CCM News: Seventh Day Slumber, Crowder, Lecrae, Tori Kelly

Seventh Day Slumber’s ‘Found’ Out Today

Found, the anticipated new album from Seventh Day Slumber, is out today (July 28). The album’s title-cut and lead single—penned by Seventh Day Slumber’s Joseph Rojas and Jeremy Holderfield with acclaimed singer/songwriter Daniel Dos has been serviced to Christian radio.

Produced by Holderfield, Found (VSR Music Group/Capitol Christian Distribution) features 10 new tracks showcasing the band’s musical breadth, from hard rock anthems to melodic pop ballads. The project was largely inspired following a season of burnout and depression band founder and frontman Rojas faced.

“… four years ago I came to a place where I just got depressed,” Rojas recently told Western New York’s Niagara Frontier Publications. “… I never lost my passion for ministry, or anything like that, but I just couldn’t make myself be happy.… I just decided to write about it. I decided to just put my heart and my soul into these lyrics…. That’s what this record, Found, is about.”
