2010 has certainly been a momentous year for Newsboys. From their July CD release of Born Again to the major radio airplay with both the No. 1 hit “Born Again” and current radio single “Way Beyond Myself,” to the consistent touring at venues and festivals, the band just hasn’t stopped. Top that off with kicking off a remix contest, filming music videos and releasing their first-ever Christmas project, Christmas! A Newsboys Holiday, the year is not yet over for Newsboys.

Hitting the road the weekend after Thanksgiving, Newsboys will join Newsong to ring in the Christmas cheer across the U.S. on the “Very Merry Christmas Tour 2010.” The 20-city nationwide tour will kick off in North Carolina and finish in Florida December 19th. Tour dates are listed below, yet be sure to visit Newsboys.com for the most updated information.

As they prepare for the upcoming Christmas tour, the band just filmed a music video for their song “Miracles” from the Born Again project. “Miracles” was filmed right outside of Nashville and will also include live concert footage. The video will be available as a free download with the 2011 release of Born Again: Miracles Edition, coming March 29th.
The band’s current single, “Way Beyond Myself,” climbing this week to No. 5 on the CHR charts, is also the song of choice for the Newsboys Remix Competition. As announced in October, the contest is to find the best remix of the single and the winning version will also appear on the Born Again: Miracles Edition. The winner will be chosen by a combination of fan votes and by Newsboys themselves. The competition is currently open and is available to fans of all ages and no production experience required. All submissions must be made by December 6th. A specific list of details is available on the official website, Newsboys.com/remix.

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.

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.

“Way Beyond Myself,” the band’s current radio single, made history this year by garnering the most adds at Christian CHR radio in a single reporting period. The song received an astounding 17 adds in its first week. Along with the winning remix of “Way Beyond Myself,” the forthcoming expanded edition of Born Again will also feature three other song remixes of “Jesus Freak,” “Mighty To Save” and “Born Again.”

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
