The momentum is not stopping for Newsboys! The band’s brand new radio single, “Way Beyond Myself,” has garnered the most adds this year at Christian CHR radio in a single reporting period. With an astounding 17 adds in its first week, “Way Beyond Myself” debuts on the charts at No. 27. The single is the second to release from Newsboys’ current project, Born Again, and follows its No. 1 single, “Born Again.”

And what a year it has been for Newsboys! With the July release of Born Again and a fresh sound with stellar new lead vocals from Michael Tait, with 26 No. 1 hit singles and an extensive national and international touring schedule, the year is certainly not over for the band. Newsboys are set to release their first-ever Christmas project, Christmas! A Newsboys Holiday, available October 12th (Inpop Records). Newsboys will join Newsong the weekend after Thanksgiving to kick off the “Very Merry Christmas Tour 2010” to help promote the Christmas EP. The 20+city nationwide tour dates, kicking off in North Carolina and finishing in Georgia December 20th, can be found at Newsboys.com.

Since the July 13th CD release of Born Again, the self-titled single topped the charts for weeks, having a total of 7.47 million impressions to date. Its first week of release was the largest street week of their careers by selling an astounding 45,311 units and hitting #4 on Billboard’s overall chart. To date, Born Again has scanned 99,295, selling over 4,100 units this week alone.

ABOUT newsboys:
This GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning band has achieved what few artists have in their lifetime. They have sold almost 7 million units, garnered five Gold albums and 26 #1 hits, and are renown for their heart-pumping live shows. Last year, when longtime members Jody Davis (guitar), keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein and drummer Duncan Phillips welcomed the vocal strengths, writing talents and boundless energy of former dc Talk member Michael Tait to the band, it was clearly a good reason for newsboys to feel born again and share brand new songs with fans old and new. Born Again is Newsboys’ 15th studio project.

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