Dove Award-winning rock trio, Tree63, will release it's third album, The Answer to the Questions, in stores tomorrow, March 9th. Two of the singles in the album which were already released have climbed the radio charts. Already, Inpop Records' Tree63 has received a chain of #1 and Top 5 singles with its first two releases, the self-titled debut and the 2002's The Life and Times of Absolute Truth. Now, with this third release, already, there is praise and expectations from radio programmers all over the country. In addition to this, "Blessed Be Your Name" has hit #30 in the R&R CHR chart.

“Tree63 is one of the surprises of the new year,” radio program VP Jon Rivers said. “Seemingly out of nowhere, their version of ‘Blessed Be Your Name’ is a fresh treatment of an already established worship favorite. They somehow developed the perfect blend of intimate, edgy vocals cradled in gentle rock riffs and grooves that fit perfectly in today’s contemporary formats. Our listeners love it!”

“‘Blessed Be Your Name’ is already the biggest AC single Inpop has ever had,” said Steve Ford, general manager for Inpop Records. “To debut at #9 is a huge accomplishment, and both singles are showing no signs of slowing down.”

This album exemplifies the band's trademark guitar-driven sound, combined with worshipful lyricism. The Answer to the Question was produced by Jason Burkham, Nathan Dantzler, and Tree63's front man John Ellis who wrote every cut except "Blessed Be Your Name", written by Matt Redman.

“This is a record of songs about God, about our love for Jesus, about some of the frustrations that come with being alive with Christ in a world dead with sin,” said John Ellis. “[The Answer To the Question] happens to be the closest we’ve ever come to capturing the true essence of what Tree63 is live, which is exciting.”
