Hawk Nelson gets 'Made'

This week Hawk Nelson, featuring Pearl artist Justin Benner, released their sixth studio album, Made, courtesy of Fair Trade Service Records, to rave reviews and praise from radio, media, and countless notable music publications. The album debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel chart as well as cracking the Top 100 Chart, which recognizes overall album sales across all genres of music.  The instant success of Made comes largely in part to the album’s first single, “Words”, which instantly launched up the Hot AC Chart and continues its tenure at the No. 1 position for the 3rd consecutive week.  “Words” has also found its way to the No. 4 position at AC Indicator, the No. 8 spot at National Christian Audience and in the Top 15 on Soft AC and AC Monitored charts.  The official video for “Words” can be seen and heard below.

Pearl artist, Justin Benner unveiled his gorgeous Masterworks Series drum kit throughout the recording process of Made, as well as in the band’s preliminary tour dates in support of the album.  Justin’s kit, which was designed and constructed to his exact customizations, instantly catches the eye with its stunning Natural Eucalyptus finish that’s beautifully complimented with gold hardware.  Sonically, this kit stands out even more with the brilliant maple/mahogany blend found in the rack tom, floor toms, and bass drum, which emit warm, resonant, and smooth tones, and topped off with the pleasing crack of the primarily-maple 14x5 snare drum.  The full specs of Justin's breathtaking Masterworks Series kit are as follow:
