September 22, 2023

Sept 22, 2023 – Nashville, TN – Red Street Records’ Top 5 charting CCM group Consumed By Fire releases their brand new album, First Things First, available everywhere today (listen HERE). The album launches alongside a captivating acoustic video for their new single “Walk With Jesus” (watch HERE) and follows a string of impressive ‘firsts’ for the Ward brothers.
Band member Jordan Ward explains the heart behind the album by sharing, “This collection of songs was birthed out of the hardest season that our family has ever walked through. We hope as people take the journey of First Things First (the album), they will hear the conversations we were having with the Lord during some of those times. We hope they’ll be able to hear the scriptures we clung to and declared over our family even when the circumstances looked impossible to ever recover from (BUT GOD). Ultimately, we hope they hear the surrender that brought us to the end of ourselves and that it would somehow inspire their own surrender and personal walks with Jesus.”
Following a 2023 K-Love Fan Awards nomination for Breakout Single of the Year with “First Things First,” Consumed By Fire heads into the Fall with their first-ever Dove Awards nomination for Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year for “Goodbye Ole Me.” They are also headlining their First Things First Tour stretching across the country from September through October (see dates HERE). Fans across the nation can hear not only the familiar hits like No. 2 charted “First Things First,” but will get to experience the band’s brand new 13-track album with sure to be new favorites like “Time In The Water” and “A Little Bit Longer.”
Produced by Scotty Wilbanks alongside the Ward Brothers and penned by a collection of incredible writers, some of which include the project’s producers as well as Brian White, Brian Bunn, and Red Street’s own Don Koch and Iveth Luna, the First Things First album prepares to undoubtedly pull the heartstrings of listeners everywhere. With the impressive range of an undeniably talented trio, the project offers an array of songs that include inspirational ballads like “There Was A Grace” to the vivacious, funky sounds found in tracks like “Hands Up, Praise Up.”
Red Street CEO Jay DeMarcus shares, “These guys are wildly talented writers, musicians, and vocalists, and you can really hear their gifts shine in this new album! I can’t wait for the world to hear this project and fall in love with it like I have. So many great things are ahead for Consumed By Fire!!”

ABOUT CONSUMED BY FIRENo strangers to the road life, rising Contemporary Christian Music band, Consumed By Fire, are living out the name of their band in a brand-new way. Comprised of Caleb Ward (lead vocals), Jordan Ward (harmonies/percussion), Josh Ward (guitar/harmonies), the three brothers from Oklahoma are living out God’s calling for their lives, to share God’s grace far and wide through music. “If it wasn’t this form of ministry, if it wasn’t music, it would just be something else. Ministry is what we were born to do,” Caleb says. The band’s sound, heavily influenced by the music they grew up on, is thanks in part to their father’s eclectic taste. Filled with honest truths and the band’s honed musicality, “First Things First,” the band’s Top 5 charted radio single, is evidence of Consumed By Fire’s family bond and the unconditional love of both their earthly and heavenly fathers. As their accolades have continued to accumulate, the band has received media attention with spotlights from KLove and Air1 Radio, praising the band for their “deft lyricism and tight harmonies.” With a brand new First Things First album out as well as upcoming headlining tour dates, the band is ready for a new, exciting year of music.
