Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers recorded Heaven On Earth Part Two during Planetshakers Kingdom Conference, held in Melbourne, Australia April 4-7, 2018 at Hisense Arena. The arena park, where the world normally watches the Australian Open Tennis tournament and other prestigious international sporting competitions, was turned into a “house of worship” with the passionate new songs by Planetshakers Band being broadcast live from America’s largest faith-based television network, Daystar, into more than 180 countries worldwide.
Releasing July 13, Heaven On Earth Part Two will be available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Google Play and more digital and streaming outlets internationally through a newly signed agreement with Venture3 Media (V3M) headed by music industry veteran Steve Nicolle.
“I am truly honored to represent Planetshakers in this exciting season of their ministry,” says Nicolle, a former executive with Integrity Music and Kingsway North America who launched Bethel Music, Jesus Culture, Rend Collective and All Sons & Daughters. “My mission is to grow dramatically the impact and influence of Planetshakers ministry and songs on a global basis. The songs this team have been writing are some of the best praise and worship songs with which I have ever been associated.”
“We are delighted to have signed with V3M. Steve and his team have already created so much momentum and energy while simultaneously understanding our heart, passion and calling,” says Russell Evans, Senior Pastor of Planetshakers. “I’m looking forward to a very long and fruitful partnership that benefits the kingdom of God globally.”
The four-song, nearly 25-minute Heaven On Earth Part Two is a tangible, intentional expression of worshippers collectively pursuing the presence of God, all led by Planetshakers’ worship leaders Sam Evans, Joth Hunt (who also produced and mixed the EP), BJ Pridham, Rudy Nikkerud, Chelsi Nikkerud and a full team of musicians, dancers and more.
In addition to the EP, four exclusive videos featuring a multi-camera visual experience captured at the events will be revealed. The recordings capture the gathering’s dynamic atmosphere seasoned with singing, call and response, dancing and shouts of praise.
The full track listing follows:
1) “Move Out Of My Way (Live In Melbourne)”
2) “Electric Atmosphere (Live In Melbourne)”
3) “I Want Jesus (Live In Melbourne)”
4) “Draw Close Again (Live In Melbourne)”

Available everywhere great worship music is found, the songs, “There Is No One Like You (Live In Asia),” “The Greatest (Live In Asia),” “Above All Names (Live In Asia)” and “Not Alone (Live In Asia),” have already been streamed more than 1.3 million times on YouTube alone.

Since its inaugural gathering in 1997, Planetshakers has gone on to become a global movement through its annual conferences, international church campuses and numerous live recordings, including multiple Dove Award-nominated projects. The Australia-based collective, led by Senior Pastors Russell and Sam Evans, has hosted gatherings in cities around the world while also launching Planetshakers Church in 2004. With over 14,000 members in Australia, Planetshakers Church is one of the fastest growing churches in that nation’s history, stretching across five campuses in Melbourne with additional locations inSingapore; Cape Town, South Africa; Geneva, Switzerland and Austin, TX.
Celebrating over 20 years of ministry, Planetshakers’ latest CD/DVD project, Legacy, honors the countless ways God has used the ministry and music of Planetshakers over the past two decades to raise up a generation of Christ followers with a clear vision of taking the Gospel to nations… “empowering generations to win generations.”
