Single releasing to radio as band returns to stage for summer festivals
On Friday, Grammy-nominated band Building 429 released a new single, “Not Finished Yet.”
A press release stated, “Continuing the band's tradition of delivering big songs with big emotion, the new song is a stirring, hopeful pop anthem about how, even when we stray far away, God is there, ready to draw us close to him.”
"Not Finished Yet' was written by Building 429 frontman Jason Roy along with Riley Friesen, who also produced the song.
“At a certain point in life, we all get a moment to take a cold, hard, unflinching look in the mirror and take stock of who we really are,” Roy shared. “On a good day, I know that I can see love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The next day, if I’m honest, I might see the exact opposite. The truth is that the COVID pandemic gave us all a lot of time to look in the mirror and see the things that we wish we knew how to change. I realized that the beginning of freedom and hope was the moment I finally admitted I didn’t have it all together and I still needed Jesus to complete the work in me.”
A lyric video for “Not Finished Yet” also released and can be viewed below.
Since the release of their debut album in 2004, Building 429 has garnered widespread popular and critical acclaim, receiving numerous accolades all while delivering lyrically driven, anthemic hit songs with a consistent message of hope along with high-energy concerts in sold-out venues internationally.
The band received a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for “We Won’t Be Shaken,” which debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Christian albums chart and launched the title track to No. 1 at radio. Building 429 also received a 2014 and multiple 2012 Song of the Year Billboard Music Awards for “We Won’t Be Shaken” and “Where I Belong,” respectively; two BMI Song of the Year Awards (“Where I Belong” in 2013 and “Glory Defined” in 2005); a 2014 Group of the Year K-LOVE Fan Award nomination; and a “Best New Artist” GMA Dove Award in 2005. RIAA-certified Gold single “Where I Belong” became one of the longest-running Christian No. 1’s in Billboard’s history (at 15 weeks) and landed on Billboard’s “Top 10 Songs of the Decade.”
“Fear No More,” the band’s 2019 independent single, was one of the biggest independent artist singles to ever hit Christian radio, with 35 adds in its debut week. The song climbed to No. 4 on Billboard’s National Christian Airplay chart and remained in the Top 5 for nine weeks.
The band is endorsed by Fender Guitars, Gibson Guitars, PRS Guitars, Orange Amps, Ampeg Amps, DW Drums and Guitar Center.
