NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 28, 2019) — We Are Messengers will release its new EP, Honest, on Friday, March 29 via Curb | Word Entertainment. Hailed as "both carefully genuine and creatively brilliant" by New Release Today, the six-song set — produced by Tedd T. (Francesca Battistelli, Stars Go Dim) and Benjamin Backus (for KING & COUNTRY, Blanca) — marks the Dove Award-nominated act’s first new project since its self-titled debut album.

Honest’s first single, “Maybe It’s Ok” — the band's fastest-rising single — immediately resonated with people from all walks of life with its message of raw transparency and no-holds-barred empathy.

“This is our record that says, ‘We get it. I know how you feel. There’s no quick solution to any of this, but I’m going to stay with you and I’m going to walk with you,’” shares We Are Messengers frontman Darren Mulligan. “Some heartaches last a lifetime. Some scars don’t go away. We’re singing songs about being busted, broken and messy and our God meets us in that humanity. We’re singing songs about people like me.”

Now sitting at No. 3 and rising on the Billboard and Mediabase charts, No. 8 on Billboard's Hot Chart, and with 7.5 million on-demand streams, “Maybe It’s Ok” has grown beyond the bounds of music and become a movement of radical self-acceptance. On maybeitsok.com, fans can anonymously share their personal stories and struggles in a safe space and see they’re not alone. Over 1,000 entries have been submitted to date, with fans revealing their struggles with issues ranging from grief and loss, to mental illness and addiction, to sexual abuse and human trafficking.

Honest is the most truthful, raw and personal record we have made,” adds Darren. “We’ve pushed ourselves to be vulnerable, to share our heartache, loneliness and joy so that everyone who listens can have permission to share theirs, too.”

Honest track listing:

1. Honest
2. Abide
3. Maybe It’s Ok
4. The Devil Is A Liar
5. Wolves
6. Gold And Glory
