Band Currently Touring New Record, Tour Dates Listed Below
Portland, Maine based pop/rock band The Wrecking releases their second full-length album, So Much for Love, today. The CD is on the New & Noteworthy section of the Christian/Gospel homepage on iTunes, and is climbing up the charts, currently #10 at press time.
So Much For Love features 14 tracks that contemplate the power between struggle and the beauty of rising from brokenness. The Wrecking collaborated with producer Dustin Burnett (Augustana, Newsboys, Throwing Gravity, Jimmy Needham) and mastering by Adam Ayan (Nirvana, Madonna, Foo Fighters, Carrie Underwood, The Rolling Stones) for their anticipated sophomore release. The band is currently touring the new record, and tour dates are listed below.
The Wrecking is also breaking all kinds of molds in the music industry with a strong mainstream and faith-based following. Generating buzz in both markets and with fans around the country, the record’s first radio single, “View From The Top,” caught the eye of the acclaimed Showtime series “The Big C.” Last season the show featured an on-screen performance of the band performing their widely popular first single. You can check out a clip here.
“We are excited to share our sophomore record,” shares Darren Elder, drummer for The Wrecking. “It represents our thoughts on love and love’s impersonators from a variety of vantage points. It is a deeply personal expression for us that we hope resonates with those who want a closer look at love than what is simply perceived on the surface.”

Their 2008 debut, A New Abolition and 2010 follow-up EP The Catalyst garnered five charting singles and over fifty features and four star reviews in national press outlets. The success of their new single “View From The Top” off the upcoming 2012 So Much for Love release landed The Wrecking a placement and on-screen performance in the Showtime series The Big C.

Additionally, the passion of The Wrecking extends beyond music. Since 2010, the band has represented Not For Sale, a new anti-slavery organization that strives to release people from the bondage of modern-day slavery and human trafficking. The mission of the band is not only to bring awareness to the issue, but to encourage individuals to become activists. Since partnering with Not For Sale, The Wrecking has put on three “I Am Not For Sale” tours resulting in raising over 600 Not For Sale partners and over $20,000 in donations.
