PHATFISH’s new compilation album Anthems For Worship revisits some of their biggest worship hits.

Christian contemporary music has undergone a “re-tuning” of sorts with the embrace of edgier, techno-tinged sounds in recent years by bands such as Delirious?, Casting Crowns, True Worshippers and many others, but the timelessness of the ‘90s praise and worship tunes remain.
Formed in 1994, UK Christian band PHATFISH has come a long way, playing and recording songs for congregations worldwide—which is why some of you might be familiar with the songs from their latest release, the 14-track Anthems For Worship. It is a new compilation album featuring their most well-known hits like “Holy, Holy,” “There Is A Day” and “Amazing God,” alongside remixes of “Awake Awake O Zion” and “Come Let Us Worship.”
With fresh new musical arrangements weaved into the angelic voice of Lou Fellingham, Anthems For Worship will not fail to give you a spiritual pick-me-up, whether in the comfort of your prayer closet or on the go, and the music succeeds in being inspirational yet not overpowering.
PHATFISH has led worship worldwide at major UK festivals including Newday, Soul Survivor and Spring Harvest, performing alongside established names like Matt Redman, Delirious? and many more.
The band sums up the passion from where their music comes on their website, “Don’t ever stop singing because we’re designed to do it—heartfelt praise from the lips of His people in response to the Father’s great revelation in His Son. What a joy this is! And for now we only see dimly. But one day face to face.”
