Newsboys, who will return to the big screen for April’s highly-anticipated Pure Flix release, “God’s Not Dead 2,” will perform the film’s theme song and the band's latest single, “Guilty,” during the tour. In addition, the iconic group will showcase hits from their unparalleled career and forthcoming new studio recording.
“Duncan, Jody, Jeff and I are really at home on the stage, and we can’t wait to hit the road again,” said Newsboys frontman Michael Tait. “Over the past year this tour has given us amazing opportunities to connect with our fans around the country. We’re thrilled to get back out there and share new music along with the message of 'God's Not Dead 2.'”
Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, Newsboys’ live performances continue to sell out venues across the country. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the band has sold more than 8 million units, amassing eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. “God’s Not Dead,” Newsboys’ chart-topping, Platinum®-certified single, inspired Pure Flix's 2014 hit film of the same name.
Since their debut in 1986, Audio Adrenaline has been one of Christian music’s best-loved bands. They have garnered two GRAMMY® Awards for Best Rock Gospel Album (Worldwide, Until My Heart Caves In); five GMA Dove Awards; a Gold®-certified recording (Bloom); and 14 #1 Christian radio singles, including signature songs “Big House,” “Get Down” and “Hands And Feet.” Sound of the Saints, the band’s critically-acclaimed FairTrade Services release, debuted at #1 earlier this year on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart.

OBB—brothers Zach (lead vocals/keys/guitar), Jacob (lead guitar) and Nich Oswald (drums)—rocketed into the spotlight in 2013 with a GMA Dove Award nomination and a slot on the juggernaut Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, a role they reprised this fall.
