(Nashville, Tenn.) July 13, 2009 – Multi-platinum, GRAMMY and AMA winning rock band Third Day announces the follow-up to one of its most successful outings ever with the fall leg of the 2009 "Revelation Tour." Continuing on the success of the spring's 35-city "Revelation Tour" which sold out more than one-third of its dates, this fall's powerhouse tour will feature special guests Glory Revealed.
“When fans of the band who have seen us perform dozens of times over the years continue to tell us the ‘Revelation Tour’ is the best Third Day outing ever, we know what we're sensing each night isn't just our perspective," responds Third Day guitarist Mark Lee. "Believe me, this tour is every bit as special for us as it is for our fans. And while it's hard to imagine it getting even better, we know the Glory Revealed set will add to the poignancy of each night."
The Glory Revealed lineup of artists that will perform during the 12-city fall "Revelation Tour" will include Third Day's Mac Powell, author/speaker David Nasser, Laura Story, Trevor Morgan, Shawn Lewis and other special guests. As a follow-up to the multiple Dove Award-winning 2007 release Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship, project visionaries Powell and David Nasser (author/speaker) are releasing a second CD in the award-winning series tomorrow (July 14), titled Glory Revealed II: The Word of God in Worship. The Powell-produced project again blends roots-driven worship music with Biblical truth designed to musically stamp the word of God on the heart of listeners. Glory Revealed II features vocals from 21 different artists including Mark Hall, Amy Grant, Sara Evans, Shane & Shane, Natalie Grant and Brandon Heath, among others, and draws from several passages of Scripture, including excerpts from Psalms, Corinthians, Hebrews, Isaiah and more.
“Concert promoters have been buzzing with anticipation as they've been preparing for the fall's 'Revelation Tour' dates, and the Glory Revealed collective being added to the line-up is a real slam dunk," says Third Day's booking agent, Jeff Gregg of Creative Artists Agency. "Given this year's economic climate, the fact that the ‘Revelation Tour’ sold out more than one-third of its dates in the spring really sets the table for this second leg."
The fall “Revelation Tour,” which kicks off October 8 in Tallahassee, Fla. continues Third Day’s tradition of “paying it forward” by donating $1 per ticket sold to charitable organizations through its Come Together Fund. Through this fund, Third Day--who actively supports the ONE Campaign--has been able to serve charities such as Habitat For Humanity, Blood:Water Mission, World Vision’s Hope Child Initiative and is responsible for more than a million dollars in donations over the last 4 years to disaster relief in and outside of the U.S. Earlier this year, Third Day celebrated the dedication of the Gateway School for impoverished children in India which the band helped build through the Come Together Fund.
Since so many of the fans that come to Third Day's concerts attend as families, the band has coordinated a special concert specifically for them during the tour. The "Revelation Tour" will present a Third Day Family Picnic concert on October 9th in Simpsonville, S.C. In addition to Third Day and Glory Revealed, the Family Picnic will welcome special guests Jars of Clay, Thousand Foot Krutch, FM Static, Audio Unplugged, This Beautiful Republic, and B. Reith.
Third Day's forward-looking and consistent online presence gives the band and its fans an unusual level of interaction during "Revelation Tour." From up-to-the-minute updates to taking song requests on Twitter, fans are given a more immediate glimpse into the day-to-day life of a working band. Third Day's most popular online destinations are: http://thirdday.blogs.com, http://www.thirdday.com, http://marklee.posterous.com, www.twitter.com/thirdday, and http://www.twitter.com/marklee3d
Third Day continues to celebrate a hit album, recurring radio success, and the recent release of its DVD/CD project titled Live Revelations: On Stage, Off Stage, Backstage on April 7. Third Day’s latest, No. 1-debuting studio album, Revelation (7/29/08), is approaching 400,000 units scanned. After 49 weeks on the Nielsen Christian Albums sales chart, Revelation is No. 11.
The band is also benefitting from its third consecutive hit single from Revelation, “Born Again.” The song, featuring Lacey Mosley, lead singer of the Platinum-selling band Flyleaf, continues to climb Billboard's Hot Christian Singles chart and Hot Christian Adult Contemporary chart where it's currently No. 16 on both.

About Glory Revealed:
Forged from a creative vision shared by Mac Powell, frontman for Grammy winning rock band Third Day, and acclaimed author/speaker David Nasser, Glory Revealed: The Word of God in Worship won two Dove Awards, spawned the No. 1 song “By His Wounds,” and inspired people around the world to sing scripture. David Nasser’s book, Glory Revealed: How The Invisible God Makes Himself Known continues to be the perfect companion to these records. The 2009 installment, Glory Revealed II: The Word of God in Worship, brings 21 artists together to craft a new album sure to use musical creativity to plant God’s Word on hearts and minds of all ages.
Organic in feel and creation, Glory Revealed II was, in many ways, birthed as an outpouring of the original album’s impact on the artists involved. The 2007 "Glory Revealed Tour" in particular served as a catalyst for the development of a tight-knit artistic and spiritual community, setting the stage for the latest musical installment and informing the musical direction for the new recording. To craft songs for the second album, writers, musicians and artists gathered for a week-long creative retreat last summer in the woods of Georgia at a rustic hunting lodge, one that had been converted from a three-story grain silo.
