Encouraging fans to “Live Life Loud,” Hawk Nelson is ready to introduce their headline tour that begins April 16, 2010 in Duluth, MN. The World Vision sponsored tour will also include fan favorites Group 1 Crew and A Road Less Traveled as well as feature Hoops for Hope. For the complete tour schedule, visit http://www.hawknelson.com.
“Life Life Loud” the tour begins on the heels of their recent release “Live Life Loud,” which embodied everything fans know of Hawk Nelson. Their fourth-studio project loudly resounded with media reviewers as they touted the album as Hawk Nelson’s “most mature,” “diverse collection,” and “best overall album.” This year, the guys have spent time in the studio recording special acoustic tracks and this last week they traveled to to Australia to perform for their international fans. In addition to their upcoming headline tour, Hawk Nelson is celebrating two GMA Dove Nominations this year for “Recorded Music Packaging” and “Short Form Video.”
As part of their campaign to get everyone living life loud, Hawk Nelson is asking their Twitter followers to use the hashtag #livelifeloud whenever they Tweet about something that showcases the true meaning of what it means to “Live Life Loud.” On the tour homepage, fans can see others tweeting about how they “Live Life Loud.”
Taking their recent release’s subject matter to heart, Hawk Nelson is striving to “Live Life Loud.” Recently with the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti, Jason Dunn joined the 100+ artist choir for Michael W. Smith’s “Come Together Now” recording. This song was recorded live at Belmont University’s Ocean Way Studios and is now featured on the “Healing 4 Haiti” CD. All net proceeds from the sale of this album will support relief efforts in Haiti including clean water, shelter, medical care and other critical aid from Samaritan’s Purse. It will also support the work of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Rapid Response Team, who had chaplains on the ground within 24 hours of the earthquake providing emotional and spiritual comfort to survivors. In addition to Dunn’s participation in this recording, he also traveled in February to Haiti with Samaritan’s Purse to see for himself the tragedy.
“My trip to Haiti was life-changing,” shares Dunn. “On my flight there, I asked God to break my heart for these people. He listened, like He always does!”

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.Full Feature More from Guardian
