JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A tour bus rolled into Jonesboro Thursday morning containing members of a band recognized for having four straight Top Five singles in their career.

Unspoken released their debut song in 2012 and have toured alongside groups like Big Daddy Weave.

"We heard that you have a treasure here in the Christian music world, Zach Williams," Chad Mattson, lead singer for Unspoken said. "We are playing at his high school. So it's pretty wonderful. We are excited for him."

Unspoken will perform, as part of their Follow Through Tour, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, at Westside High School's Fine Arts Center.

"We literally went to bed at a Walmart parking lot in Springhill, Tennessee, and woke up here," said Mike Gomez, Unspoken band member.

"We picked a good spot to be today because the weather is beautiful," Mattson added.

The group travels extensively. Their next stop is Sugar Land, Texas. The band members say they feel strongly about the Christian message their songs share.

"We tend to write songs that we need to hear ourselves. So our listeners can always expect something very honest," Gomez said. "We always say if it touches me or if it touches a struggle, it will relate to many people because we are all related one way or another. When we write a song, we just want straight up honesty—whether it's our thankfulness to God or struggles to try to believe why tragedies happen."

"Lots of different places we draw our inspiration and draw our musical influences," Mattson said. "That's what's awesome about sharing it together."

Tickets for the Follow Through Tour featuring Carrollton and special guest, Tyrus Morgan, are $15 for general admission, $25 for a meet & greet with premier seating.
