The release of their current Top 20 single “The Only Name (Yours Will Be),” also the namesake for the tour, comes on the heels of the massive success of their No. 1 hit song “Redeemed” and marks the second single from their ninth album Love Come To Life. In addition, the group and their smash hit “Redeemed” just received four Dove Awards’ nominations for “Song of the Year,” “Contemporary Christian Performance of the Year,” “Rock/Contemporary Song of the Year” and “Praise and Worship Song of the Year.”

“We’ve seen God do so much on these tours that we not only have a great excitement about ‘The Only Name Tour,’ we have an even greater expectation about what God is going to do,” said the band’s frontman Mike Weaver. “It’s become apparent to us that He wants to do a whole lot! We’re experiencing so much more fulfillment trying to be obedient in experiencing God working that it far exceeds anything we could try to do on our own. We can’t wait!”
