Jonathan Jackson + Enation will release their fourth studio album Anthems For The Apocalypse, co-produced by Greg Archilla, on July 14 via their own label, Hilasterion Records (distributed through Sony). The band will spend their album release day by doing two in store signings in Nashville. One is at the Country Music Hall Of Fame at 2:00pm and the other is at Barnes & Noble Cool Springs in Brentwood at 6:30pm.

Jonathan Jackson + Enation, originally from the Northwest, now call Nashville home. Jackson currently stars as “Avery Barkley” in the prime time drama Nashville, now in its fifth season, which airs Thursdays on CMT. He's a five-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning actor for his role in General Hospital.

Following Jackson’s solo dates with the cast of Nashville summer tour, Jonathan Jackson + Enation will also return to the road this summer playing select dates beginning Aug. 11 in Alabama (see tour dates below).

Their music video for “Revolution Of The Heart” recently premiered on CMT - Watch it HERE and was added to MTV Hits.

“It’s the most anti-political, political song I’ve ever written,” says Jonathan Jackson about “Revolution Of The Heart.” There certainly are good revolutions throughout history but many ended up being terrible and destructive, even when there were good intentions involved. Our world is more divided than ever it seems and the political climate is driving deeper wedges in society. Ultimately, politics can only offer some of the answers we're looking for. The deeper longing that I'm "marching for" personally is a revolution of the heart. It's an inner revolution. We need to first love each other and remember our common humanity. Then we can approach politics and work towards important solutions.”

The band also recently performed in front of over 300,000 at the 101st Indianapolis 500 pre-race festivities, performing on a specially designed rolling stage on the 2.5 mile race track. The stage stopped in Turns 1, 2 and 4 for performances from the group.

In 2014, Jonathan Jackson + Enation released Radio Cinematic, garnering them numerous radio and TV appearances including live performances on ABC’s The View and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live. The single "Everything Is Possible" climbed the Hot AC charts to #43 and helped propel the band's Radio Cinematic US Summer Tour, by playing to sold out audiences and earning high praises from critics and fans.

2016's Blame-Shifter EP debuted at #22 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart while their Live DVD, Jonathan Jackson + Enation: Live from Nashville debuted at #9 on the Billboard Music Video chart.
