Nashville, Tenn., March 2, 2010— GMA Dove Award-nominated worship band Pocket Full of Rocks is releasing their third studio project More Than Noise on March 2, 2010. Helmed by award-winning producer Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Leeland, Bebo Norman), More Than Noise matches heartfelt lyrics and melodies with stellar production.

“We started recording with Ed Cash in the spring of ‘09, and it's always amazing to watch songs take on a life of their own,” says lead singer and songwriter Michael Farren. “Honestly, I cannot pick a favorite. ‘When Love Whispers Your Name’ was co-written with my daughter Madison, who also sings the backing vocals on the you can imagine my fondness for that one. There is also ‘Come As You Are’, written with my friends Chad Cates and Tony Wood. This song has already had a profound effect as we've begun sharing it live. Another highlight would have to be the last-minute addition of ‘Let It Rain.’ This song was actually written back in 1999, but Ed heard it with fresh ears, and it has now taken on a whole new life as well!”

To kick off the new record, their first single “Alive” was the most added single at Christian AC for multiple weeks, with airplay on both KLOVE and Air 1. The single peaked in the Top 10 on the AC Christian radio, making more than 10,000 weekly audience impressions.

In conjunction with the release of More Than Noise, Big Fish FM is hosting a CD release concert in the band’s hometown of Texarkana, AR on March 12. Each ticket will include a copy of Pocket Full of Rocks’ new CD. For more information, visit

Pocket Full of Rocks will also join 33Miles and newcomers Kimber Rising this spring for “The One Life Tour” sponsored by Christian humanitarian organization Food for the Hungry. The tour will visit approximately 30 cities between March and May 2010. Visit for the most up-to-date tour information.
