Tenth Avenue North - Title of the next album

The title of our next album will be “the Struggle.”
We’ve sent the final mixes off to get mastered, then we pick the wrapping paper, bundle her up and send her off to your local record store.
Expect a release on August 21st.

We called this project “the Struggle” from the like titled track because we felt this best represented the collection as a whole.
From life to death, birth to final rest, this life is a struggle.
We have a disposition to trials and tribulations in this world, but the one thing we don’t have to work to earn is grace.
Most of the songs come from: coming to reconciliation, dealing with how God drawing you to himself can bring hurt and pain, and prayers of deliverance.

“Hallelujah we are free to struggle. but we’re not struggling to be free. Your blood bought and makes us children- so children drop your chains and sing.”
