Nashville, Tenn. Aug. 10, 2010... Raising Up the Dead, the newest and highly anticipated release from Caedmon’s Call, will release directly to fans on on Sept. 14.

“This is our most collaborative project ever”, says member Derek Webb. “Everyone was involved in the writing process because we wanted to make a record that reflected the idea of community very strongly. It’s a big theme on this project.”

Each of the 12 songs found on Raising Up the Dead were written by the Texas-based band. The album was additionally produced by Webb. Todd Bragg (drums) enters the songwriting fray on “I Need a Builder,” while Jeff Miller (bass) joins in on the acoustic driven “Sometimes a Beggar” and “Streets of Gold.” Webb continues to add to his impressive writing career with “Family” and the title track while Cliff Young joins the writing mix with “God’s Hometown.“ Webb's wife, acclaimed singer/songwriter Sandra McCracken also lends her talents to several songs, keeping it all in the family. Danielle Young single handedly contributed lyrics to six of the 12 songs and is highlighted on lead vocals in half of the tunes, including the powerful “Free.”

"Writing for this record has been a life changing experience,” shares Danielle Young. “I discovered I love to write. I discovered that the cathartic nature of revealing what is in my heart is worth the challenge it poses. I am thankful for this experience and for Derek and Sandra who held my hand and helped me through this process." received over 11,000 downloads of a free advanced preview of the record, including “Sometimes A Beggar” and “She,” in the first week alone. Twitter was also lighting up with fans both promoting and sharing the link to the free music.

The album is currently available for pre-order on where fans can choose from pre-order tiers with immediate downloads or even a limited number of signed physical copies of the record.

“The band’s focus here was to make the best record possible, wanting to primarily impress the fans who have supported them for these almost two decades,” further explains Webb. “This is a band reborn, with a new creative energy and sense of camaraderie that I haven’t seen since the days of 40 acres, but without the trappings of the arrogance and short-sightedness of youth. It’s a rare and special thing for a band to come back around to such a moment after making music together for so long, and Raising Up the Dead is the documentation of this moment.”

With career sales exceeding 1 million albums and going on 16 years in the industry, Texas-based band Caedmon’s Call has made the leap from independent act to Christian music mainstay. Caedmon’s Call has launched sixteen national releases. Among its accolades is; an Album of the Year Dove Award, a Billboard Music Video Award nomination and seven No. 1 radio singles.
