NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (May 29, 2015) - The wait is finally over: Sidewalk Prophets
will release its third Fervent Records studio album on Aug. 28, ending a
three-year wait for fans of the Dove Award winning band.
Fans can hear new music from Something Different now by downloading the first single "Prodigal" at http://smarturl.it/swpprodigal, by pre-buying the record in their webstore http://smarturl.it/SWDSDPresale
or catching the group live this summer, beginning this weekend at the
KLOVE Fan Awards in Nashville and continuing in the Fall on the All The
Earth Is Holy Ground Tour with Tenth Avenue North.
"'Something Different' is the album we've always hoped to create," lead
singer and founding member Dave Frey said. "I believe that it captures
the passion, energy and musical creativity that we have always longed
for people to hear. Every song is rooted in Scripture, and every moment
of the record has been carefully pieced together. We've gone to great
lengths to share this season of our lives with listeners. "
Something Different is produced by Seth Mosely and will feature 14
tracks written by the band. Frey and fellow band members Ben McDonald,
Cal Joslin, Justin Nace and Daniel Macal say the album is an unashamed
declaration that Jesus Christ is the way, truth and the life and that we
stand together armed with true love, the greatest weapon against the
darkness. "Prodigal," which impacts radio on June 26, calls out to those
who have wandered far from home, find themselves isolated, ashamed or
alone. It's an anthem to remind listeners that the same feet that have
led them astray will bring them back home to a God that longs for their
returnand celebrates in their arrival.
"'Something Different' is not just a collection of songs," Frey said.
"It is an album and a journey where all the songs come together to tell
one unique story. That story is that there truly is something different
about us. That something different is Jesus Christ. I hope this album,
through the gift of music God has given us, can give listeners the
courage to live fervently and recklessly shine love in to the darkness."
In support of the album, and a topic that is of extreme importance to
them, Sidewalk Prophets will encourage fans to participate in their Be
Something Different campaign this summer. They want to incite a movement
to ignore the pressure to conform to pop culture norms in a world
dominated by immediate gratification and self-centered desires. The band
wants to tell stories of how God is using people to do extraordinary
things and will post videos of inspiring stories across their social
media platforms tagged with #BeSomethingDifferent.

upcoming shows, or to learn more about Something Different as details
