NASHVILLE, April 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Undo," the first radio single from premiere new Midas Records band Rush Of Fools, garnered the #1 position on the Billboard Christian Chart, R&R Christian AC Monitored chart and CRW Comprehensive charts this week. Rush Of Fools is the first new artist to land a debut single at #1 on AC charts since Casting Crowns in 2004. The unprecedented multiple chart success positions the band as history makers in that no other debut artist on a new label has ever achieved such immediate success.
"We're so grateful to be able to help facilitate the ministry of such a dynamic and passionate group as Rush Of Fools," Robert Morrison, head of sales & operations at Midas Records said. "They are being used in so many wonderful ways, this is truly the beginning of something awesome!"
"Undo" is the first single from the group's forthcoming May 8, 2007 Midas Records release distributed through EMI CMG. After going for adds at radio on January 12, 2007, the debut single rapidly climbed radio charts and immediately garnered the highest score in the history of "20 The Countdown Magazine's" listener poll. In addition, Rush Of Fools have received a flood of My Space messages that describe incredible life-changing stories of hope and inspiration from listeners. Multiple requests have started to come in on a regular basis for copies of "Undo," in addition to personal stories told about how lives have been impacted by the lyrics, heart and message of the song.
In addition to their recent radio success, Rush Of Fools are currently touring with By The Tree and The Turning on the multi-city "World On Fire" tour in support of their debut release.
