eOne Christian Music, a division of eOne Entertainment, announces the most recent addition to their growing artist roster, officially signing rock band Rush Of Fools. The band is in the writing process for their next album release, planned to street next summer. This new project follows the band’s first two acclaimed CDs, 2008’s Wonder Of The World and 2007’s Rush Of Fools.
“I’ve been working with Rush Of Fools from the start of their career, and we’ve become family over the years, sharing so much together,” comments Bob Morrison, VP of Christian Music at eOne. “I feel very blessed that we can continue our journey together. My passion for the band and the strengths of eOne will provide them a strong home for their future recordings and career growth. There are exciting things to come!”
In just a few short years, this Birmingham, Alabama-based band made a name for themselves thanks to the instant success of their self-titled debut’s enormous radio success. Their first hit “Undo” went No. 1 for an astounding seven weeks, was named Radio & Records Song of the Year award in 2007 and was ASCAP’s Song of the Year (2008). Their follow-up single “Peace Be Still” hit No. 1 for three weeks. In 2008, Rush of Fools was recognized by the Gospel Music Association, receiving four Dove Award Nominations that year – New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year (for “Undo”), while their self-titled debut was nominated for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year.
“It’s a humbling opportunity for us as a band to be able to partner with such an incredible company as eOne,” exclaims Kevin Huguley, Rush Of Fools. “Their laundry list of success with film, television, and musical artists from all genres speaks for itself, so we see greater things that are to come because of this new and exciting relationship. Let’s make a record!”
Touring over 120 dates a year, Rush Of Fools recently concluded their first European set of dates, which included a stop in Norway opening for Casting Crowns. The band is currently writing and planning recording for their first release with eOne.
