The Arctic celebrates CD launch with worship concert in Chilliwack

A CD release concert for The Arctic Project is set for this Friday at The Vineyard

Chilliwack band, The Arctic, will be releasing its EP Reverberate this weekend, and are celebrating with a concert worship event the day before the release.

The Arctic, with special guests Coalmont, perform this Friday at The Vineyard in Chilliwack.

The Arctic is a worship project from a collective of musicians that pursue after God through music and soundscape. The main artist in the group is Luke Vandevert, who works collectively with various other musicians including Christiaan Van Wyk (Chilliwack), Nate Daase (Chilliwack), Aaron Rathjen (Langley), plus others.

Reverberate is a six-song EP. The Arctic’s first single, Diversity, was released earlier and is available on iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby.

Most of the songs are created with the intent of focusing on God and growing in understanding of him, while at the same time allow for expressions of praise, lament, thanksgiving, and sometimes frustration to the listener.

The Arctic’s songs feature reflection on the body of Christ as heard in Diversity, desperation of seeking alertness in Searchlights, and vulnerability in worship like Reverberate. Some songs are written stories or thoughts that reflect on situations, like Lost Lover which focuses on loneliness.

This collective group travels around meeting with churches of all denominations in putting on worship events. The Arctic has teamed up with many talented musicians and songwriters over the past years to put on these events, including artists like Ryan McAllister, Coalmont, Marika, Alex Toney, Achor, Daniel Kikkert, and many more.

The Arctic with Coalmont (Nate and Stef Esau) CD release concert is set for Friday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. at The Vineyard (45892 Wellington Ave.).

Tickets $10 and available at Long &McQuade and Eventbrite.
