Dove Award-winning band Building 429 and three-time Grammy nominee Leeland will join forces this fall to co-headline the 30-city “Sounds of Hope” Tour, which will also feature emerging pop-rock band Royal Tailor. In partnership with Food for the Hungry, the tour will kick off Sept. 22, and travel across the eastern and mid-American states before wrapping in November.
The “Sounds of Hope Tour” comes on the heels of Building 429’s fifth studio album release, Listen To The Sound (May 10), featuring the title track which became a recent No. 1 hit radio single. Leeland drops its brand new album, The Great Awakening, on Sept. 20, just as the tour hits the road and the album’s first two singles, “I Wonder” and “The Great Awakening,” continue to gain momentum at radio. Royal Tailor will tour in support of its brand new national debut, Black & White (May 31), featuring the current hit single “Hold Me Together.”
“After years of admiring from a distance the amazing music and ministry of Leeland we are so excited to be merging our own music and ministry with theirs,” says Building 429 lead singer Jason Roy. “We expect an amazing night of worship and entertainment that will ignite a passion in old fans and new. Top that off with a brand new band ready to take on the world, and you find three bands unified and touring with new purpose and a new fire. We’re all excited about raising the bar far beyond what the fans have come to expect on the ‘Sounds of Hope’ Tour.”
“I feel like this record is the beginning of a new season for us,” says Leeland Mooring. “I can’t wait to start this tour because I’m expecting to see awesome changes in people’s lives! We’re excited about partnering alongside Building 429 and Royal Tailor to create an atmosphere for the love of God.”
“The Great Awakening is more than a record to us, and we really feel that it’s a sound that is meant to be expressed live,” adds Leeland keyboardist Jack Mooring. “Real revival and awakening – that’s the message. I know Building 429 and Royal Tailor have the same hearts, so it’s going to make for a powerful night, and a unified sound.”
The “Sounds of Hope” Tour is partnering with long-time supporters, Christian humanitarian organization Food for the Hungry ( www.fh.org) to secure sponsorships for children and families in impoverished countries around the world. See below for more information on Food for the Hungry.
