Love Like Gravity announces 'Break the Silence' pre-sale
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A new CD, “Break the Silence,” literally breaks the musical silence by popular Christian rock band Love Like Gravity. Following a six-year period since the band’s last new music, pre-sales start today for the highly-anticipated new album. Fans can pre-order on iTunes or the band's official website; the official digital release is set for January 7 2022.
The 10-song CD features “Devil’s In the Details,” the first single from “Break The Silence,” which reached No. 2 on Christian Music Weekly’s Rock Chart and remains in the Top 10.
Cale Kight, Love Like Gravity’s guitarist and background vocalist, produced and engineered “Break The Silence” at Big City Sound Studios in Georgia. Tony Palacios mixed the project at The Palace in Spring Hill, Tennessee, and Nathan Dantzler mastered the CD at Nashville’s The Hitlab.
In addition to Kight, the new music features band members Billy Pind (lead vocals, guitar, piano) and Stan Mayo (drums, synths, programming), with Palacios and Mark Siegel contributing performances.
“Break the Silence” follows “Chain Reaction,” Love Like Gravity’s sophomore album. The project, released in 2015, produced top singles on Billboard (“Slave,” Top 20; “Chain Reaction,” Top 30), as well as a feature song, “Courage” from the soundtrack of WORD Film’s “Adrenaline” movie.
The band’s self-titled debut yielded three radio hits, including “Stronger (top 15 on Billboard and Top 3 on Christian Music Weekly), “Dig” (No. 1 for six weeks at Christian Radio Weekly) and “Adrenaline.” “Adrenaline” later inspired and was featured in the film of the same name. The song’s YouTube video has close to 500,000 views.
Love Like Gravity is a band that unashamedly shouts out a message of Faith, Hope and Love. With a heart that beats for ministry, always searching for the best balance of depth and accessibility in modern music isn’t easy. However, this band seems to have found the elements to make it work.
Musical independence and a passion for the song crafting itself has led to numerous successes for the band over the past decade. Love Like Gravity has played to thousands as a headlining artist while also sharing tickets with such top industry artists as Kutless, RED, Skillet, Decyfer Down, Disciple and Manafest at events and festivals across the US. Joining forces with Tony Palacios and Jim Cooper (Decyfer Down, Building 429, High Flight Society, etc) as the band’s producers was one of the first big steps forward from the start.
The first two albums found the band’s sweet spot, especially when it came to radio. Between the self-titled debut release and “Chain Reaction,” the band saw five singles chart in the Top 30 on The Billboard Christian Rock charts. The stand out single off the first album, “Stronger,” was named No. 34 in Billboard’s top 75 Christian Rock songs of 2012.
