Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Love Riot, the critically acclaimed new recording by Platinum®-selling FairTrade Services artist Newsboys, debuted at the top of multiple charts following its March 4 release, marking one of the biggest sales weeks for a Christian artist to date this year. The album bowed at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan's Christian Digital Albums chart; #1 on iTunes' Christian Top Albums chart; and in the Top 10 on iTunes' overall Top Albums chart. In addition, Love Riot debuted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200.
 
Love Riot was produced by Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers) and Zach Hall (Five Knives); as well as GRAMMY® winners Seth Mosley (TobyMac, for KING & COUNTRY) and Mike "X" O'Connor for Full Circle Music. A highly sought-after producer and engineer based in Los Angeles, Needham's involvement with Love Riot marks his first production collaboration with a Christian artist.
 
The album is highlighted by the first single, "Guilty," the theme song of Pure Flix's upcoming motion picture "God's Not Dead 2." Love Riot also showcases the title-cut, a call to reach the world with love; the worshipful "You Hold It All (Every Mountain)"; and the adrenaline-pumping "Crazy," an anthem inspiring believers to live radically for Christ, among other songs.
 
Newsboys are currently performing selections from Love Riot as headliners of the multi-artist 2016 Rock & Worship Roadshow. The band will also hit the road later this spring for the final leg of their blockbuster "We Believe...God's Not Dead" Tour. Sponsored by Feed the Children and IF 7:14, the tour will feature GRAMMY®-winning FairTrade Services recording artist Audio Adrenaline; Dove-nominated Curb recording artist OBB; and GRAMMY®-nominated Gotee singer/songwriter Ryan Stevenson.
 
Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, Newsboys' high-energy live performances and string of mega-hit singles, including "We Believe," "God's Not Dead" and "Born Again," continue to make the band one of the genre's most iconic artists. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units, amassing eight Gold® certifications, one Platinum® certification, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.
