Nashville, TN....March 1, 2012.... With the most-added Billboard Christian AC single this week as well as the No. 2 Christian song on iTunes, the buzz for MercyMe's May 22nd release, The Hurt and The Healer, is rapidly escalating. 
 
With an uninterrupted string of 23 #1 career singles, the award-winning and multi-platinum selling band sure seems to have another hit on their hands with the title track garnering a whopping 61 adds from AC, CHR and Inspo formats combined. In addition, the single even debuted at No. 28 on the AC-Monitored and No. 29 on the AC-Indicator charts its first week out.  
 
"The Hurt & The Healer is a celebration of that moment when these two worlds collide.... the deep need for healing and the God who provides it, " remarks lead vocalist Bart Millard. 
 
Produced by Brown Bannister and Dan Muckala, The Hurt & The Healer features signature MercyMe anthems, engaging pop songs and worshipful and intimate moments.
 
"For whatever reason, God has called us to help people through the healing process, so as we began this project, we thought, 'do we even try to fight it, this is kind of who we are,' " said Millard recalling songs like their worldwide hit "I Can Only Imagine," "Homesick," "Bring the Rain," "Finally Home" and more.  "The idea is to create an album to help bring healing to people, but not just healing; even in the midst of life's worst moments, there's this irony of feeling more alive than anytime before; that moment when we embrace our kids a little tighter and we reevaluate what's important in life," he continues. "The whole album revolves around this common theme, but it's not all really heavy.  We hope it helps people get to a better place in these moments that seem to cripple us at times."
 
On April 19, just after closing out another successful Rock and Worship Roadshow tour, MercyMe will embark on a headline tour also featuring Chris August and Moriah Peters. More dates are currently being added, and current shows can be seen below or by visiting MercyMe's website.
