Nashville, TN – Grammy® nominated and Dove award winning alternative music legends The Choir are beginning 2017 with another album-honoring tour. Beginning March 17, the band will be performing their best-selling 1989 release, Wide Eyed Wonder, in its entirety, alongside other favorite songs, both new and old. Long time fans have been thrilled that Wide Eyed Wonder's bass player Robin Spurs will reunite with the band for the upcoming tour.

In celebration of the early success in their PledgeMusic campaign to fund a new studio album, The Choir is partnering with NoiseTrade to give away their last studio album Shadow Weaver. This bonus addition has 30 tracks that include the original album, a band commentary edition plus 3 rare bonus cuts. Shadow Weaver is available now at this link:  http://noisetrade.com/thechoir/shadow-weaver-bonus-tracks

Hindalong states, "Wide Eyed Wonder was a special time for our band. For me personally, my daughter Emily was just born, and I know Dan and Derri had significant life changes as well. Robin Spurs was playing bass, and brought an energy to The Choir that was wonderful and spirited. This tour will be a great time to rekindle our friendship and chemistry.”

The current PledgeMusic campaign will fan-fund a new studio album and re-master and re-issue Wide Eyed Wonder on vinyl and CD. The leaders in direct-to-fan platforms, PledgeMusic allows artists to get more personal with their fans, offering pledgers not only early access to music in various platforms, but entertaining exclusive band updates and behind the scenes content. Fans will also be able to pledge on special merchandise and one-of-a-kind experiences.  These include the opportunity to play on the band’s new studio album, acoustic personalized videos, signed acoustic guitars with hand-written lyrics, and others.  More information on the campaign is at pledgemusic.com/thechoir.

“The Choir is one of those rare, favorite bands that I was blessed to be a part of, even if for just 2½ years,” Spurs explains. “I am humbled and honored to be invited to join Steve, Derri, and Dan on the road once again for the upcoming Wide Eyed Wonder Tour...part deux!"
