NewsboysRestart-webNewsboys celebrated a career-defining moment this week, picking up 64 adds at Christian radio for the band's single “We Believe” from Restart (Sparrow Records/Capitol Christian Distribution). This is the biggest add week in the history of the four-time GRAMMY-nominated band, which has 30 No. 1 radio hits and more than 8 million units sold to its credit.

“We are beyond excited to see radio's enthusiasm with our new single,” said frontman Michael Tait. “This song is a testament and a definite creed for what we as Christians believe—our hope and eternal salvation! There is nothing more igniting than to watch from our stage nightly, as listeners hold fast to these beliefs along with their families and friends!”

The Newsboys debuted a lyric video and a live music video for “We Believe” earlier this year.
