SEVENTH DAY SLUMBER: The Band & Ministry That’s Never Slowing Down

Is it possible to keep your testimony fresh after telling it night after night on tour in different cities – in front of different crowds – before thousands of people? Listen in now as founder/lead singer of Seventh Day Slumber, Joseph Rojas, shares his testimony of deliverance from a $400 a day cocaine habit – through the prayers of his Mom – and how that testimony stays fresh after two decades of ministry through this iconic Christian band.

Closer To Chaos, the much anticipated new studio recording released May 31 on RockFest Records—the groundbreaking label founded by Seventh Day Slumber frontman Rojas last year—Closer To Chaos finds the group returning to their melodic rock roots with a collection of 10 brand new songs.

Produced by Seventh Day Slumber’s Jeremy Holderfield, with three selections co-produced and co-written by Disciple’s Josiah Prince, Closer To Chaos tackles a range of issues, including emotional trauma, self-worth and sobriety, among other topics.

It became obvious in our conversation that this difficult yet beautiful story of redemption had a lot of twists and turns, in retrospect, but that it’s a story that is still being written as Joe’s teenage son, Blaise, is now part of the band and helping live out his Dad’s legacy in rock and roll evangelism that’s reaching even younger generations.
