Fusebox has completed a nationwide radio promotional tour, supporting their recently released sophomore project, Once Again.

The band kicked off their promotional tour in early June, visiting radio stations in more than 16 markets in Dallas, Irving, Houston, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Birmingham, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Grand Rapids and others, talking about their project on radio stations.

In many cities, the group performed an acoustic set live on the air. In addition to radio interviews, Fusebox stopped at numerous retail stores to meet fans and sign autographs.

"We have been humbled with how many people have embraced Fusebox following the launch of Once Again," says David Smallbone, President of Elevate Records. "There is a real need for this style of worship that the young church is yearning for. God is truly blessing Fusebox with opportunities and we are honored to be a small

part of their ministry.¡¨

As if a hit radio single, heavy touring and great reviews weren't enough, Fusebox will be making several high profile television appearances in the upcoming months. Interviews and live performances are scheduled for numerous Christian television programs including Good News, The Jim Bakker Show, JC Rocks and Bridges. The group also performed live on FamilyNet's award-winning daily talk show At Home Live on June 25th.

With the promotional tour completed, Fusebox is preparing for a busy summer and fall with concert dates scheduled nationwide. In addition to Fusebox dates, lead singer Billy Buchanan will be touring with Rebecca St. James this summer and fall, performing a short set of Fusebox material at each show. Long-time fans may remember that Fusebox was formed by players in Rebecca's band, and they toured with Rebecca as her band and opening act from 2000-2003.
