Where Do We Go From Here, the new release from Dove Award-winning and best-selling rock group Pillar, had sales of almost 19,000 units during its first week of release, according to SoundScan. The project entered the Christian Overall sales chart at # 3 and Billboard's "Top 200" albums chart at # 74. In addition to retail success, the debut single from the project, "Bring Me Down," has been one of the most-added songs at the mainstream Active Rock format, and has seen three weeks at # 1 on Christian Rock radio.

"Pillar has delivered what we believe is the best record of their career—it's great to see that their fans agree," said Troy Vest, general manager of Flicker Records. "We're thrilled to see the success the record is having at retail, multiple radio formats and in the press. In one sense, this has been a long time coming, but in another, I feel like we're just getting started."

Where Do We Go >From Here repeats the production team that launched Fireproof to impressive success, with Travis Wyrick and Pillar jointly producing the album, and includes songs entirely written by Pillar. The band recently shot a video for "Bring Me Down" at the historic Tennessee State Penitentiary, which also served as the set for films such as The Green Mile and The Last Castle.  

"This record is a great representation of who we are both as people and as musicians," said Pillar's lead singer, Rob Beckley. "We really poured our hearts and soul into this, and I'm excited to see how our fans have responded. Everyone involved in the release of this project has worked really hard to make it a success, and we're very thankful."

Where Do We Go >From Here is Pillar's first studio project in over two years. Since the release of the band's Dove Award-winning album Fireproof, Pillar has seen unprecedented success in every aspect of their career, including media coverage in Rolling Stone, Spin and Hit Parader, and the first appearance ever by a Christian band on the cover of Radio & Records (R&R) Magazine.  Fireproof produced a Top 40 hit on the R&R Active Rock chart and four #1 Christian Rock singles, including its title track, whose 11-week run at the top tied P.O.D.'s "Alive" for the longest-running #1 Christian Rock single in the history of the format.

In 2004, Pillar has been incessantly active both on the road and at radio. The band will perform mainstage at 23 summer music festivals and recently headlined the 40-city "See Spot Rock" tour, bringing Pillar's total audience to over 2 million people since 2001. This fall, the band will headline the 40-city "Best Buy Presents: Where Do We Go From Here" tour with special guests Project 86 and subseven.
