Finding Favour is (L to R): Matt Pacco, Dustin Daniels, Blake NeeSmith, Allen Dukes, Jon August
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AUGUST 25, 2017) Gotee Records’ Finding Favour has just released their latest album, Farewell Fear, which is available now by clicking here or visiting FindingFavour.com. Already charting Top 10 on iTunes’ Christian & Gospel albums chart, Farewell Fear is the follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 release, Reborn, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian Albums’ chart.
Being a band for now 12 years, while they were preparing for this new album Finding Favour – Blake NeeSmith, Allen Dukes, Dustin Daniels, Matt Pacco and Jon August – was in a place of believing the songs that they wrote, yet they were still walking in fear. “We’re all in our thirties—most of us have wives and kids—and there’s fear involved in that,” shares Blake NeeSmith. “We wanted to discuss honest stuff in these songs, and there’s fear involved with that too. Early on in this album’s writing process, the statement we wanted to make became clear to us: ‘Lord, we trust You and know You have plans for us; so we don’t need to live in fear.’”
CCM Magazine has already praised the new album, recently sharing, “Farewell Fear marries intriguing organic and communal elements with beautifully polished pop melodies…The end result is a musical blend that’s more interesting than anything in the band’s catalog to date.” The track “Mountains Must Move” is also featured on We Are Worship.
The album’s debut radio single, “It Is Well,” has already hit Top 35 on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart and is currently Top 30 on the Billboard Christian Indicator chart. The newest single, “Get Down,” is at Hot AC/CHR now.
Finding Favour will be heading out on a 40-city major market tour in 2018. Further information will be announced later on this year. To date, the band has previously toured with TobyMac, Jeremy Camp, Mandisa, Building 429, Crowder, and Lauren Daigle. Each of their radio singles has charted in the Top 30 of Billboard’s Christian Airplay/Audience chart, including their Top 10 single “Cast My Cares,” which was a Billboard Top 40 song of the year in 2015. Finding Favour band has been a Top 5 Air1 artist of the year for the last two years and was nominated for a 2016 KLOVE Fan Awards “Breakout Single.”
