Our good friends, Tenth Avenue North, have been busy this year. They started with the Winter Jam 2010 in January traveling to more than forty cities with bands like – Third Day, Newsboys, Fireflight, and some others. I luckily got to see them in late January when the Winter Jam Tour stopped in Reading, PA and, of course, they performed awesome. After the Winter Jam 2010, they started the Until The Whole World Hears Tour with Casting Crowns and Caleb – which they are still currently on, but will be ending this Saturday, May 1st. They took a short break during the tour to attend (they were up for two nominees) and play at the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards. Tenth Avenue North won for Song of the Year for “By Your Side”, which they performed a mini version of that night as well. Mike Donehey, leader vocals and guitar, also took home an additional award for his work on the multi-artist worship project, Glory Revealed II, which was recognized in the Special Event Album category.
Busy, right? I wasn’t joking, and I’m not even done yet!
Tenth Avenue North brand new album, The Light Meets The Dark, is available on May 11. The guys are very excited for the release, and can’t wait for everyone to get to listen to it. Some songs from the new album have been released as singles the last couple of weeks until the album comes out. The three songs are “Healing Begins,” “Strong Enough To Save,” and “You Are More.” The other song coming out as a single before the full album is, “Truth Is Who You Are” on May 4. The four songs are actually the first four songs on the album, which is made up of 11 tracks. You can preview the tracklist and sample the other songs at www.tenthavenuenorth.com.
I know what you’re thinking now, “Turtle. The title of this blog says something about a free CD release show, so when is it!?” And the answer to that question is coming right now, friend! Counting down the days until the CD release (and after it does), Tenth Avenue North is having six free CD release shows around the country – and you guessed it, one of them is in New Jersey. On May 11 (the day the album is released), they will be playing a free CD release show with Star99 at The Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, N.J., at 7 p.m. If you live in or around the New Jersey area, this is a great opportunity to see Tenth Avenue North in concert (if you never have for free), meet the guys afterwards (because they usually have a signing table), and pick up The Light Meets The Dark (the day it is released)!
