"I wrote 'Fear No More' following a year of fear, feeling like I was under siege," confesses Building 429 frontman Jason Roy. "It was a tough, tough year. We had health scares, we had bus wrecks; you couldn't write a script for a year that was more brutal than 2018. I just felt like I needed to sit down and kind of acknowledge that this place I was in the middle of is not what I would ever choose, and yet at the same time, God somehow used it. While 2018 was a year of fear for me, I'm declaring 2019 is the year of fear no more!"
This isn't what I'd choose
But it's where I'm finding you
When I'm broken and undone
Your mercy's just begun
You overcome my doubt
Your hands are reaching out
You hold me through the storm
And I will fear no more
(From the chorus of "Fear No More")
Building 429's "Fear No More" is the first release from the band's 3rd Wave Music with The Fuel Music distribution and is available now at digital retailers and streaming outlets globally from https://the-fuel-music.lnk.to/fearnomore.
