Just a reminder to all Christian rock/pop fanatics.

Acclaimed rock band, Kutless (BEC/Tooth & Nail) is to headline the X2004 Presents The Kutless Sea of Faces Tour, which will boost up support for their sophomore release. Special guests will include featured opener Thousand Foot Krutch, as well as FM Static, new BEC artist Falling Up, and youth speaker Ryan Dobson.

The Sea Of Faces Tour will hit 44 cities nationwide beginning March 3 and wrapping up on April 24. The seat range will be around 1000-2000, tour venues representing a combination of churches and theaters in it.

"We are very excited with the way our first headlining tour has come together. This is going to be a first rate rock show with real ministry value. Kutless’ goal is to present a product that kids can be proud of ?take ownership of. This show is going to rock. We also recognize a real responsibility in the platform we have been given. We feel like it’s important for people who attend a Kutless show, whether they are walking with the Lord or not, to hear that Christ loves them, cares for them, and wants to spend time with them. From the beginning, Kutless wanted to partner with the local churches and youth pastors in helping kids to be encouraged in their new or existing relationship with Jesus. This tour will be no different.”

"Our goal for this tour is to present a real win/win for the fans, promoters, and artists involved. We’ve got bands that draw different markets, low-ticket prices ranging from $10-$14, and a very solid ministry focus. We hope that this tour represents a solid next step in terms of building Kutless as a serious touring machine. Thanks to BEC, Third Coast Artists, Interlinc, and Big Machine Media for helping Kutless to make this happen."

This tour is a follow-up to a successful 2002-2003 year for Kutless. To date, Kutless has scanned almost 150,000 copies of their self titled freshman release, and played over 220 shows in front of 180,000 people.
