Last month, Seventh Day Slumber released their eighth studio album The Anthem of Angels to much acclaim along with their successful “Small Town America Tour.” The album debuted at the iTunes Top Christian Albums chart at No. 4. In addition the Rock single, “Never Too Far Gone” is currently in the Top 20.

Since 2005 when Seventh Day Slumber signed to BEC Recordings, they have not only found chart success and a string of top ten singles, they’ve seen the power of music and the gospel to change lives. Seventh Day Slumber took their full rock worship experience on the road this fall headlining their tour.

On the “Small Town America” tour, 2500 people gave their life to Christ with attendance ranging from 300-1000 each night from September through November.  With the response to this tour, the band is looking to make this tour an annual event. This spring Seventh Day Slumber will begin the “The Anthem Of Angels Tour” featuring Manic Drive and Ilia. Details on this tour will follow soon.

Here are what media outlets have to say about The Anthem of Angels:
“Whether talking about struggling to hear the voice of God or striving to find peace amongst stress, the cross section between driving modern rockers and booming ballads is sure to hit the spot.”
-CCM Magazine

“The Anthem of Angels is an album of searching, of honesty, and of worship. The seamless blending of their gritty roots and heartfelt worship lyrics is a feat few bands have accomplished. This album is well worth looking into for fans of either worship or harder rock.”
– New Release Tuesday

“The Anthem of Angels” album is huge hooks, driving drums, monster melodies, and honest lyrics. You need music to march to….march to the beat of Seventh Day Slumber.”

“I cannot say it enough – The Anthem of Angels is a phenomenal album! It’s not very often we hear a rock album that keeps the focus on God while delivering awesome, rocking tracks.”
-Jay’s Musik Blog
