Stay tuned for a big announcement with the Newsboys on Friday, Dec. 5 about their upcoming Spring 2015 tour.
In the meantime, gold-selling, GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys released their latest album, Hallelujah For The Cross, last month from First Company Management/Capitol Christian Distribution. Produced by Seth Mosley, the project features the legendary group’s take on nine classics and one new selection.
Hallelujah For The Cross includes the title-cut and debut single, which is currently impacting Christian radio around the country. The album also showcases a new arrangement of Newsboys’ “Where You Belong” with “Turn Your Eyes On Jesus,” as well as favorite hymns “Jesus Paid It All”; “Holy, Holy, Holy”; “It Is Well”; and “All Creatures Of Our God And King,” among others.
“Hymns are important to me,” says Newsboys frontman Michael Tait. “We picked through songs that went way, way, way back into my past and my dad’s Baptist church. I love modern worship but I just love that old stuff because they were written in such desperate and perilous times, and out of great pain comes great resolve, I think. When I sing them, they go deeper in ways to me than a lot of things I reach out for when I’m in that spiritual drought.”
With five Gold records, more than 8 million units sold, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, a recent American Music Award nomination and multiple Dove Awards, among numerous other accolades, Newsboys are one of the most influential bands in Christian music today. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the title-cut from the group’s best-selling 2012 recording, God’s Not Dead, topped the CHR chart for seven consecutive weeks and garnered an RIAA Gold certification. Newsboys’ recent history-making #1 hit, “We Believe,” topped the Billboard Christian Music chart for 15 consecutive weeks to become the band’s longest-running #1 single to date. The band just completed their 35-city fall “We Believe Tour,” with special guests Family Force 5 and 7eventh Time Down.
Stay tuned for a big announcement with Newsboys and their upcoming Spring 2015 tour.
