The question “Where in the World is Hawk Nelson?” would be appropriate for the band that has been coast to coast this year playing in front of more than 350,000 fans with the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular (Jan.-March), REVOLVE tour (Jan.-Feb.), and finished up the Rock and Worship Roadshow in April. Despite this insane touring schedule, fans will be pleased to know that these road warriors have found time to record their fourth studio album in Nashville, TN. The new album “Live Life Loud” will release on Tooth & Nail Records / BEC Recordings this fall, October 6, 2009.
“Live Life Loud” features co-writing with Chris Stevens, Matthew Gerrard, TobyMac, Trevor McNevan, Steve Wilson, Bart Millard and others to be announced. The band has already been performing the title track and “Meaning of Life” for fans who attended the Rock and Worship Roadshow receiving a huge response. Stay tuned for more information about this new album. To wet fan’s appetite, new songs such as “Live Life Loud” and “Meaning of Life” plus more will be available on digital retailers (iTunes, Amazon MP3) and also at Hawk Nelson’s merch booth this summer.
In their efforts to continue to pave the road to help those in need, Hawk Nelson has committed to obtaining 5,000 pair of shoes to children in need with TOMS Shoes, whose motto is “One for One.” For every pair purchased, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need. To help them reach their goal for children in Haiti, Hawk Nelson will be hosting six in-store “Style your Sole” with TOMS Shoes in July (dates below) while they are in local areas for concerts. The band encourages fans to come meet them and be one of the first 100 fans to buy a pair of TOMS Shoes to personally meet the guys and get autographs. During the “Style your Sole” you can purchase a pair of TOMS and decorate them for your very own customized pair.
