Jason Castro Previewing New Album With EP Release
On August 28, Castro will release both a digital and Walmart exclusive EP, entitled Starting Line EP, both featuring tracks from the new album. The digital EP will be available at all online retailers.
"I really can't begin to tell you how excited I am about my new album, Only A Mountain. I've had some amazing things happen to me recently – marrying my wife, the birth of our daughter - and now this. Life really is beautiful, and that's what I want people to be reminded of when they listen to these new songs," said Castro. "It's been a long and exciting road getting to this point where I am now. A place where I feel like I have really discovered myself, both musically and personally, and this album really captures that journey. A journey full of struggles, but never absent of hope. I think that's what comes out in these songs. Regardless of where you come from or what you're going through, there's hope here for everyone."
In addition to preparing for his upcoming release, Castro will also be joining The Winter Jam 2012 Tour (West Coast). The tour is the United States' most popular Christian tour outselling Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Bon Jovi tours for the first quarter last year with over 500,000 in attendance. The tour kicks off on November 9 in Ontario, CA, and features TobyMac, RED, Sidewalk Prophets, Jamie Grace, Chris August, Group 1 Crew Dara Maclean, Capital Kings and speaker Nick Hall.
On August 28, the digital and Walmart exclusive EPs will feature the following tracks from the new album:
