SiriusXM The Message Senior Director Al Skop says, “Every summer needs its JAM, and this is it! Let’s roll the windows down and crank Newsboys UP!”
Newsboys lead singer Michael Tait says, “When we came up with the song title ‘Magnetic’, it was a pretty powerful and sobering thought to think how God continuously chases after us. He is relentless. His love and mercy are a force that constantly pull and draw us to Him. We can never escape, thank, God.”
Covid-19 put us in a place of reflection and renewal. This is no different for the Newsboys. The band and Michael Tait had visions and passions for new music and took the reins on this project and had a hand in writing all the songs. The initial response from the fans online has been unprecedented and the band is fired up for everyone to hear the new music. While the direction might have shifted, the message rings true. We all need faith, hope and love. You will get it here and it is time to hear new music from one of the world’s leading positive rock bands.
As a perennial favorite at leading awards shows, radio and on tour, the Newsboys are looking forward to getting back out on the road. In July, they will headline the first LIFEST Festival in Middle Tennessee, along with a host of today’s top hitmakers. Having recently completed a season that saw the band reunite with former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel under the Newsboys United moniker; the quad of successful singer/songwriter/musicians is thrilled to be gearing up for this next chapter in its storied career.
