartic power of music, that allowed us to process some of life’s challenges and what we had faced before and while we were making it.  That’s what makes this debut so special to us – how the music remained true to us and authentic to those listening.  A big thank you to everyone who discovered Burn the Ships, it’s success is because of you – see you on the road!”
