Nashville, Tenn. (August 20, 2009) - GRAMMY-winning, multi-platinum artist Casting Crowns will hit 41 cities this fall on its headlining "Until The Whole World Hears Tour," with special guest Matt Redman, debuting new music from coast to coast off upcoming fourth studio release. Tour audiences will be the first to experience multiple new songs from the award-winning band, as highly-anticipated new music from Casting Crowns hits Christian radio airwaves in September. Fans can expect a fresh and powerful God-centered message from lead singer and Pastor Mark Hall, while the band also revisits its blockbuster catalog of crowd favorites like "Who Am I," "Lifesong" and "Praise You in this Storm."

Casting Crowns "Until The Whole World Hears Tour" fall tour launches amid nearly 4.5 million career album sales and bolstered by numerous awards and consistent chart-topping radio success. This fall itinerary follows on the touring heels of Casting Crowns 2008 "The Altar and The Door Tour", which set national attendance records, ranking as the top-grossing Christian music tour of 2007-2008 in Pollstar with 450,000 tickets sold in 83 markets. Highly awarded worship leader, artist and internationally noted songwriter, Matt Redman joins Casting Crowns this fall, with six solo projects and multiple compilation recordings to his credit. "I'm really excited to be teaming up with Casting Crowns for this tour. I've seen the impact their songs have made in so many people's lives - and I hope that by joining our songs, hearts and voices together we'll have some very special nights of worship all over this nation," says Redman. Artists who have covered Matt Redman songs include Michael W. Smith, David Crowder Band, Tim Hughes and SONICFLOOD.

Casting Crowns' message remains rooted in the youth ministry that Mark Hall has led on a weekly basis since 1999. That message carries through in everything, especially the steady, yet rigorous touring schedule the group has maintained since their first record. "As we travel through our journey as Christians, we come to a realization there are lots of people out there who need to hear about Jesus," Mark Hall, lead singer of Casting Crowns explains, "Through our maturity, we begin to see the world as God sees the world and work with purpose to show people Jesus, until the whole world hears." An unwavering pursuit that has inspired Casting Crowns' fourth studio album, Until The Whole World Hears, an offering of encouragement, challenge, hope and truth to a world in need of Jesus. Hall adds, "Our main purpose, above all else, is to know Him more."
