Just as many speculated over the last few months, TobyMac announced the big news of the DC Talk reunion! The prayers of many Jesus Freaks have been answered as they will once again have the opportunity to hear & see new music from the ground breaking Christian super group. Fan’s hopes for a reunion were disappointed over the last couple of years by the surprise moves of Michael Tait taking over as front man for the Newsboys and Kevin Max doing the same with Audio Adrenaline. Tobymac, who found the most success of the trio as a solo artist, stated that he recently felt the desire to resurrect DC Talk. Feeling that his fans just aren’t buying tickets to his shows anymore, Tobymac thinks a DC Talk record is needed for a successful career move. In an unexpected twist and as a precaution to ensure interest from Christian music fans, Toby tapped former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler and former Audio Adrenaline frontman Mark Stuart to create the newly reunited version of DC Talk. Plans for a 2013 co-headlining tour with Petra are being worked on and should be announced soon.
Hope this makes for a wonderful April 1 surprise!
