Dove Award-winning trio Building 429 will headline the 30-city “Truth, Hope & Love Tour” this fall in support of their brand new self-titled album releasing Oct. 21, on INO Records. The Truth, Hope & Love Tour features special guests Addison Road and After Edmund.
Kicking off Oct. 2, in Ft. Smith, Ark., the Truth, Hope & Love Tour will hit 30 markets across the country including Minneapolis, Minn.; College Station, Texas; Springfield, Ill.; and Cincinnati, Ohio, to name a few. The tour, which takes its name from the track “Your Love Goes On” from the band’s new album, also gives Building 429 a chance to partner in ministry with World Vision, an international Christian humanitarian organization.
“We are totally amped about the Truth, Hope & Love Tour,” says Building 429 frontman Jason Roy. “All of the artists we have chosen to join us are amazing talents and have incredible hearts, which gives us great hope for the ministry and music on this tour. It is an honor for us to headline this show and we’re looking forward, with great anticipation, to unveiling the music and media surrounding our new record. We can’t wait to share the stage with these extremely talented new bands!”
“I’m really excited about the Truth, Hope & Love Tour with Building 429,” adds concert promoter Dan Fife of Awakening Events. “We have worked with Jason, Michael and Jesse since we first met them back in 2005, and this particular tour is exciting because we are now seeing more families share the music of Building 429. The band has worked with us so that we could provide a ticket price the entire family can afford. I feel like the more opportunities we have to bring the family together as a unit and share together in the live concert/worship experience, the stronger the family. We know that every time we work with these guys we are fulfilling our mission.”

Together for six years before signing with INO Records, the female-fronted pop/rock band from Dallas, TX, Addison Road is making waves with their self-titled debut release. The first radio single “All That Matters”, made the top ten on the Christian CHR chart within weeks and was featured as an iTunes discovery download, receiving over 165,000 downloads in one week. Produced by Chris Stevens (TobyMac, Sanctus Real), this self-titled release is the culmination of the band’s mission to inspire people from all walks of life to find their hope and identity in God, to be changed by His grace and to extend that grace to a world in need. Lead singer Jenny Simmons, husband and guitarist Ryan Simmons, Jeff Sutton, Ryan Gregg and Travis Lawrence all came together in 2001 when some of the members were attending Baylor University and since then have been accumulating fans in all genres.
