GRAMMY®-nominated band Building 429 is wrapping up one of their most successful years yet thanks to a big hit radio single, a holiday EP, and the announcement of a new partnership. 

Kicking off 2019, Building 429 lead vocalist Jason Roy and the band's longtime manager, Gabe Vasquez, launched their new record label 3rd Wave Music. Partnering with Fuel Music for global distribution, the band released their first independent single, the powerful anthem "Fear No More." Receiving tremendous support from stations around the country, "Fear No More" was one of the biggest independent artist singles to ever hit Christian radio with an astounding 35 adds in its debut week. The song continued to impact, climbing to No. 4 on Billboard's National Christian Airplay chart and remaining in the Top 5 for nine weeks. Additionally, the band's multi-top charting and RIAA-certified Gold single "Where I Belong" landed on Billboard's Top 10 Songs of the Decade. 

The band also recorded a Christmas EP, A Thrill of Hope, which released in November. The title single, "A Thrill of Hope (O Holy Night/Agnus Dei)," is currently the No. 1 Most Added at AC Indicator as well as Hot AC, and is No. 4 Most Added at AC radio. The song's official lyric video is here.  

"It's always a challenge to record standards like 'O Holy Night' Or 'Agnus Dei,'" Jason Roy shares about the recording of the holiday single. "There are many amazing versions that exist, but I had been working on a version of both songs together for years and it was incredibly important that whatever we added to our version of both songs would hopefully be powerful. We finally landed on something that we think is special, and we hope fans of Christmas and worship music alike enjoy this new version of two amazing classics."

The EP also includes "Birthday of a King," a song originally recorded by Judy Garland and is the first time to ever be recorded by a CCM artist. Click here to stream or purchase A Thrill of Hope.

Supporting the EP, the band is on their "A Thrill of Hope Tour." Tour dates can be found here. On January 3, the band will drop their new single "Blessing I Can't See" (feat: brook(e))," and will be joining the annual Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, which kicks off January 10.
