A search for definition pervades Revelation, Third Day's 11th studio album. That search involved the Atlanta-based five-piece in stepping out of their physical comfort zone by recording in Los Angeles, and out of their creative comfort zone by bringing in producer Howard Benson, known for his work with artists such as Daughtry, P.O.D., Flyleaf, and Hoobastank.
The result is a muscular sound, strung taut with hooks and hat-tips to its Southern-rock influences, but also a real, palpable vulnerability in both song matter and performance.
"As we mature in our faith, we come to a point where we realize that everything is not black and white. The older you get, the more questions you have," Powell says. "The point is that it's okay that we don't have all the answers - but we know the One who does."
Just as this season of definition for Third Day involved bringing Benson into the fold, other artists stepped into to the creative mix as well, such as Chris Daughtry on the track "Slow Down," Flyleaf's Lacey Mosely on "Run To You" and "Born Again", and pedal steel guitar wizard Robert Randolph on "Otherside." But it's the core of Third Day that pushed them to this bigger, more polished and yet edgier musical stance, with lyrics designed to relate to a broad swath of the human and Christian experience. "So many Christians have a story of being lost, experiencing Christ and then their lives are all better. But for the ones who were brought up in Christian homes or who have been Christians for most of their lives, are they supposed to have it all together?" Anderson asks. "These songs are for people who are walking through something, right now. They add a tension that can only be found in our daily experience."
:Musically adventurous and lyrically vulnerable, the band gives voice to the mixed emotions of all believers---reconciling our everyday struggles with the hope of heaven!
Includes 'Run to You'; 'Born Again'; 'This Is Who I Am'; 'Caught Up in Yourself'; 'I Will Always Be True'; 'Take It All'; the first single, 'Call My Name'; the title track; and more.

Influenced by the Southern rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd and other artists such as U2 and Rich Mullins, Third Day was originally formed by vocalist Mac Powell and acoustic guitarist Mark Lee. The duo added bassist Tai Anderson and drummer David Carr from another local band, and recorded some demos. Third Day's live shows gradually built a loyal fan base, and just after lead guitarist Brad Avery joined, the band signed to Gray Dot Records. Their eponymous debut followed in 1996, with Conspiracy No. 5 appearing a year later. In 1999 Third Day returned with Time, and the next year Offerings, a collection of new and live material, came out, followed in 2003 by its companion, Offerings II: All I Have to Give.
That same year, the American Music Awards tapped them with a nomination in the Favorite Contemporary Inspirational Artist category. For their fifth studio album, 2004's Wire (which was followed shortly after by Live Wire), Third Day returned to their rock and roll roots, a trend they kept up for 2005's Top Ten hit Wherever You Are, which came out in CD/DVD format the next year. ~
