GRAMMY-NOMINATED MATTHEW WEST SET TO LAUNCH
‘INTO THE LIGHT’ TOUR FEATURING SPECIAL GUESTS
MIKESCHAIR, LINDSAY MCCAUL AND EVERFOUND
32-City Fall Tour Kicks Off Sept. 20
Coincides With Sept. 25 Release of New Studio Album, Into The Light
NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 7, 2012 – Two-time GRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Matthew West will headline the 32-city “Into The Light” Tour this fall, featuring Dove-nominated pop-rockers MIKESCHAIR, critically-acclaimed female vocalist Lindsay McCaul and high-energy rock newcomers Everfound. The ‘Into The Light’ Tour kicks off Sept. 20, in Lewisville, Texas, and will hit venues in major markets like Houston, TX; Denver, CO.; Lakeland, FL; Savannah, GA; and Fort Wayne, IN, among others.
The “Into The Light” Tour takes its name from West’s brand new studio project, Into The Light, releasing the same week (Sept. 25). Inspired by letters submitted by thousands after West invited people to send in their personal stories, the songs featured on Into The Light were written mostly while West was on tour this past spring with Casting Crowns, where he played in front of more than 155,000 people. The stories he received touched on everything from drug addiction and abusive relationships to the rejection of apathy, and faith found in the waiting.
“Of all the stages in recording and releasing a new project, the one I most anticipate is the chance to play these songs for a live audience,” says West. “My vision is to create an unforgettable live experience that goes even beyond the songs themselves, and beyond just entertainment. When I was a kid, there were concerts that had a profound impact on my life, and on my faith. Every time I hit the road I pray that our show can have a similar impact on the hearts and lives of all who attend.”
