Four-time GRAMMY®-nominated band Newsboys boasts an impressive track record with 16 albums, five gold certifications, 25 No. 1 radio hits and close to 8 million units sold over their multi-decade career.
Now, the Newsboys plan to “take the music further” than ever before with their new album, Restart, set to hit stores on September 10.
Restart will be the third studio album with Michael Tait at the helm and combines the pop, worship and rock that fans embraced from the first two albums, Born Again and God’s Not Dead. In the nearly four years since Tait joined the band, over 650,000 records have been sold, while five singles have attained No. 1 status on the radio charts.
The album’s first single “Live With Abandon” reached No. 20 on the National Christian Audience chart this week. The single has also broken into the Top 10 at Christian Hot AC at No. 6.
“At the start of this record two years ago, we knew we’d be taking great risks, but people will be excited about this album because we’ve pushed the music and taken it further than we’ve ever taken it before,” says Michael Tait. “I have not felt this way about anything I’ve been involved in musically since Jesus Freak.”
Fans of the Newsboys can look forward to their dynamic live performance as the band gears up for another extensive touring schedule this fall. For the most updated tour schedule and information, visit http://www.Newsboys.com.
