The Newsboys have been blessing fans with songs of hope and encouragement for more than 30 years. This Australian band has released 16 albums, more than 30 hit singles and five gold singles. "God's Not Dead" is one of their most recognized songs, and songs like "He Lives" and "Your Love Never Fails" are well-known worship songs that continue to be played in Christian congregations across the world. Their core music style is Christian rock, but they have also composed songs in other Christian contemporary genres. The band has undergone many transformations since their beginnings, and they are currently billed on tour as "Newsboys United."
Changed, Yet the Same
The Newsboys formed as a Christian rock band in the Queensland town of Mooloolaba in the late 80s. The band was comprised of members John James, Peter Furler and Phil Joel, and they later acquired a guitarist, Jody Davis. The band signed with Star Song in 1990 and released seven albums under this label. Star Label was bought by EMI/Sparrow, and the Newsboys continued to gain in popularity. James left the band in 1998, and Furler took over as lead vocalist for Step Up to the Microphone, their first album for Virgin. The disco-style album Love Liberty Disco was released a year later, and "It is You," one of their biggest Christian contemporary music hits, hit the airwaves in 2002. Davis left in 2003, and Paul Coleman joined as the new guitarist in 2004. Joel left the band in 2006. Coleman left in 2009, and Davis returned. Furler left after the release of In the Hands of God in 2009. Michael Tait of dc Talk joined as vocalist for the 2010 release of Born Again, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. In 2017, Furler and Joel returned for the Newsboys United retrospective tour. The release of Newsboys United in 2019 followed.
