The RIAA Gold certification follows a busy early 2010 that saw the project earn a GRAMMY Award for the band, along with Dove Award nomination for Long Form Music Video of the Year.

ìWeíre definitely both honored and humbled to be receiving this news. It was our desire to give our fans a real sense of what life on the road looks like ñ just being ourselves; sometimes tense, sometimes funny but always being real,î says bassist Tai Anderson.

All tolled, the Live Revelations honor marks the bandís eighth overall Gold certification and second for a video project, with Third Day, Offerings, Offerings II, Come Together, Time, Wherever You Are and the CD/DVD version of Live Wire all hitting Gold status.
