Nashville, TN (April 16, 2014) —- After breaking into the Top 20 on Billboard’s Album Chart last week with the self-titled new album, Unspoken, the band now has launched their fastest charting single with “Start A Fire.” The song broke out as No. 1 New & Active at AC Indicator, No. 4 New & Active at AC Monitor and is ranked #28 on Billboard’s NCA chart. There were 38 total first week adds and the reaction from radio programmers has been very strong.
“I had heard the song only once and then woke up one morning with it still playing in my mind. What an awesome thing to ask God to do: Start a fire in me! We knew our listeners would embrace it and the response has been great.” – Kelly Corday, Assistant Program Director/Music Director, JOY-FM/St. Louis, Mo.
“It’s a freakin’ stone cold hit!,” – Travis Culver, Music Director/Afternoon Show Personality, KTSY/Boise, ID.
A music video for “Start A Fire” was shot at different locations around the country, while the band was on the KLOVE Listener Appreciation Tour last month. Filmed by video director, Max Hsu, shooting locations were done in Baton Rouge, LA, San Antonio, TX, Oklahoma City, OK, Denver, CO and Kansas City, KS. The video is now available online.
After a busy summer of debuting the new music from their current project, Unspoken, the group will join Centricity Music labelmates, Jason Gray, Lindsay McCaul and Carrollton for the Jason Gray Tour this fall. Additional information about the upcoming tour will be announced soon.
