INO rockers Decyfer Down continue to dominate the charts as their current single “Desperate” recently topped the Christian Rock Radio chart at No. 1. This is the band’s seventh consecutive No. 1 single on Christian Rock Radio following the success of their previous hits “Crash” and “Fading,” from their sophomore album Crash (May ’09), along with “Break Free,” “Life Again,” “Fight Like This” and “No Longer,” from their debut release, End of Grey.

“We’re very excited about the response for the new record Crash and to have our 3rd consecutive No. 1 single from this album has been very energizing to see,” says drummer Josh Oliver. “We are super pumped about the fall tour with Skillet and Hawk Nelson and look forward to connecting with many ‘Decyferites’ and meeting new people along the way.  We desire to bring the hope and truth that God has given us into people’s lives through the music and conversations this fall.  Be sure to come out to the tour and say hello and be prepared to receive what God has for you.  Thanks everyone for your support!”

Decyfer Down will be sharing the stage with Hawk Nelson as they accompany headliner SKILLET on their “Awake & Alive” tour and they travel across the U.S. hitting major markets such as New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Phoenix, Seattle, Dallas and Chicago. The tour kicks off September 24th and carries on through December 6th. For more information on Decyfer Down and the tour please go to www.decyferdown.com

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
