Third Day have revealed plans to return to the road in 2013 for a nationwide tour in support of their brand new album, Miracle. The veteran Christian rockers will hit Massachusetts for a show at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell on Sunday, March 2. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $27 to $77, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the venue’s box office and website. Opening the show will be Colton Dixon and Josh Wilson.

Miracle, Third Day’s eleventh studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Move, debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 after its release earlier this month. The band recorded the album in their Atlanta-based recording studio with legendary producer Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam).

The band credits O’Brien for helping to push their sound and creativity in new directions. “Brendan O’Brien brought an incredible element of quality control, and really challenged each member of the band to bring his ‘A game’ to the studio each day,” said bassist Tai Anderson in a press release.

“To have something new to say and to say it in a different way is really exciting,” added lead vocalist Mac Powell. “It’s reinvigorated us as a band.”

Miracle features singles “I Need a Miracle” (video is streaming below) and “Hit Me Like a Bomb”, as well as a cover of the Cat Stevens classic “Morning Has Broken”.

Prior to the show in Lowell, Third Day will stop in Maine for a show at the Bangor Auditorium on Monday, March 3.
