Seventh Day Slumber
Seventh Day Slumber is a Christian rock band from Dallas, Texas formed in 1996. They were an independent band for five years until signed to BEC Records in 2005.
Lead singer Joseph Rojas tried to commit suicide following a cocaine binge, and became a Christian while being taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Following his conversion, Rojas teamed with guitarist Evan Weatherford, bassist Joshua Schwartz and drummer Adam Witte. After signing to the Afinia label the group issued Matthew Twenty-Five three years later. Their second album Freedom From Human Regulations was also released on an independent album before they made their major-label debut with Picking Up the Pieces in 2003.
Seventh Day Slumber released Once Upon a Shattered Life in 2005 which spanned their hit singles "Caroline" and "Oceans from the Rain". The album hit No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 26 on the Top Christian Albums chart. After re-releasing Picking Up the Pieces that same year, they released Finally Awake in 2007. It peaked at No. 16 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart. The Spanish-language album Rescátame contained re-recordings of previous songs and it won the 2009 Dove Award for Spanish Language Album of the Year at the 40th GMA Dove Awards. It was followed by Take Everything, an album of new arrangements of Christian music worship songs. The album peaked at No. 141 on the Billboard 200 and No. 11 on the Top Christian Albums charts.
Seventh Day Slumber released their eighth studio album The Anthem of Angels to much acclaim in 2011. The album debuted at the iTunes Top Christian Albums chart at No. 4. Honesty and candor have been trademarks of frontman Joseph Rojas’s path from the depths of a cocaine-fueled suicide attempt through miraculous salvation in the back of an ambulance to the top of the Christian music charts. Seventh Day Slumber has long been heralded as a band that refuses to sugarcoat the struggles of real life. As the band has matured over the last 19 years, they’ve faced new-found challenges head on, and today their perspective and relevancy are as strong as ever, and their anthems of praise are even more profound.
