Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Grammy and Dove-Award winning artist Scott Stapp launched his "Proof of Life" tour last month, opening each set with his first No. 1 Christian radio hit, "Slow Suicide," from Proof of Life, his second solo album that was released on Wind-up Records Nov. 5, 2013. Receiving critical acclaim for the tour, Stapp is taking his fans on a journey through the new music alongside his mega Creed hits like "With Arms Wide Open," "Higher," "What If," "My Sacrifice" and more. The tour continues this month in the UK, Netherlands and Germany, followed by summer tour dates and his first-ever Christian music festival (Sonshine Festival) in the US. See www.ScottStapp.com for all the latest tour dates and ticket information.
 
During the first leg of the US tour, Stapp closed each set with the title track from Proof of Life. The song is poised to become his second major Christian radio hit, debuting last week at No. 19 and moving to No. 15 this week on the Top 30 Billboard Christian Rock chart. The song is also "Most Added" for the second consecutive week.
 
"I had to present the incontrovertible proof of my life in a candid and honest way that revealed the real me," says Stapp, regarding the song and key to the whole album. "If I've been able to do so, the reason is all about recovering the strength of my faith--the faith that lets us see that we are not only protected, but nurtured and preserved by a love that knows no limits."
 
"Victimhood did me in for years," adds Stapp. "You couldn't tell me that I was responsible for the choices I'd made. Yet, until I owned up to that responsibility, I couldn't accept my story. My day-by-day recovery is anchored in the acceptance of my past as the necessary link to my present and future. When I sing, `You can't deny the truth that hits you right between the eyes,' that truth is rooted in accountability. And the most profound truth--as well as the most profound proof--is that I'm alive today because I'm accountable for my thoughts and actions as an imperfect human being."

Proof of Life is Stapp's first new material since the release of his 2012 uncensored memoir, Sinner's Creed, in which Stapp shared his life story for the first time--from his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise of Creed, his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith and the launch of his solo career. The gripping memoir is "proof" positive for Stapp that a higher power is always present, despite the colossal messes we sometimes make of our lives. Proof of Life is an 11-track collection of songs that chronicles the extension of his journey.
 
The new songs reflect the maturity and wisdom of an artist that has sold nearly 30 million albums with Creed, had three Grammy nominations and one win for Best Rock Song with "With Arms Wide Open," and 11 #1 Singles with "My Own Prison," "Torn," "What's This Life For," "One," "Higher," "What If," "Are You Ready," "With Arms Wide Open," "My Sacrifice" "One Last Breath," and "Overcome."  Creed put out six albums - My Own Prison (1997) 6x Platinum, Human Clay (1999) 11+ million (Diamond), Weathered (2001) 6x Platinum, Greatest Hits (2004) 2x Platinum and Full Circle (2009) Certified Gold. Scott won his Dove Award in 2005 for his song/performance of “Relearn Love” as part of the Special Event Album of the Year for The Passion of the Christ: Songs.
