Hey all – just wanted you to know, we HAVEN’T fallen off the face of the earth. We have been furiously writing for a new record and the launch of the new Hawk Nelson. There is so much exciting stuff to tell you about, and in the next few weeks you will be hearing MUCH MUCH more from us!
Nashville, Tenn – April 26, 2012 –Hawk Nelson enters a different chapter in the band’s history as they announce their new lead singer Jon Steingard. No stranger to their fans, Steingard has been the guitarist for the past eight years. Hawk Nelson will continue with members Daniel Biro (bass), Justin Benner (drums) and Steingard (guitar, vocals).
“I am blessed to announce that Hawk Nelson will be fronted by none other than the talented Mr. Jonathan A. Steingard,” states co-founder and bassist Daniel Biro. “The chemistry we share as a band cannot be fabricated. In other words, we know we have something special here. We’re very excited to be working on a bunch of new songs for everybody. It’s a new day, and we want to make the most of it.”
“Moving forward, I couldn’t be more excited to step into the role of lead singer,” shares Steingard on his new role.
Hawk Nelson is currently working on writing new music and preparing to introduce the new line-up to their fans. The upcoming music will showcase a fresh direction combined with the signature Hawk Nelson sound their fans love.
“We are knee-deep in writing a new record at the moment, and these are some of the most inspiring songs we’ve ever worked on,” says Steingard. “As a band, we’ve had our fair share of highs and lows, and through it all we’ve become a family. A further blessing has been the incredible amount of support we’ve received, particularly over the past few months of growing pains, from family, friends, other bands, industry folks, and especially the wonderful hawk-listeners that have stuck with us on our journey. The future is bright.”
Former frontman Jason Dunn announced his departure from Hawk Nelson earlier this year to pursue his solo project, Lights Go Down (facebook.com/lightsgodown). Hawk Nelson wishes him the best of luck in his new venture.

We’ve started a new series here on the Fall Roadshow, called “3 Questions With Jason Dunn”. Now if you don’t know Jason, from Hawk Nelson, is a bit of a wild card so you never know what you’re going to get. So here’s the rules. Sometime during the day we grab Jason and have him ask three questions to someone else on the tour.
Tonight was Mr. Matt Maher’s turn….
