Fairtrade Services' trio Citizen Way has announced the release of its third studio recording, “Love Is A Lion,” available everywhere on Oct. 18.
The band recently unveiled the captivating cover art and rolled out a brand-new track, "Love Has Won," as a part of the pre-order and pre-add campaign with digital outlets.
“Love Is A Lion's” first single, "The Lord's Prayer," is off to a strong start, with 30 stations on board just as the song begins to impact Christian radio. Fans can begin listening to the album now by clicking here.
"This album is the victory lap of the last four years of our lives, which were the hardest we’ve been through," lead singer Ben Calhoun said. "Each one of these songs is founded in God’s word. They are the stories of our lives and the people we get to live and serve with. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do."
Citizen Way will kick off their 15-city "Love is a Lion Tour" Sept. 27 in Poughkeepsie. Also featuring Jason Gray and The Young Escape, the tour will hit markets across the Northeast, Midwest and Southwest through October. The tour continues in November with Jamie Kimmett joining Citizen Way and The Young Escape. ShareWord Global is sponsoring the tour, and has a mission to distribute Bibles throughout the world. Co-sponsor is Generosity Rocks, a nonprofit founded by Calhoun. Citizen Way will donate 10% of their merchandise sales to a local ministry in each city. Tickets are on sale here.
Citizen Way broke on to the music scene in 2013 with their powerful debut album “Love is the Evidence.” The band quickly drew in a devoted fan base with their Top 5 debut single “Should’ve Been Me” and No. 1 hit “How Sweet the Sound.” The band followed with hits “When I’m With You” and "Bulletproof."
Around recording, Citizen Way is connecting personally with audiences across the country on their headlining tours and have toured alongside MercyMe, Newsboys, Jeremy Camp, Big Daddy Weave and Mandisa.
