Chris August Hits The Road On 4 Different Tours

Chris August Hits The Road On 4 Different Tours

As the praise for three-time Dove Award winner Chris August continues to pour in for his sophomore offering, ‘The Upside Of Down,’ the Fervent Records singer-songwriter is keeping busy this fall with a jam-packed touring schedule.

August is currently on the road for his first headlining tour, ‘The Upside Of Down Tour,’ which kicked off on Sept. 14 in Franklin, IN (Indianapolis), and wraps on 30th September after 14 dates, in Gilbert, AZ (Phoenix). On 4th October in Dallas, he joins the ‘Eye On It Tour’ with TobyMac and Jamie Grace for a 10-show run, finishing up in St. Louis on Oct. 27. In November, August joins the West Coast ‘Winter Jam’ tour, visiting cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Portland. And then to close out 2012, he’ll join the TobyMac-helmed ’HITS Deep Tour’ alongside Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Britt Nicole, Jamie Grace and Group 1 Crew.

‘The Upside of Down,’ released via Fervent Records on 21st August, was co-produced by August alongside Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets) and was mixed by GRAMMY nominated engineer/producer Neal Avron (Sara Bareilles, Fall Out Boy). The release of the appropriately dubbed ‘The Upside Of Down’ occurred just four months after August sustained a brain injury from a skateboarding accident. The album’s title parallels the healing process, during which he embraced the ‘upside of down’ and was humbled by his accident.

The album’s infectious lead single, ‘Center Of It,’ has been a fixture at radio since its release in June, landing at No. 6 on the Christian AC Monitored chart this week, No. 4 on the National Audience Chart (with 6.1 million impressions), No. 6 on AC Indicator and No. 7 on CHR.
