and Single Continues to Climb the Charts; Hawk Nelson on Tour with Sanctus 

NASHVILLE, TN…9/13/2004…Flashing back to 1965, Tooth and Nail Records’ band 
Hawk Nelson recently returned from the taping of their national television 
debut for the NBC hit show, American Dreams, set to air October 10, 2004. 
The members of the band emulated legendary rock band, The Who, singing “My 
Generation.” In addition to portraying The Who, Hawk Nelson also recorded 
their version of “My Generation,” which will be available on the show’s 
soundtrack. “Just when you think you couldn’t be happier living a simple 
life, playing shows, trying to make a living for yourself, someone calls and 
asks you to re-enact a rock legend on American Dreams,” states lead vocalist 
Jason Dunn. “When we arrived on the set, it was so cool! Everyone was 
walking around like it was 1965.”

The two-time Emmy winning drama features contemporary musicians as guest 
stars portraying 1960s icons on “American Bandstand.” Last season’s guest 
stars included Kelly Clarkson (as Brenda Lee), Nick Lachey (as Tom Jones), 
Alicia Keys (as Fontella Bass), and Hilary and Haylie Duff (as The 

Since their debut release, Letters to the President, hit the streets July 
13, Hawk Nelson has had much radio success and media acclaim. Currently, 
their single “Every Little Thing” is at #2 on the Christian Rock chart and 
at #20 with a bullet on CHR.   Here’s what has been said about this hot new 

“Letters to the President proves to be a well-executed, well-produced label 
debut.  Also impressive is the variety of hooky anthems side-by-side with 
ballads and tongue-twisting fast punk songs…. Hawk Nelson does it right.  If 
somebody has to take Simple Plan’s place as pop-punk radio darlings, it 
should be these guys.” -HM Magazine “…songs like “California,” “Every Little 
Thing,” “From Underneath” and the piano ballad “36 Days” brim with a 
creative energy that shows promise.  Intelligent lyrics also give Letters a 
little more to say than a typical summer fare.” -Seven Ball Magazine “In 
short, right out of the gate they’re probably the most to-the-moment 
sounding punk band on the Christian scene.  Lead vocalist Jason Dunn sounds 
like he was born to sing these songs.  Letters to the President does embrace 
its roots with gusto, and the band manages to package it in a way that is 
undeniable appealing.” -CMCentral.com

Hawk Nelson will be hitting the road beginning September 24 with Sanctus 
Real on their fall tour.  They will be performing in 30 markets across the 
nation through the end of October.  The tour will include Seven Places and 
Ever Stays Red.   For more information on Hawk Nelson please visit
