Jeff sent out the newest issue of Tenth AveNews – check it out below!:

Hello to everyone reading this new edition of Tenth AveNews,

Things are moving about a hundred miles an hour in the land of Tenth Avenue North (festivals, radio visits, iTunes recording session at Capitol Studios), but we are now less than a month away from everyone getting to hear our new record, The Struggle, and for this, we are thankful and EXCITED!

We have 2 new videos showing some of the process of how we made this album, both on the road and in the studio, so check those out and get a sampling of the new music, too! Don’t forget – you can still pre-order the record on iTunes, Amazon.com or FamilyChristian.com.

We’ve also been busy putting everything together for The Struggle Tour and can’t wait for it to kick off in September – hopefully you can join us in a city near you (details below in the tour section)

I’ve recently embarked on a new type of blog that I’ve been wanting to start for a while. The premise is simple: you ask questions, I answer them. My intention is to address every honest question. Please join me if you feel so inclined – you can remain completely anonymous if you want! http://www.formspring.me/jeffowen

That’s about all I’ve got for now, but I have a feeling we’ll talk again real soon – thanks for all your support!

    For the contest, do you have to be 18 years or older? What if my dad sent the email and if he won, he could take me? (I’m 14)

    • Alex

      Hmm… I’m not quite sure if both guests have to be 18! Try emailing rsvp@siriusxm.com with your question and they may be able to help. Let me know if they don’t get back to you.

      • Meghan D.

        I sent them a message yesterday at 9 in the morning. They haven’t replied yet.

        • Alex

          Try commenting on the facebook post and see if they respond! (Also – please stay off the site until we get this malware virus taken care of – I don’t think it’s harmful, but I want to be 100% sure and I’m working with a pro hacker to try and locate it).

          • Meghan D.

            I just want you to know, I won :D & I’m going tomorrow! I’m so excited! I asked about age, they never answered. So I just entered.

            • Alex

              Very cool! Jason was telling me about the show today. Take some photos/details from the show! :)

              • Meghan D.

                What did he say?! haha! Btw, I saw the pic of you & them on their Instagram! :D

              • Alex
