Rock Band DecembeRadio “Joins the Tribe” for Spring Tour with the Newsboys Band's Album Garners Year-End Top Picks; New Ballad Hits the Airwaves

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) – GRAMMY® Award nominees DecembeRadio are excited to join the Newsboys for the 35-city Join the Tribe tour which launches this Friday, February 20th, in Fredrick, MD. The tour, which will run through mid-April and also features bands VOTA and Bread of Stone, will support Global Tribe (www.globaltribe.com), an organization fighting physical and spiritual poverty.

“The Join the Tribe tour is going to be a blast!,” stated Josh Reedy, lead singer and bass player for DecembeRadio. “It's really cool for us to be a part of a tour with a band that we grew up watching. I know it will be a night of great music, energy and ministry.”

DecembeRadio will be performing songs from their current release, Satisfied, which was named among the “Best of the Best in 2008” by the staff and senior music editors from the Gospel Music Channel website (www.gospelmusicchannel.com).

“It's rare that a Christian rock record really rocks to the degree of deafening proportions, but DecembeRadio gets props for not only reaching that amplification level, but doing so with sophistication and satisfaction,” stated the editorial staff online. “[DecembeRadio] returns with even more muscle than the first round, all the while holding firm to their faith. Anyone who's seen the group in concert can also attest to their intensity, making DecembeRadio's future all the more alluring.”

The Gospel Music Channel's editorial team named the song “Gasoline” as their iTunes pick for the Satisfied release. This song is also available digitally as a ringtone.

Satisfied was also selected in the “Top 10 Critics Picks” for 2008 according to CCM Magazine's editors, two of which named DecembeRadio in their annual top choices for the best faith-based albums of the year.

Christianity Today (www.christianitytoday.com) released their Best of Christian Albums of 2008 list as well, also honoring DecembeRadio's Satisfied, which landed at #10. On street week in August, the release debuted at #3 on the Christian sales chart and at #116 on the BILLBOARD Top 200 chart.

The band's new single, “Look for Me,” an epic ballad with early buzz and early adds at various stations, hit the airwaves at AC radio last Friday.

“DecembeRadio's new ‘Look for Me' single caught me off guard,” stated Bart Wagner, PD for WAYR in Brunswick, GA. “I listened to it Friday afternoon and it stuck with me all weekend. The first lyric on the second verse just keeps running through my head – ‘There's a grace dying to erase all that you have said and done.' What an amazing way to capture God's forgiveness that is so available!”
