'An Evening With Hawk Nelson & Colton Dixon' tour presented by Compassion International begins Feb. 22
Hawk Nelson is gearing up for spring with a brand-new album releasing on April 6, and tour beginning later this month. The new album, "Miracles" (Fair Trade Services), will be the band's eighth studio project and features their current single "He Still Does (Miracles)," which is currently on nearly 40 stations. The presale for "Miracles" will go live on Feb. 23 - stay tuned to the band's socials for more details.
"As we were writing this album, we wanted the songs to be full of hope, joy and excitement about who God is and what's possible with him in our lives," shared frontman Jon Steingard. "We believe that God is not just a God of the past. He's not just the God from the Bible or the God of our ancestors or our parents. He's a God who is present in our lives here and now! Our redemption - the things in our lives that need redeeming - when he comes in and redeems those things and works miracles, it brings glory to who he is. He wants to do amazing things in our lives!"
It's this foresight that found Hawk Nelson re-evaluating their mission and even questioning their future. According to Steingard, the new LP was the foursome's "most hard-fought record" to date. The struggle originated, ironically, with success. The band's 2015 release, "Diamonds," was arguably one of the biggest of their career, generating a trio of radio hits with the title track, "Live Like You're Loved" and the nine-week No. 1 smash, "Drops in the Ocean."
Crafting a follow-up, after such a steady stream of wins, proved unexpectedly challenging in the midst of personal change for the band. In the three years since "Diamonds," drummer Dave Niacaris said he fell in love with photography; guitarist Micah Kuiper got married; frontman Steingard and his wife welcomed their first child, Grey; and bassist Daniel Biro endured health complications that sidelined him for three tours.
In many ways, both personally and professionally, the journey leading up to "Miracles" has been one of surrender.
"We're just like, 'Is this something that God's going to use?' And I think he has and will," Biro said. "God has always been in the business of surprising us, and it's when we reach our end that he often shows up. He still is doing miracles, big and small, and this album, 'Miracles,' is proof of it."
Fans will be able to hear Hawk Nelson perform the new songs on the upcoming tour, "An Evening With Hawk Nelson & Colton Dixon," set to launch on Feb. 22, featuring special guest artist Sarah Reeves. The tour is presented by Compassion International and is slated to hit 16 markets.
