GRAMMY® nominated, Dove Award-winning Building 429 has released another coast-to-coast radio hit with its new single "Fear No More." Meant to encourage listeners to hold fast to faith amid life's inevitable setbacks, the song gathered a remarkable 35 adds in its debut week at radio to become one of the biggest independent artist singles to ever hit Christian radio. The song also becomes the No. 1 "Most Added" single at both AC and Hot AC/CHR radio this week.
Widely known for its RIAA Gold-selling "Where I Belong" and more chart-topping No. 1 radio hits like "We Won't Be Shaken," "Listen To The Sound" and "Glory Defined," Building 429's "Fear No More" is the first release from its newly-formed 3rd Wave Music with The Fuel Music distribution. The song is available now at digital retailers and streaming outlets globally from https://the-fuel-music.lnk.to/fearnomore.
Following Billboard premiering Building 429's new label and distribution news along with the single last month, "Fear No More" is being heard now at SiriusXM "The Message," who also premiered the band's performance video of the song. "Fear No More" is further being heard on Family Life Network (Bath, NY), KAMB (Merced, CA), KADI (Springfield, MO), KLJY (St. Louis), WBFJ (Winston Salem, NC), WBYO (Philadelphia), WCLN (Fayetteville, NC), WFRN and WHPZ (South Bend, IN), WJIE (Louisville, KY), WJTL (Lancaster, PA), WLAB (Ft. Wayne, IN) and many more.
"Love that we were among the first to hear Building 429 play their new hit single 'Fear No More' live as 3,500 enthusiastic music fans packed our local outdoor events festival, Chasco Fiesta, which the band headlined in New Port Richey, FL," says Dave Cruse, The Joy-FM Network Music Director. "And now we're inviting our listeners to re-experience the new music as we spin the song for everyone listening on The Joy FM to enjoy."
In this new season for Building 429, members Jason Roy (vocals), Michael Anderson(drums), Jesse Garcia (guitar), Aaron Branch (bass) and Steven Stewart (keyboards), are excited to release more new music and content as often as possible. The band's new model breaks the mold of release schedules that kept fans waiting two to three years between record cycles for new music and instead focuses on releasing songs, videos, remixes and covers every few months.
"The live show has been a point of focus for us," Roy shares, "and the fans have always been incredible supporters of our desire to push the boundaries live. It only stands to reason that we lean into that in the studio as well."
When recording the choir on "Fear No More," the band utilized the talents of Tim Davis, a critically acclaimed music producer known for his vocal work on Glee as well as numerous TV and live events, as well as invited Brooke DeLeary of the 2019 JUNO Award-winning duo, LOVECOLLIDE, to join in on vocals.
For Building 429, anthemic battle cries about living an unshakable faith have been the catalyst to multiple hit singles and playing for millions of fans in sold-out venues internationally. "Fear No More" continues this legacy as the band, one of Christian music's top artists, opened its current headline "Live The Journey Tour" with multiple back-to-back sold-out concerts. The tour features special guests Sanctus Real, Stars Go Dim, Blanca, We Are Vessel and The Color on select dates.
