The band with the #1 selling artist worship album of 2003 (ADORATION) is in for a very, very busy February. On the morning of Tuesday, February 3, Newsboys lead singer Peter Furler will conduct live radio interviews with stations all over the United States, giving listeners a hint about what to expect when the band's upcoming concert tour comes to their town.

The band from Down Under is still on top. R&R magazine has ranked Newsboys' "He Reigns" as the #1 Christian radio single of 2003 while CCM magazine readers have voted the quintet "Artist of the Year" in the January 2004 issue. The band's ADORATION tour begins next month. Newsboys ADORATION tour kicks off February 12 and runs through April 4 with very special guests Rebecca St. James and Jeremy Camp. Each show will feature separate sets from each artist as well as a time of corporate worship.

Congratulations Newsboys! ADORATION is honored At Retailers Choice Awards.

ADORATION. Book and music store employees from around the United States have named the project "Best Album" in the 2004 Retailers Choice Awards sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine. The awards were handed out last week in Atlanta during the annual Christian Booksellers Association International convention.

This RIAA Gold-certified album, Adoration: The Worship Album -was the fastest selling record of their career to date. "A straight-up worship album" - the first in their celebrated career - Adoration was a true labor of love for the band. "It takes humility to worship," notes Peter, who sees the current crop of worship albums as "a movement of the spirit. You have to know what it is to worship to write a worship song. People who don't know think it's three chords and plain lyrics, but those could be the three chords that change your life." - The results are a stunning collection of worship songs that will surely stand the test of time. - Read Full Article



Release Date: 11/02/04 - NEWSBOYS - devotion: Sparrow Records

On devotion, Newsboys embrace the congregational and community aspects of worship, and enlisted a true community of artists to help create the album - with guest appearances and collaborations with Rebecca St. James, Tim Hughes, Delirious' Stu G., and more. Devotion picks up where Adoration ended, continuing the worship experience with songs including "Presence", "Strong Tower", and more.


They bring their faith to life. They care about their fans by not putting bad things in their music. My family is sick of hearing about them. So are my friends. I've been to 2 concerts and the ends are pure worship.They don't take the glory. They leave quietly, reminding us that our focus should be on God.

I know I'm not the biggest fan of the Newsboys but I really feel their music has touched my life. I've never been to a concert and I've never met them but when I hear their music I melt and I feel the lord. I hope one day to see them in concert. My life is truly changed. I hope alot of people write you and I will continue to pray for you God bless........oh and one day you are gonna see me at the dove awards and the grammys I'll thank u don't God bless honestly God bless you -

Reasons why the Newsboys rawk 1) Awesome message, 2) Awesome Sound, 3) THE BEST STAGE SHOWS, 4) The Aussie accents RULE! Even if Jeff and JoFro don't have accents......

And besides, Peter Furler is hot :)! I have every record they have come out with so far, including the singles, at least 3 posters from every tour, a pick Peter threw in the crowd at one of their concerts, an autographed pick Phil threw in the crowd at another concert, and a lot of autographed CD slips(the whole band). And I have the best thing that no other fan could ever have! A shirt that was once actually Peter Furler's! Oi yeah! As you can see, I'm a huge fan...... Anyways, these guys live for God, and you can see the fruits in their lifes and their music.They inspire, and they rule!! Keep going, OiBoyz!

Newsboys for Life

Hey, I recently saw the Newsboys in concert at Loon Mtn., NH (at the Inside Out Soul Festival) and they put on one heck of a great show. I also saw them last year, same place as well. It was a wonderful sight...seeing all the people they drew, stand or sit and listen and sing along to their God-glorifying music. What a wonderful time it was! I love listening to the Newsboys' music. The lyrics are so powerful if you really concentrate on what they are saying. I am listening to their "Step Up To The Microphone" CD as I type this. I just wanted to say that they are great and I am thankful for their music. It is amazing! Thank you. God Bless!

I love Newsboys! They're the best band ever! Their music really inspires me and has a positive influence on me. Their lyrics are so meaningful and they really speak to me. Their music really picks me up when I am down. ONE of my favorite songs is "Who?" on their SHINE: THE HITS c.d.. All I have to say is that they are the best of the best!!! :) Moe

The Newsboys are the best christian band ever. My favorite songs are ''Step up to the Microphone'' "Entertaining Angles", "Woo Hoo", "Beautiful Sound", "Everyone's Someone", and Breakfast". The CD's I have are Step up to the Microphone and Love Liberty Disco.You guys rock Newsboys!!!!!!!!!

The Newsboys are my favorite band because of the songs that they sing especially "Entertaining Angels" and because they gave me a chance to go on a mission trip that I might not have gotten to go on, if they hadn't said anything. By mentioning Teen Mania and their missions and singing the songs that they sing it also put God back into my heart where He needed to be.

Thanks Newsboys

The Newsboys in my opinion are the best Christian Group I have ever heard, their music is trendy and catches the ears of the young and old, Christians and non-Christians alike. If anyone can bring a person to God through music, it's the newsboys - keep spreading the truth through your songs guys! The last two albums are ace! I wait in anticipation for their next release - keep up the good work!

About two years ago I went to a retreat that changed my life. It was a Franklin Graham festival with Newsboys in concert that night. It was awsome! Later about a year later I went back to a Newsboys concert, hey it was even better! But, although Newsboys is an awesome group they are my second. My first is dc Talk! I just recently went to their Supernatural concert! Wow! that was awsome, anytime if I had the chance I would go to another one. It was exsplosive! I could really feel the power of Jesus there exspecially when we all sang Awsome God with the band. These two groups are the best.

I thank God that they are here, and for them to keep on what they're doing in Christ.

First and foremost, Newsboys are the best Christian rock band in the history of christian music itself. I've gone to 3 out of 4 of their concerts (one of them became the largest Christian contemporary concert in North America). I've met them once and have pictures to prove it and I am very proud to say I am a Newsboys Freak. I have at least 7 posters in my room (one is autographed), and a couple of clipping from magazines and newspapers. And I have a letter they wrote (well printed) to me after I wrote to tell them how much I love them. I know the words to every song on the Take me to your Leader CD, and I'm still learning the ones on the Step Up to the Microphone CD. I had a copy of their appearance on a show that doesn't come on until 1:00 in the morning but my sister accidentally recorded over it.

I Live and breath Newsboys! ~Mystclwomn

These guys are down to earth, their music speaks Heavenly, their sound gives you a jolt of the Spirit! Talk about your Rock and Praise music. The new CD, Love, Liberty, Disco is fantastic! Every song is good. They mix up their style so that you hear a bit of all types of music. The first song , a little (clean) Tom Petty sound. 2nd one, of course, a Bee Gees type sound. One of them sounds a bit like a Run DMC style and still another has a sort of Eric Clapton ring to it. Oh don't get me wrong, they most definitely sound like the "Newsboys" and there is really no comparison as far as that is concerned. I think they just tried to please everyone with this CD. I hope they never let it go to their head like some Christian groups have. They have so much to offer and share.

I like to turn them up and Praise the Lord!

P.S. I wish they played around here more often. The last time I saw them, they were held up in N.Y. and were 3 hours late but well worth the wait.

Hi! I just wanted to say the Newsboys are the most totally awesome group I have ever heard. I think it's so great that they have been around for like 10 years and are still so popular. I love the Newsboys Live: One Night In Pennsylvania video. It is so cool. Also their new song "Love, Liberty, Disco" is great. It has an awesome chorus. I like, live for the day I get to go to one of their concerts and hopefully meet them. Anyway I guess I just wrote because I have to gush to anyone and everyone about them. My family is sick of hearing about nothing but Newsboys.

They like, rock. newsgirl101
