EVERFOUND CLINCHES NRT’S WE LOVE CHRISTIAN MUSIC AWARDS’ “NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR” HONORS

Currently Appearing Nationwide on World’s No. 1 Tour (1st Quarter)

“The Winter Jam 2014 Tour Spectacular”

Last night at The Roadshow 2014 tour date in San Antonio, TX,  it was announced live that Everfound  received the “New Artist of the Year” award for NewReleaseTuesday.com’s second annual “We Love Christian Music Awards.” The Russian-born brothers took home the fan-voted award beating out four other contenders in the category. NewReleaseTuesday.com has been a staunch supporter of the band from the beginning including their debut album in their 2013 Top 10 list, with reviewer Kevin Davis citing that the “album is by far the catchiest, most energetic and emotionally engaging alternative rock album I’ve heard this year.” Last year their Word Entertainment label mates for KING & COUNTRY won the “New Artist of the Year” title and later went on to win the award at both the K-LOVE Fan Awards and the Dove Awards. Everfound is currently on the world’s top-attended tour in the world (1st quarter), The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular 2014 is scheduled to hit an additional 36 cities through March. The band’s second single, “God of the Impossible,” is Top 20 at Hot AC/CHR and is also featured on the companion CD to the 20th Century Fox feature film “Son of God,”  Son of God: Music Inspired By The Epic Motion Picture.

“Thank you guys so much for voting for us,” said the band in a video displayed on screens Thursday night at The Roadshow 2014 concert. “We are absolutely thrilled that we won the ‘New Artist of the Year’ award. We have the best fans in the world. And thank you to New Release Tuesday for your support from the very beginning. As soon as our album came out you have been huge supporters of what we’re trying to do as a band musically. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Get to know Everfound in this exclusive video seen here of their early life growing up in Russia.  The band, comprised of four brothers, Nikita Odnoralov (vocals), Ruslan Odnoralov (guitar, keys, programming), Illarion Odnoralov (bass) and Yan Odnoralov (drums), were born in and spent their first few years in Pyatigorsk, Russia. Before the fall of the Soviet Union, religion was seen as a threat to the government. Their great uncle spent 20 years in prison for just owning a Bible, their father was harassed by the police for attending Bible studies and their grandmother was fired from her job for professing her faith. In the late 90s the boys’ parents, seeking religious freedom, packed everything they could into suitcases and moved their young family to Colorado. As expressed in the video and throughout their lyrics, the brothers are incredibly grateful for what their parents did and are fully aware of the freedom they receive in this country. When their parents were growing up in Russia there were no Christian radio stations and the government would try to jam frequencies when American missionaries would transmit the gospel from across the border. Now, without fear of persecution, Everfound can freely have their music transmitted all over the world.

On July 16, Everfound released their self-titled Word Entertainment debut album.  The album’s lead single, “Never Beyond Repair,” climbed into the Top 20 at radio and their track “What Love Means” is featured in the musical companion to the History Channel’s mini-series “The Bible.” In March, Everfound played at a massive kick-off event for the mini-series at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church with Mark Burnett and Roma Downey in attendance. Immediately following the event Warren declared via Twitter, “Mark my word: This band is going to be HUGE!” These multi-instrumental musicians have played more than 800 shows throughout both the U.S. and Europe and released four albums independently.

EVERFOUND RELEASES WORD ENTERTAINMENT DEBUT ALBUM TODAY

 

 

Everfound, a band comprised of four Russian-born brothers, released their self-titled label debut today to critical acclaim (iTunes link:http://smarturl.it/everfound). The band celebrated the release this past weekend at Saddleback Church in Southern California. Earlier this year they played there for a massive kick-off for “The Bible” mini-series, as their single “What Love Means” is featured on the companion CD, with Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Pastor Rick Warren in attendance. Immediately following the performance Warren declared via Twitter: “Mark my word: This band is going to be HUGE!” Everfound will continue the celebration on July 27 when they will make their national TV debut and perform their current Top 13 hit single, “Never Beyond Repair” on Fox News Channel’s “Huckabee.”

Everfound, co-produced by Seth Mosley (Francesca Battistelli, for KING & COUNTRY, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline) and Pete Kipley (Phil Wickham, Matthew West, MercyMe), features 14 tracks all written or co-written by the band. The band’s goal when creating this album was to write songs that could serve as the soundtrack to people’s daily lives. “Every song on this record is about something that we’ve gone through ourselves,” said lead singer Nikita. “The struggles, the defeats the victories, peaks, valleys and everything in between – all written with the goal of reaching people with the love of Christ.” Everfound’s songwriting fused with a rock sound that mirrors their musical influences which include The Killers, U2, Coldplay and 30 Seconds to Mars, results in a debut release that is garnering praise from critics in early reviews.
