Multi-million-selling, GRAMMY and Dove Award-winning rock band Third Day is set to release Chronology, Volume One (1996-2000), March 27. The project, featuring 17 audio tracks as well as a DVD containing special never-before-seen band footage, releases on the heels of the band’s third career GRAMMY win, and as its current single, “Tunnel,” debuts at No. 30 on the R&R AC Monitored chart, No. 25 on the R&R AC Indicator chart and is New and Active on the R&R CHR chart.
Michael Grimm, PD, for Kansas City station, KLJC, shares, “Obviously, Wherever You Are has received national recognition for being a great album. I think we all know why - it truly contains great songs, and ‘Tunnel’ is one of them. ‘There’s a light at the end of this tunnel’, is a phrase that everyone connects to. At some time or another, we all feel weighed down or burdened by something, but what an encouragement to know that tomorrow brings hope!”
“We’re so encouraged by the energy behind ‘Tunnel’ at radio right now, and we’re very excited about all the positive feedback we’re getting from our fans on Chronology,” comments Tai Anderson.
Also gaining momentum this week are “Third Day’s Biggest Fan” (www.thirddaysbiggestfan.com) and “Third Day in the UK” consumer promotions.
“Third Day’s Biggest Fan” launched by www.thirdday.com on March 12 with several radio stations accepting video submissions from fans stating why they should win the title of “Third Day’s Biggest Fan.” One winner per participating radio station, and one winner from www.thirdday.com, will have their one-minute video featured on the Chronology, Volume Two (2000-2006) DVD, which hits streets August 7. The winner will be announced by www.thirdday.com on April 16.
In addition, spurred on by its intense international touring schedule, Third Day decided to offer a lucky fan
the opportunity to see one of its shows “across the pond” later this summer and “Third Day in the UK” was born. The www.thirdday.com sponsored promotion, which provides tickets to the band’s May 7 show at Royal Albert Hall in London, along with a four-day stay in the city, starts on March 19, with a winner announced by www.thirdday.com on March 27.
