Powerhouse Christian pop rock group Hawk Nelson returns with a brand new album "Diamonds," via Fair Trade Services. The album, the band's seventh release, will drop on March 17th. This will be the band's second album released with the label and with frontman Jon Steingard. The band will also introduce the lineup with guitarist Micah Kuiper and drummer David Niacaris along with founding member and bassist Daniel Biro.
"The past few years have been a crazy ride for us Hawk boys," shares frontman Jon Steingard. "Lots of change, lots of amazing blessings, and also quite a few challenges. This album was forged in the fire of some of those trials. It's those times of pressure that God uses to shape us into something more beautiful. Diamonds sums up this truth we have found, that God is FOR US, He is not against us, and that we have the freedom to JOYFULLY walk in the love, grace, and mercy He has freely given us!"
"It's hard to imagine that just a few short years ago, we in Hawk Nelson were questioning if it was time to throw in the towel or to advance in a whole new direction," states bassist and original founding member Daniel Biro. "We were looking for hope. Encouraged by fellow artists in the industry, Made was a big first step. And after 'Words' helped to crack the door open again, it's Diamonds that really delivers in a big, new way. I'm just so proud of Jon and the guys. It's a great sounding record full of huge, catchy and singable songs. And remember, we're just getting started."
Preceding the album is the new single "Drops In The Ocean," which is already hiitting the Billboard Christian NCA chart at No. 21 and the Hot AC/CHR at No. 10 in just a few weeks.
Hawk Nelson has released six studio projects (Letters to the President, Smile It's the End of the World, Hawk Nelson is My Friend, Live Life Loud, Crazy Love, and Made). Hawk Nelson has been awarded two Canadian GMA awards, multiple GMA Dove Award nominations as well as a JUNO nomination. The band's music has been featured on NBC, MTV, WB, WGN, KTLA, Nickelodeon and the NFL Network. Their music has been used with special promotions for American Idol, the NFL, Nike, JCPenny's, Olympics, NHL and Michelle Obama's "Big Day Out" 2011 campaign.
