As part of the release of the album, Lecrae will be celebrating with fans holding release parties in Manchester, UK (9/22), Denver, CO (9/27) and Houston, TX (9/28). Tickets are currently on sale and for more information log onto www.reachrecords.com.  
Lecrae recently released his first mixtape Church Clothes hosted by Don Cannon which featured No Malice (formerly Malice of The Clipes) and production by Grammy award winning producer Bio-1a, 9th Wonder, S-1 and Street Symphony. The mixtape received rave reviews from both critics and fans as well as garnered over 280,000 downloads.
“With the release of ‘Gravity’ I really wanted to expand on my previous work while still making sure to keep it all very authentic to who I am as an artist as well as a person,” states Lecrae. “When I released ‘Church Clothes’ earlier this year, it was the precursor of what’s come with this album. It introduced my music to new audiences, allowing me to impact others.”
This fall, Lecrae will hit the road for the 5th annual Unashamed Tour 2012: Come Alive that will kick off October 4. This 30 city tour will make stops in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago Dallas and Atlanta among others and will feature label mates Trip Lee, Tedashii, Andy Mineo, KB and Pro.
