"We are very excited about The Summer Is Not For Sale Tour. It combines two things we're passionate about; sharing music with others that speaks to our love and desperate need for Christ, and engaging in the abolition of slaves around the world," says lead singer of the band, Doug Elder…"With an estimated 30 million slaves around the world, we believe the tour is a very tangible way to get involved. This is a fight we must win."

Additionally, The Wrecking will be performing select new songs from their upcoming album release "So Much For Love" including "Fire," "Let Everything Sing," "View From The Top," "The Antidote," and "Electricity." Touring close to 200 dates per year, the band was recently selected as guest artists at a Grammy U event in NYC, where they spoke about their touring mission as musical abolitionists. Their past radio singles "About To Fall" and "You Remain" charted as Top 10 hits on the nation-wide Air1 Radio Network. Their new single "View From The Top," will be released for airplay and on iTunes July 22, 2011. Current early online voting for the new single is at Effect Radio (


The Wrecking - (Doug Elder, Darren Elder, Karl Anderson, Chris James)
The Wrecking has cultivated a truly unique sound that is readily accessible by interlocking hook-driven rock with urban grooves and futuristic adventurism. They have emerged from the East Coast music scene as a national critically acclaimed powerhouse, touring close to 200 dates a year across the U.S. from churches to sold out music festivals in front of thousands; alongside like acts such as Sanctus Real, Jars of Clay, Third Day and more. With a stunning debut recording and a reputation for an exacting live show, The Wrecking is releasing some of the most buzz worthy song craft emerging from today's alternative music scene. //
