This fall, Christian rock and worship pioneers the Newsboys will help "change the world" with their Restart Tour in promotion of their new album of the same name.

The tour will stop in 20+ places across the U.S., kicking off on September 20 and running through October 27.

Restart is slated to release on September 10 with Sparrow Records.

Compassion International will be sponsoring the tour as they did on the God's Not Dead Tour. The organization saw more than 10,750 children get a sponsor last time around, and hope to add to that total.

For King & Country, Moriah Peters, and Rapture Ruckus will be touring in support of the Newsboys.

Restart is the third studio album with Michael Tait as lead vocalist and will combines the elements of pop, worship and rock that made fans love the first two records with him, Born Again and God's Not Dead. In the nearly four years since Tait joined the band, over 650,000 records have been sold, while five singles have attained No. 1 status on the radio charts.

The album's first single, "Live With Abandon" reached No. 20 on the National Christian Audience chart this week, and also broke into the Top 10 at Christian Hot AC at No. 6.

"At the start of this record two years ago, we knew we'd be taking great risks, but people will be excited about this album because we've pushed the music and taken it further than we've ever taken it before," said Tait in a press release. "I have not felt this way about anything I've been involved in musically since Jesus Freak."
