Today, for KING & COUNTRY also premiered the stunning music video for the title track “Burn the Ships,” which visually displays the meaning of the record. They filmed the video on Lady Washington and you may recognize the ship as The Interceptor from the film Pirates of the Caribbean.
“Years ago, we learned about an explorer who arrived in a foreign land with his ships and men,” Luke explains. “After they proved too afraid to explore the new territory, the explorer called his men to shoreline and ordered them to ‘burn the ships,’ so they could only move forward, no retreat. So many of us are bound by shame and guilt from our pasts, but there’s hope! Let’s step into a new day together as we share with you our journey, Burn the Ships.” Watch the video and get detailed information HERE.
Burn the Ships is an 11-song collection that adeptly dissects the human condition, utilizing the Smallbones’ own personal experiences of hardship and redemption. From the soaring, up-tempo jubilation of “joy.” to the profound and tender message of self-love in “God Only Knows,” it is apparent that for KING & COUNTRY have mastered creating diverse worlds within their music. Their incredible live performance is a mirror of this fact, as is evident by multiple sold-out shows on their current tour, including major markets like Seattle, Denver, and Nashville.
