The North Carolina natives are back with their sixth album, after a wait of nearly two years. The release includes a bonus live track recorded at Winterjam 2012, a song from their previous album 'Listen To The Sound'. 'We Won't Be Shaken' is a fusion of anthem-like songs interspersed with some more reflective, personal tracks. The declarative lyrics and melody of "Revolution" reinforce the band's rock genre status and create the sound of a true revolution within the album. Alongside this are the powerful tracks "Get Up" and "Bonfire", with rhythms to get crowds jumping and story telling lyrics. "All I'm Holding" and the title track are two of the more prayerful, intimate tracks, telling of God's promises, and "All The Glory" speaks of the band's heart. Some of the songs here are less like thundering rock anthems and more like pop fillers, however, the strong drum beats, memorable lyrics and powerful vocals demonstrate Building 429 has lost none of their winning ways with memorable hooks for which American radio stations love them.
