Thank you to our Partners Contributors and our label City Of Peace Media 

Over the past 3 months we have been in transition from CMG to Sony Provident. During this time, "Into the Great Unknown" was down for 3 months. We appreciate all our friends, partners and contributors who were apart of Into the Great Unknown. Though we are very focused on the new album. We still appreciate all that you have done in the past that made Into the Great Unknown possible. It's back online in HD audio. We also want to thank our label City of Peace Media. Without them this album would not be possible.

Our Distribution Transition 

City of Peace media, our label has moved from CMG distribution and told us we will be transitioning to Sony Provident for distribution. Unfortunately "Into the Great Unknown" has been down for several months because of the transition and we are hoping this is resolved soon. We appreciate our friends and partners who were a part of "Into the Great Unknown" and as soon as we get an update we will be letting you know. We hope this is back online very soon.

Right now you can still buy the physical copy of "Into the Great Unknown" in select book stores and directly from our label City of Peace Media. We are hoping all digital formats will be online soon.

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the River Update 

Our new album is taking much longer than expected. Sometimes these albums take much longer than we would like. We will definitely be done this year however it's too early for a release date. You can hear a sample of what we are working on our facebook. We still might release a single this year we will just have to wait and see what our label says. Please stay tuned.

 

New Album - Welcome To the River 2019 

We are working on a new album that should be out in 2019 called "Welcome to the River". This album will be more indie sounding with ethereal pads, delayed guitars, lots of reverb and a little bit more prophetic. It's will be completely different sounding album than "Into the Great Unknown". It's in preproduction right now, and we have just started laying down some of the tracks. Everything is up in the air, but we are hoping to release a single before the album comes out so stay tuned. We won't be doing any traveling this year (with the exception of any mission trips) as we all are pretty busy with our families, and we are working on the album in our spare time.


 

Our Mission This Year - Missions 

After several major tours have been cancelled, we have had lots of disappointments (as well as many others that I won't get into).  We have had many trials as a band, and just trying to figure what God wants us to do, when things don't work out like we expect.  That being said we have also had many victories. We are counting our blessings for sure.  There's no question we have had countless opportunities that any musician or band would die for. And we are incredibly thankful to City of Peace Media, our label, who have opened many doors. They have been great! But I guess like most things you always want more. 

That being said, late 2015 we decided we would do limited events that had Missions attached. This was actually part of our mission statement  (no pun intended) from the very beginning.  I have always felt that even though we were a worship band that the gospel could still be a center piece of what we do. Over much thought and prayer, I think this generation needs worship leaders that are not just chasing the lights, and the big stage and tours but something more valuable and lasting. I am totally not against those things and who knows they may still come, but the foundation needs to be more. This generation needs to see artists that actually do something besides create records and tour. Like I said nothing wrong with those things, however they should never be a primary focus. 

I believe this is just as important as the mission trips we go on, and that is to encourage other Artists to promote the gospel, and do mission work. Promoting the Lord and the Gospel and focusing on lasting things that will make a difference.  This generation needs to be encouraged to be a minister, not just a artist. That's our heart and that's our goal for this year. 

God has been faithful to the vision we have cast. In April, we recently went to the Grand Bahama Island for a mission trip that went very well with myself and Seadric. Then in a few days I will be going to Africa and then Lord willing we plan on going to Israel and another country with in a year. So our focus this year will be entirely missions oriented. 

Please keep us in prayer for our ministry this year.

Break the Bread (Communion Song) the meaning 

Break the Bread has a really deep picture beyond the obvious communion references. The song is a prophetic picture of Passover, which is where communion comes from.

"I remember your broken body" This is an obvious reference to the Lord when he said when you do this, do this in remembrance of me. This not only is a reference to remembering what Jesus did on the cross, and that his body was broken, but in Passover, this is symbolic because we break the bread in Passover. The bread is unleavened bread which symbolizes without sin. Even the song reference Break the Bread makes a reference that Jesus died without sin or blemish the bread is unleavened in Passover. So when we break the bread we remember that Jesus broke his body for us without sin.

"Your blood and tears so overcoming" The wine is an obvious reference that Jesus shed his blood for our sins. But in Passover also you dip the Karpas in saltwater symbolizing the tears that Jews had during their Egyptian slavery. I believe it also is a prophetic picture of the tears Jesus shed for us and for what he suffered. When I dip the Karpas in saltwater I think of the tears Jesus made for us and what he suffered through.

" I remember you took bitterness"  In Passover we dip the Karpas into the bitter herbs. I believe this is a prophetic picture of when Yeshua (Jesus) drank the wine mixed with gall. God willingly took our bitterness on the cross. This is what I remember when I dip the Karpas into the bitter herbs.

"You bore my pain You bore my sickness" This reference is an obvious reference to Isaiah 53:5 "The punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by our wounds we are healed"

"Break the Bread Drink the wine come sup with me " a reference to Rev 3:20 "Behold I stand at the door and knock if any man hears my voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him and sup with him and he with me." I believe this is a prophetic picture of the Passover door and a reference to a intimate time when we take communion and the Lord sups with us. There is also a tradition in Passover of the child knocking on the door. I believe this also maybe a prophetic picture when Jesus is knocking on the door in Revelation..

"I remember your affliction your stripes and marks and all your piercings" is a reference to The Matzah bread in Passover the way it's baked is striped and is pierced. So when we take matzah bread we remember the piercing and stripes" Also another reference to Isaiah 53:5. 

" I remember the order of your redemption unfailing love" The word Seder means order. Not only does Passover celebrate the redemption of Jesus but the last cup symbolized the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Revelation 19:7–10. 

Also during in one of the Choruses bearly in the background you can hear " I long for the marriage of the lamb"

The bridge is interesting because I didn't write the bridge but I believe God knew what he was doing and tied it all in. The bridge says
"You are good Oh Lord, You are good to me, You're the Life in every Breath I Breathe." I believe this is a reference in Passover to the
Charoset we eat which God wants us to remember his Goodness. Charoset symbolizes his goodness to us the sweetness of God!


 

 

Recently Misquoted 

I found an interview recently I did last year where I was misquoted. Not a big deal, but I wanted to clarify a few things. Although we support and have relationship with worship leaders on other labels locally, we have no plans to go outside of City of Peace Media with another label, or other groups, or participate in tours, or conferences outside what City of Peace Media lines up. This was a complete misquote. Not the end of the world but I did want to clarify.

I do know a few guys here that locally that are on other labels. I absolutely love and support them 100%.  We love what's going on at Bethel and Jesus Culture in the area of worship. And we support these guys 100%. Such incredible stuff. 

However we have no plans whatsoever to go outside of City of Peace media in regards to records, tours, conferences or anything else, however it doesn't take away from us supporting other worship leaders that are doing other things.

Thanks, David
 

Worship band House of Peace is set to release their third radio single, Break the Bread (Communion Song) 

Worship band House of Peace is set to release their third single, Break the Bread (Communion Song), from their debut full-length project; Into the Great Unknown. The single will be hitting airwaves Jan 30, 2016.   

Break the Bread (Communion Song), produced by Grammy and Dove award winning producer Ed Cash, is an ethereal worship song within a modern worship context. Co-writer and internationally acclaimed music producer Scott Cash commenting on House of Peace singer/songwriter, Davd Liscum, says, "David writes songs that are commercial, palatable, and accessible but still really hit home." 

Break the Bread is from Into the Great Unknown, the first full studio album by House of Peace from City of Peace Media and Capitol Christian Distribution. The 11-song project celebrates the band's credo of diversity through unity by incorporating a broad range of musical styles from CCM to ethereal worship. 

"This is one of my favorite worship songs on our album and still really connects me with me every time we lead worship with it or I listen to it. There is a deeper picture about communion going on... remembering what the Lord did for us on the cross..." says, David Liscum, worship leader and songwriter from House of Peace. "It's really important when we take communion to remember the price, the sacrifice, the cost, and the freedom we have. I really tried to capture that in this song in a format that listeners would connect with but most of all honor the Lord." 

In its June 2015 issue, CCM Magazine said, "House of Peace's new album mixes modern lyrics with ancient spiritual truths to create a diverse, catchy soundtrack. With a penchant for singing profound truths in new ways, this new outfit is one worshippers of all ages and tastes will appreciate."  

"In a musical landscape littered with carbon copy worship songs, House of Peace delivers an outstanding album, bringing together an amazing depth of both lyrics and sound," declares Shaun Tabatt of The Shaun Tabatt Show. 

The new single follows on the heels of the group's well-received debut single, "Passover Lamb," which hit Billboard charts in 2015. Break the Bread impacts Christian, Christian AC, Christian CHR, Worship, Inspirational, and Christian HOT AC radio formats. House of Peace's Into the Great Unknown, is currently available digitally and physically from retailers from City of Peace Media and Capitol Christian Distribution.

The band was initially featured on the City of Peace Media compilation project, IStand With Israel, and Liscum later teamed with City of Peace Media 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.

David and some band members will be playing from the east coast all the way to the west coast in Florida, Texas, Georgia, California, Tennessee, New York, and Pennsylvania. If you are interested in having David come for a time of worship and ministry please contact houseofpeaceworshipband@gmail.com.

Please Pray for Gary Noland one of our amazing producers and Unstaged! 

Please Pray for Gary Noland, one our amazing producers. Gary Noland Mixed "New Life" which was inspired, and used in The Identical Movie. We wanted to say thank you Gary! We ended with such an amazing song between a good friend who did a spectacular job tracking the song in Nashville, and Gary mixing it, we could not have asked for much more. "New Life" obviously is on our latest album. Please preview and download it, you will love it!

It's a killer song and we love it so much. If you haven't heard it yet, get it. It's an epic track! We worked very hard on it, and so did many others! It's probably my favorite track on the entire album. It's not a worship song, very different from what we normally do, but we are so thankful we did it!

Gary has an amazing studio as seen in the pictures below. Both Gary and his wife have great hearts, and we just ask you to keep them in your prayers. as Gary has been operating under Unstaged since 2003. Recently, American Express has filed a lawsuit against Gary claiming they have rights to the name. I have known Gary for a very long time, and as far as I know he has had that name before American Express was using it. Gary has very limited funds, and this is a horrible tragedy against Gary, and his family. In addition to Gary being a Christian singer, songwriter, worship leader, Gary helps many Christian artists who love the Lord, and this would be a huge setback for Gary. Gary does tremendous works of service for the Church, and for many Christian artsts.

Please keep Gary Noland and his family in your prayers and Unstaged

​WORSHIP BAND HOUSE OF PEACE IMPACTS BRICK & MORTAR RETAIL 


WORSHIP BAND HOUSE OF PEACE IMPACTS BRICK & MORTAR RETAIL TODAY WITH DEBUT CD, INTO THE GREAT UNKNOWN 

"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!
