>> Furler Makes Final Newsboys Appearance In Orlando
This past weekend, attended Disney's "Night Of Joy" in Orlando, FL, where Newsboys headlined the Magic Hat Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park on Saturday. While the band performed two back-to-back sets, former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler joined new vocalist Michael Tait on stage both times to perform their hit "Breakfast" with the band. During the second and last performance of the night, Furler announced that this would be his final appearance with the Newsboys. When it came time to introduce the band members during the song, Tait insisted Furler have the honors. The pair hammed it up quite a bit for what would be a rousing bow for the Aussie singer. It was certainly a bittersweet moment! Check out a video clip we took of the last moments of the song! (Sorry for the crummy audio!)

>> Project 86 Frontman To Release New Book
Late last week, Project 86 made this announcement -- Andrew Schwab has a new book coming in October! The name of the book is "FAME IS INFAMY." This is a collection of short stories, poetry, and other creative writing confronting our culture's current obsession with self-promotion and fame. Andrew reflects on our our collective identity crisis and asks some soul-searching questions along the way. This will be an entertaining and spiritually uplifting read for anyone who is searching for meaning in a meaningless time. More to come!!"

>> Starflyer 59 Heads Back To Studio
Last Wednesday, Starflyer 59 announced plans for another new studio album! Jason Martin writes, "Starting work on a brand new album this demo of a song called 'Kick The Can' up now...Will be posting new songs here and there for your listening pleasure. SF59" Unfortunately, it looks as though Martin has since yanked the demo, but keep your eyes peeled to their MySpace for the latest as the new album develops!
