From the spinning and raised drum of Duncan Phillips to the high-octave vocals of the frontmen Michael Tait and Peter Furler, the Grammy- Nominated and Platinum- selling Newsboys are set to bring their amazing concert experience home with United: Live to release on April 17th. The EP from FairTrade Services is available to pre-save now and arrives just in time for the premiere of the bands' Friday Spring Concert Series on their over one million follower YouTube channel.
Recorded live during the recent Greatness Of Our God tour, the EP features The Greatness Of Our God, Symphony, Love One Another, Only The Son (Yeshua), and Beautiful Story. All the songs on the EP are from the 2019 studio recording, United. The album, which debuted at number 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, brought back the original members Peter Furler and Phil Joel alongside current members Michael Tate, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankstein, and Jody Davis.
Beginning with the powerhouse anthem “Love One Another” (feat. Kevin Max), a member of Newsboys will host the premiere of a new concert video from United: Live every Friday at 7pm CT. The series will also be available on iTunes/Apple Music.
“Just a few short months ago we set out to capture some special performances from our tour,” explains Newsboys’ Jeff Frankenstein. “Little did we know we were all about to experience something that none of us have seen in our lifetime—weeks of isolation at home during a global pandemic. We hope these recordings can be a blessing for our fans while we are all ‘on pause’ in this season. We can’t wait to get back on the road, but in the meantime, we hope folks enjoy these songs live from the big stage!"

With a multi-generational fan base spanning all across the world, Newsboys are known for their electrifying set and all kinds of hits from their three decade career. The band is set to return to The Greatness Of Our God tour in the fall to finish our the postponed tour dates.
