Building 429 Claims No. 1 Position on Christian Hit Radio Chart with "Listen to the Sound"

Monday, May 16, 2011
Dove Award-winning band Building 429 celebrates the release of its fifth studio album, Listen to the Sound, this week with a No. 1 CHR single and top positioning on iTunes’ Christian & Gospel Albums chart. The record’s momentum continues to build, as Building 429 trades in a successful spring headlining tour for the “Listen to the Sound K-LOVE and Air1 Listener Appreciation Tour” through late May.
 
In less than two months, listeners and stations have helped to catapult “Listen to the Sound” to No. 1 at CHR, No. 7 at AC and No. 6 on the Billboard National Christian Audience chart. The single peaks in time for street week, as the disc itself debuts at the top of iTunes’ Christian & Gospel Albums chart.
 
The project’s reach extends beyond radio or retail, as Building 429 debuted music from Listen to the Sound live on its spring headlining tour, which wrapped April 30 in West Virginia. The tour, which additionally featured Revive and Anthem Lights, saw impressive attendance as it made its way cross-country for 20+ dates.
 
Building 429 is taking its new music out on the road again this month as part of the “Listen to the Sound K-LOVE and Air1 Listener Appreciation Tour.” The special event, which is free to listeners, kicked off May 7 in Knoxville, Tenn. and will visit eight markets, including Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Denver and Indianapolis. Air1 Program Director, Paul Goldsmith, comments, “We are so excited to show appreciation to our listeners by bringing the sound of Building 429 live in concert!”
 
Building 429 will alternate the Air1/K-LOVE concerts with CD release events in North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, California, Maine, and Pennsylvania. Beginning early June, the band will continue its promotional efforts via Summer Blast 2011 with special guests Essential Records pop/rock band Royal Tailor and EMI CMG Sparrow artist Samestate. Additional details are forthcoming. For a complete list of tour dates, visit www.Building429.com/tour.
 
Produced by Jason Ingram, Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Sanctus Real) and Rob Hawkins, Listen to the Sound, released May 10, 2011, is Building 429’s fifth studio album and debut project on Essential Records. The disc is sonically vibrant and lyrically substantive, with songs that collectively acknowledge life’s struggles, but point to the hope, grace and love of God.
