Nevertheless Radio Tour Coming to a City Near You: Chattanooga, Tenn.-based rock quintet, Nevertheless, who will release its second album, In the Making…, on September 16, 2008, wrapped the first leg of its radio promo tour in support of its new radio single “Sleeping In” last week. However, sleeping in is the last thing the guys are doing on the trip, as they are surprising some of their radio friends around the country, by literally camping on the station grounds, then surprising the radio staff with prepared breakfast when they arrive for work. The five-member band will be surprising even more stations over the coming weeks. The band is documenting the trip. Check out videos here.

Tenth Avenue North, from Sunny Florida to the Rocky Mountains: Tenth Avenue North spent the first part of this week in Orlando, Flor., where the band performed multiple times and participated in interviews during the annual ICRS Convention at the Orlando Convention Center. During the convention, the guys were able to spend time with CBA President, Bill Anderson (pictured above), and also interviewed with media outlets including American Family Radio and USA Radio, among others. Tenth Avenue North then departed sunny Florida and headed west to the Rocky Mountains, for a visit with their friends at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colo. While there, the band led worship and performed a few songs for the monthly chapel service, which is attended by more than 1,500 Focus on the Family employees and their families.
