Pop/rock band Building 429 will debut new music from its forthcoming May release on a 20-city tour kicking off late March. The “Listen to the Sound Tour” will additionally feature guest artists, Australian rockers Revive and pop foursome Anthem Lights.
Opening in Iowa City, Iowa on March 23, the “Listen to the Sound Tour” will make its way cross-country from California to New York, promising fans a night of high-energy music with spiritual depth. In addition to new songs, Building 429 will be introducing new live elements to its show as well.
Building 429 frontman Jason Roy explains, “Not only will we be playing six or seven new songs off of the new record, but we’ll also be displaying a new show for the first time in some years. We've been trying out bits and pieces on the ‘Winter Blast Tour’ and getting awesome response, so we can't wait to roll the whole thing out on the spring tour!”
Additionally, Building 429 will be partnering with long-time supporters Food for the Hungry to secure sponsorships for children and families in Haiti as well as other impoverished countries. See below for more on Food for the Hungry.
“Food for the Hungry is a cause near and dear to our hearts,” says Roy. “Combine a great ministry like Food for the Hungry with great music by artists like Revive and Anthem Lights, and some meaningful time with God, and you have the makings of a great tour!”

About Building 429:
In 2005 “Glory Defined” was named BMI’s Christian Song of the Year, and the band was named the Gospel Music Association’s 2005 New Artist of the Year and nominated that same year for Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year and Song of the Year. Building 429 has toured with artists such as tobyMac and Casting Crowns, and has also headlined several tours, including Food for the Hungry’s Summerfest in 2009 and 2010, and the “30 Seconds to Change Tour” in the fall of 2010.
Dove-nominated, high-energy band Revive’s momentous climb continues with its current sophomore album Blink (6/22/10). Produced by the 2010 Dove Award-winning “Producer of the Year” team of Jason Ingram and Rusty Varenkamp, the album’s hit title track saw success at both Christian AC and CHR radio formats, propelling into the Top 10 songs in the country on Billboard’s CHR format. Originally from Sydney, Australia, the vibrant pop/rock outfit first caught the attention of Third Day frontman Mac Powell, who encouraged the group to move to Atlanta. Following that leap of faith, the band signed with Essential Records and recorded its U.S. debut with Powell handling production duties. Since then, Revive has been cons tantly touring the country opening for artists like Big Daddy Weave, Sanctus Real, DecembeRadio, and of course, Third Day. Revive also toured 2010 as part of the 44-city WinterJam tour, and earned its first Dove Award nomination in the coveted New Artist of the Year category for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards.
