ARTIST OF THE DAY
Part of the Holy Trinity of 90s Christian music (DC Talk, Audio Adrenaline, and The Newsboys) - The Newsboys have been touring the globe for nearly 25 years! The band originated in Australia, but the current line-up is a bit more diverse.
Facts: The Newsboys were formed in 1985 as "The News" in Queensland, Austrailia. There are no original members performing in the band's current line-up.
The Newsboys just released a brand new album (their 17th!) called Restart and it continues to rearrange your preconceived ideas of what worship music can be. "This generation has lost its heroes and people to look up to. As a band we want to reengage our culture and have a real positive effect," said drummer Duncan Phillips to the Christian Post. "I think it’s time that we jumped in not to be apart of it, knowing who we are and having courage to do the great commission."
Phillips unabashedly says Restart is "the best Newsboys record we’ve ever penned and recorded," and his bandmates agree.
