Tenth Avenue North’s sophomore album , The Light Meets the Dark, debuts on top of the charts.

The new album of Tenth Avenue North  success has been on the rise since it hit the shelves on May 11. It debuted as No. 1 on the Neilsen Christian Soundscan Chart and No. 15 on the Billboard Top 200. Its single “Healing Begins” has also hit the top 10 on Four Billboard Christian Radio Charts. The album also reached No. 1 on the Christian Album Chart on both iTunes and AmazonMP3 and Top 5 on iTunes overall chart.

The album’s messages touches on the fear of exposing secrets and that can cripple us. It begs the question, ‘if you believe that, let people see how messed up you are. Are you ready to confess? Are you ready to have all your masks taken away?’

The band is comprised of lead vocalist/acoustic guitarist Mike Donehey, electric guitarist/background vocalist Jeff Owen, and drummer Jason Jamison. Their heavy touring and first album put them on the map. This new album has been a huge success reaching the top of many music charts, and they plan to make many more albums.

“It’s been kind of crazy I guess when you think about it,” says Donehey. “In a lot of ways, we don’t feel like anything has changed. When we get up on a stage, more people are there to see us play and more people are familiar with the songs, but the objective really hasn’t changed. The objective is for people to encounter truth and be changed.”

The list of songs in the new album include

1. Healing Begins
2. Strong Enough To Save
3. You Are More
4. The Truth Is Who You Are
5. All The Pretty Things
6. Any Other Way
7. On And On
8. Hearts Safe (A Better Way)
9. House of Mirrors
10. Empty My Hands
11. Oh My Dear

Both albums, Over and Underneath  and The Light Meets the Dark , are available in stores and online. They are on sale for $9.99 on the band website, The website also offers information about band bio and tour dates.
