Grammy ® Nominated THE CHOIR TEAMS UP WITH UNDER THE RADAR ON LATEST TOUR

UTR IS THE EXCLUSIVE MEDIA SPONSOR FOR THE CHOIR’S 2017 “WIDE EYED WONDER TOUR”

As Part of Comprehensive Salute to the Classic record, The Choir reunites with former bassist Robin Spurs and will perform the iconic Wide Eyed Wonder album in its entirety.

The Choir partners with PledgeMusic for forthcoming album.

FEBRUARY 10, 2017 – [Nashville, TN] – Legendary Grammy® Nominated rock band The Choir is happy to announce that Under The Radar (UTR) (radarradio.net) will serve as the exclusive media sponsor of the upcoming coast-to-coast “Wide Eyed Wonder Tour,” which begins on March 17. The tour will feature a reunion with former bass player Robin Spurs, and will see the iconic 1989 album Wide Eyed Wonder performed in its entirety.

On the heels of a successful 2016 tour to celebrate their classic Circle Slide album, alternative music legends The Choir will usher in 2017 with another album-honoring tour. The focus of the band’s attention this time will be performing their best-selling 1989 release, Wide-Eyed Wonder, in its entirety, alongside other favorite songs, both new and old.

“We are thrilled to be a partner on this exciting tour,” stated Dave Trout, founder and President of UTR. “The Choir is, no doubt, a legendary band – and for decades they have been a prime example that music can be both well-crafted and faith-inspired, and effectively reach an audience beyond the four walls of the Church. Wide Eyed Wonder was my on-ramp to discovering The Choir when I was a teenager, which makes the partnership on this specific tour a joy to me personally.”

“We have been fans of what Under The Radar has been doing for years,” shared Derri Daugherty, member of The Choir. “They have a passion for curating music that has high quality standards in craftsmanship, yet has a depth of soul, hope, truth, & faith. So, the passions of The Choir and UTR are in alignment. We’re looking forward to working together with Dave and the team.”

On January 31, The Choir launched a new PledgeMusic campaign to fan-fund a brand new studio album plus a re-mastering and re-issuing of the 1989 classic Wide Eyed Wonder on vinyl and CD.
