Matt Maher has released Your Love Defends Me to radio for June 23. "This song comes out of Psalm 91, and the idea of God being not a refuge, but our ONLY refuge. I think we can all relate to moments in our lives where who we were (or who we'll become) comes crashing to the forefront of who we are, and all of a sudden there's this fight happening inside for who gets control - the past or the future or the present moment now," shares Maher on the idea behind his new single. "When you combine that with a social media context that is always recording and documenting everything, it lives on in perpetuity either as an accusation or as a testimony. To put it simply - evil is in the business of accusation but God is in the business of raising up testimony - of who He is and what He's done. This song talks about how God is a defender. How the love of God is not just a defense, but it’s really the only defense we have that can stand against the inconsistency of ourselves. God is your defense and what He says about you is what matters. That’s what stays."

"I could not be more excited for this Live Original Tour,” says Sadie. “I am really digging deeper to make a heart connection between myself and the fans that come out to the show. The whole team is praying, dreaming, and creating together what the night will look like. With that being said it is going to be a very intentional show that I don't think people are going to want to miss. It is going to be a life changer. So, everyone come out and enjoy this experience with us!"
