Check out the latest news on Newsboys from the band's drummer Duncan Phillips...

Well, here we are at the end of 2009, a challenging, and exciting year. After finishing "The Way We Roll Tour" this past fall, we have dived back into the studio. It's such a different head space than touring. We feel this new record we're working on is a pivotal point in our career and we look forward with excitement and expectation. This record is turning out to be not only some of the best newsboys songs I've heard, but some of the finest vocal performances of Michael's and our career. Our passion, enthusiasm and focus are off the charts!

With the big changes the band went through this past year, we knew our work was cut out for us. At every show, we felt we had something to prove... and we had to win. Kind of the same feeling we had when we first jetted to the US full of drive, passion and purpose. This mission has not changed. These are feelings and emotions we have not felt in a while, and we liked it. As a band, it pulled us closer. It's been a win-win.

Yet this is a change. It will sound different. It has given us on incredible opportunity to reinvent ourselves once again. We've been here before and we've just gotten stronger. I guess you could call it newsboys 2.0. I'm convinced that this transition is ordered by Lord. There is no way that we could have pulled this off, if that wasn't the case.

My ongoing attempt to stay connected with you, the fans, has been an amazing success. My efforts have been rewarded by an ever-increasing loving community that we've built on Facebook . I attempt to and am successful most days to visit and make comments and status updates. This is always been my heart, but up until this social technology was available, it has been impossible.

Also, my personal website,, is being revamped. The look and feel of it will be made well... simpler. Via Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and YouTube I make regular text, photo and video updates. My online store is also expanding with brand new t-shirts, 8x10s, signature drum sticks, drum heads and more. Please come and visit either or

newsboys are currently preparing for Winter Jam 2010. This is going to be a brand new show. We are definitely stepping it up - we'll be hitting you guns a blazing! Production, as always, will be world class. Some you've seen, some you haven't. We are ready and hungry....the 'boys are back in town, so... look out!

We spent a few days this past week rehearsing for Winter Jam, plus managed to squeeze in time for a photo shoot... check out my behind-the-scenes pictures on Facebook!

Come join us Spring 2010 for this new and improved version of newsboys!

Love to all,
