WELCOME TO THE CONGREGATION
Get ready for a service the likes of which you’ve never attended before, where the message is served up fresh and loud by Clayton Bellamy and the Congregation through a high-octane blend of gospel, R&B and riff-driven hard rock.
Not a churchgoer? No worries. The church of rock and roll is open to all. The only requirement is a willingness to worship at the altar of love. “And love is what this is all about,” Bellamy says, “The message in these songs is all about that. Even if things are bad, when you cover them in love they get better.”
On Welcome to the Congregation (Anthem), the gospel according to Bellamy and company isn’t ‘sex, drugs and rock and roll’. “It’s more peace, love, understanding… and rock and roll’,” the Alberta-based singer/songwriter says, laughing. “Everything everybody needs comes out of love, even if people think they don’t need or deserve it.”
