GRAMMY®-nominated pop/rock act Building 429 and alt-rock fan favorite Family Force 5 are uniting for what’s sure to be an explosive spring tour. “We Won’t Be Shaken: The Tour,” named after Building 429’s lead single and multi-week No. 1 hit from their latest album, will also feature pop/rock trio Hawk Nelson and newcomers Satellites & Sirens and Lybecker. Kicking off Feb. 21 in Beaver Falls, Penn., “We Won’t Be Shaken: The Tour” will visit more than 35 markets this spring, bringing high-energy performances and a message of hope to every city.
Building 429 will be performing songs from their critically-acclaimed sixth studio effort, We Won’t Be Shaken (Essential Records). The release marks the band’s first No. 1 album and No. 1 debut atop Soundscan’s Christian Albums chart. The title track became an instant smash, as listeners made it their personal anthem in 2013. The band will be sharing the album’s message with audiences each night, encouraging them to stand firm in their convictions and to not allow fear to overshadow the big dreams God places in their hearts. We Won’t Be Shaken was nominated for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” at the 56th annual GRAMMY Awards.
Family Force 5 will treat audiences to a high-octane performance as a result of the band’s wildly creative concert experience. Fans will also be able to hear new frontman Jacob Olds, who transitioned from drums to lead vocals last fall following the departure of his brother, Soul Glow Activatur (Solomon Olds). The band’s set will feature selections from last summer’s 12-track electronic album Reanimated, as well as popular fist-pumping tracks from their colorful discography. The group will also be previewing new music from their highly-anticipated studio release slated to drop later this year.
As a one-of-a-kind treat for fans, select tour dates will take part in offering the “Revolution VIP Experience,” which is a limited, intimate meet and greet with Building 429. The “Revolution VIP Experience” is an add-on offer for ticket-buyers at the point of purchase and will provide a tour laminate that will guarantee access to an exclusive meet and greet with Building 429 at any 2014 tour date. Concert goers will also have the option to participate in a special “Revolution After Party” following each show.
