Music Scene: Building 429
Because most of us are so busy talking, social networking and working, we have lost the ability to hear the voice of God, writes Jason Roy of the band Building 429 in a recent blog entry at http://www.building429.com.
All we have to do is listen.
Building 429’s Listen to the Sound Tour comes to Grand Junction on Sunday, March 27, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.
Building 429 has a history of success with the release of four studio albums, according to a news release. The band has joined forces with Provident Label Group for its fifth studio album, “Listen to the Sound,” set for a May 10 release.
The band’s song “Glory Defined” was named Broadcast Music Inc.‘s (BMI) Christian Song of the Year in 2005. Building 429 also was named the Gospel Music Association’s 2005 new artist of the year and was nominated that same year for rock/contemporary album of the year and song of the year.
Building 429 has toured with TobyMac and Casting Crowns, and has headlined several tours including Food for the Hungry’s Summerfest 2009 and 2010, Food for the Hungry Winter Blast 2010 and 2011 and the 30 Seconds to Change Tour in fall 2010.
The title track to Building 429’s upcoming album is “a catchy little tune, but it also embodies the thought process of the record in many ways ... if we could stop for just 15 minutes, slow down and listen, maybe we would be able to hear the voice of God saying, ‘my grace is sufficient for you,’ ” Roy said.
Doors for the Avalon Theatre concert will open at 5:30 p.m. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. with opening bands Revive and Anthem Lights.
Advance general admission tickets cost $12. Tickets bought at the door will cost more.
