NASHVILLE, Tenn.-Love Riot, the highly anticipated new studio recording from Platinum®-selling, GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys, is set to bow March 4, with digital pre-orders available now at iTunes and Amazon Music. The band's FairTrade Services debut, Love Riot was produced by Mark Needham, whose mixing credits include Imagine Dragons and Shakira; and Zach Hall (Five Knives); as well as Seth Mosley (TobyMac, for KING & COUNTRY) and Mike O'Connor for Full Circle Music.

The project is highlighted by "Guilty," the theme song of Pure Flix's upcoming motion picture "God's Not Dead 2," also featured on the film's official soundtrack releasing March 18 from FairTrade Services. Newsboys return to the big screen for an appearance in the movie, the sequel to Pure Flix's 2014 hit "God's Not Dead," which was inspired by the band's chart-topping, Platinum®-certified single of the same name.

Featuring 10 selections, Love Riot also showcases the title-cut, a call to reach the world with love; the worshipful "Hero"; and the adrenaline-pumping "Crazy," an anthem inspiring believers to live radically for Christ, among other songs.

"When I speak from stage, I often talk about love," says Newsboys frontman Michael Tait of the album's inspiration. "Darkness has been so prevalent in our culture. Let's have a love riot-it's time."

"It doesn't work to get out there and point a finger," drummer Duncan Phillips adds. "We want to impact the world with a straight and true message, and deliver it with all-encompassing love."

Newsboys are currently performing selections from Love Riot as they headline the multi-artist 2016 Rock & Worship Roadshow, which kicked-off last week in Springfield, Missouri. The tour will visit a total of 28 cities before concluding March 20 in Mobile, Alabama. Additionally, the band hits the road later this spring for the final leg of their blockbuster "We Believe…God's Not Dead" Tour. Sponsored by Feed the Children and IF 7:14, the tour will feature GRAMMY®-winning FairTrade Services recording artist Audio Adrenaline; Dove-nominated Curb recording artist OBB; and GRAMMY®-nominated Gotee singer/songwriter Ryan Stevenson.

Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, Newsboys' high-energy live performances and string of mega-hit singles, including "We Believe," "God's Not Dead" and "Born Again," continue to make the band one of the genre's most iconic artists. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units, amassing eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.
