Grammy-nominated MercyMe will bring the second leg of their "Lifer Tour" to 14 markets Oct. 7-29. Carrying the namesake of their latest No. 1 album, "Lifer," the American Music Award winners will perform fan favorites such as "I Can Only Imagine," "Flawless," "Greater" and more, including their current chart-topper "Even If" which has been a continuous No. 1 mainstay on the Christian radio charts.
 
Joining the tour will be radio favorites Ryan Stevenson and Unspoken.
 
MercyMe's "Lifer" earned debut placements across multiple charts, including No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on Billboard Christian album charts, upon its release in March. Throughout the street week of the album, "Lifer" sat atop the iTunes Christian chart, while hitting No. 2 on the overall iTunes and Amazon music charts. "Lifer" also pulled in No. 1s internationally, garnering the highest chart placement on the iTunes Christian & gospel albums chart in India, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Italy.
 
The band's latest chart topper follows a string of top releases, including 2014's RIAA gold-certified "Welcome To The New."
 
The tour stops in Jamestown on Oct. 20, and in Rochester on Oct. 21.
 
"Lifer" is available at iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Cracker Barrel and LifeWay.

Since their debut in 2001, MercyMe have sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales, garnered more than 28 No. 1 multiformat Christian radio singles, and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with "I Can Only Imagine," "Here With Me," "Homesick" and "So Long Self." 
 
Their radio success has continued with recent singles "Flawless" (No. 1 for 15 weeks) and "Greater" (No. 1 for 16 weeks), landing them the Top Christian airplay artist spot on Billboard's 2015 yearend charts. 
 
MercyMe made history in 2014 as "I Can Only Imagine" surpassed 2 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe's "Word Of God Speak" the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian songs and Christian AC songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry's most notable talents.
