pureNRG Nashville, TN (June 24, 2008) ---- Fervent Records’ popular tween group, pureNRG, is scheduled to release their first Christmas project, A pureNRG Christmas, September 23, 2008.

The CD showcases a wide variety of Christmas classics done “pureNRG style” and features such favorites as “All I Want For Christmas,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” The group once again teams up with producers Rob Hawkins and Mark Hammond, who produced their self-titled debut and the latest top-selling and critically acclaimed album, Here We Go Again.

“It was so much fun to sing Christmas songs earlier this summer when we were in the studio,” says pureNRG. “Christmas is our favorite holiday so we can sing these songs anytime of the year and we hope they bring a strong message of hope to everyone’s Christmas season.”

In support of A pureNRG Christmas, the group will join Casting Crowns’ Christmas tour that kicks-off in Houston, TX on November 28 and ends December 13 in Reading, PA. Also joining the tour are Natalie Grant, Avalon, Michael English, and Denver and the Mile High Orchestra.

pureNRG recently treated fans in Nashville, TN to a full live concert that was taped for JCTV and will air on July 4th, at 5:00 pm. There will be two additional airings on July 4th at 10:30 pm CST and again on July 5 at 10:00 pm CST. The concert has also been made into a DVD, Live & More, that features exclusive backstage interviews and will be available at all Christian retail outlets on July 22nd.

Also on July 22nd, pureNRG will be releasing an interactive devotional, “The Message Behind Our Music.” It offers fans an inside look at all twenty-four of pureNRG’s songs. Each devotional is based on a scripture and has a “call to action” where they are able to do an activity, journal, and interact with each entry. It’s a wonderful way to bring the Bible to life through the lyrics of music.

pureNRG has a busy summer of tour dates that include performances at Creation East and Creation West. This fall, pureNRG will hit the stage at Disney’s World Resort in Orlando, FL for an appearance at “Night of Joy, on Saturday, September 6th.
