About Newworldson
Newworldson rocketed to international fame upon release of its label debut Salvation Station (2008), which reached No. 26 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and earned the band a guest spot on newsboys' 2007-2008 "GO" tour. Further recognition followed in 2010 with the success of its first hit single "There Is A Way," peaking at No. 2 on Christian AC radio and topping Christian radio charts in Canada, the UK and Australia.

Last year Newworldson released its fourth album, Rebel Transmission, to a Top 10 debut on iTunes' Christian & Gospel Top Albums chart in both the U.S. and Canada. The project turned out another Top 3 single with "Learning to be the Light" and received critical acclaim for "its willingness to take its music down musical avenues not commonly traveled by artists of faith" ( Fans celebrated the album for its effortless fusion of pop, roots, and Motown era horn arrangements by the Chops Horns (Alicia Keys, The Police, The Rolling Stones).
