MercyMe announces fall tour dates, release of ‘MercyMe It’s Christmas’ album

GRAMMY® nominated band MercyMe has unveiled dates for their fall “Greater Than Tour,” kicking off this October, as well as MercyMe, It’s Christmas! set to debut on October 9. The album will mark the multi-platinum selling band’s second Christmas release. The announcements were revealed in the midst of celebrating their second No. 1 hit, “Flawless,” (Billboard’s Christian AC Indicator chart) from the best-selling Welcome to the New project (2014).

Hitting a dozen cities this fall, with 27 No. 1 songs under their belt,  MercyMe will have plenty to choose from when they bring a night of favorite hits to their audiences, while welcoming award winning artists Phil Wickham, Tim Timmons and speaker John Lynch (see tour routing below and click here for updates).

MercyMe Christmas album coverMercyMe has spent much of the summer recording MercyMe, It’s Christmas! with producer Brown Bannister at the helm. Their last Christmas album, The Christmas Sessions (2005), was heralded as an instant classic and garnered them a spot on The Tonight Show as well as ABC’s annual Disney Christmas Parade. MercyMe, It’s Christmas! reinterprets classic holiday songs mixed with originals, soaring emotive ballads, fun, up-tempos tracks and original compositions.

Welcome To the New, the GRAMMY® and Billboard Music Award nominated project released in April 2014 and landed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, becoming the highest new debut of the week. The album received rave reviews, gathering affirmation from USA Today, Rhapsody and more. The popularity of the initial single “Shake” led to a performance on NBC’s TODAY Show and over 2 million music video views on several social platforms. The project’s second single, “Greater” lived up to its name, spending 16 weeks at No. 1 on Christian radio.
