We will be playing songs off of our past records as well as plenty of new stuff. We are excited to be bringing Manic Drive and Ilia out on the road with us and believe this tour will be a life changing experience for a lot of people! All ages are welcomed. ‘The Anthem Of Angels Tour’ will be the biggest tour we have done to date production wise!”

About Seventh Day Slumber:
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 sugar-coat the struggles of real life. As the band has matured over the last 15 years, they’ve faced newfound challenges head on, and today their perspective and relevancy are as strong as ever, and their anthems of praise are even more profound.
About Manic Drive:
Manic Drive released their latest project, EPIC, produced by Rob Wells
(Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Adam Lambert, Miranda Cosgrove) in 2011. The band’s previous three albums, Blue, Reason for Motion and Reset & Rewind have landed them Billboard Top 10 & 20 singles on CHR & Christian Rock Radio. The band members, Shawn Cavallo, Keith Comer and Michael Cavallo have made sacrifices to pursue God’s call on their lives. Their life experience, spiritual maturity and ministry have opened doors to speak into the lives of their own generation and that is perhaps the most defining characteristic of this group of guys.
About Ilia:
Jessica Frizzell, Melissa Newman and Brittney Mosher make up the band Ilia. Ilia was the highest charting indie band in Christian Rock radio last year, with over 180 shows played. The band’s quick shot up the rankings have lead them to playing mega festivals like Soulfest, Cornerstone, Lifelight, and more. The meaning behind Ilia is a response to what we see, feel and perceive around us. The band’s passion is to see people changed. They write, perform and connect so that maybe it will speak to audiences in some way that would invoke change, hope, action or give the opportunity to just have fun and not worry about keeping a guard up.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
