Christian Music’s Premiere Progressive-Worship Band, Rush of Fools, #1 Most Added At Radio & Records For Second Week With
“Lose It All”
Single Is From The Band’s Sophomore Project Wonder Of The World That Released September 16, 2008
Nashville, TN (November 5, 2008) ---- Midas Records’ premiere Christian Progressive-Worship band, Rush Of Fools, is once again heating up the airwaves on Christian radio with their latest single, “Lose It All.” The song enters its second week as the #1 Most Added at Radio & Records CHR chart and such stations as WONU/Chicago and KXWA/Denver are adding the tune. The network Program Director from WAY-FM, Tate Luck, adds, "This song had me by the first chorus. I believe that it will resonate with Amy, Jen, or whoever your lady is." The single was co-written by two members of the group; lead vocalist Wes Willis, guitarist and keyboards, Kevin Huguley, and one of their co-producers, Jason Ingram.
“‘Lose It All’ is an explosive single,” exclaims Brad Allen, Head of A&R, Midas Records. “The reaction to this song from both radio and fans has been tremendous, and when the band added the tune to their live show a few months ago, the crowd reaction was incredible also. These are the days you live for as a record guy, and I’m thrilled that Rush of Fools has done it again!”
Wonder of the World was one of the most eagerly anticipated projects of 2008, following Rush Of Fools' tremendous success with their self-titled debut in 2007. The group has received early reviews from ChristianMusicToday.com (Rush Of Fools sound considerably improved for their sophomore effort), CMCentral.com (Rush of Fools has succeeded in its transparency about the “Wonder of the World” and continually points listeners back to God, His word, His purposes, His timing and His ways), Soul-Audio.com (Throughout Wonder of the World, listeners are saturated with recurring themes of God’s goodness and faithfulness while at the same time experiencing the rewards of the Christian life), HollywoodJesus.com (The Jason Ingram-produced band returns with their sophomore album, Wonder of the World, in September, proving that they are no one-hit wonders), to name a few. These great reviews come as the group has sold close to 105,000 units in their young career, and Wonder of the World has already sold eleven-thousand units in just a few weeks after its release.
Rush Of Fools has been touring non-stop promoting Wonder of the World. In September, the band made their debut appearance at Night of Joy at Disney World and are currently on a 38-city national tour with Big Daddy Weave. The band will also be the featured artist on NewSong’s Christmas Celebration tour that launches December 2nd. The group will headline their own “Wonder of the World” tour in spring 2009 with Jimmy Needham, along with special guest Sarah Reeves and introducing Joy Lippard.
Rush of Fools' self-titled debut exploded at radio producing the Radio and Records 2007 Song of the Year with "Undo," while garnering ASCAP's Song of the Year Award for "Undo" (April 2008). The #1 single was also a featured song on CBA's top-selling WOW 2008 CD, while the record was the 2nd best- selling new artist release of 2007. With unprecedented radio success, multiple Dove Award nominations, exclusive partnerships, and national tours, Rush Of Fools has become one of Christian music's hottest new bands.
The Alabama-based group is comprised of Willis, Huguley, guitarist J.D. Frazier, bassist Jacob Chesnut and drummer Jamie Sharpe. For more information and tour updates on Rush Of Fools, please visit, www.rushoffools.com or www.myspace.com/rushoffools.
