Seventh Day Slumber recently wrapped up their 34 city “Freedom to Worship Tour,” a seemingly impossible feat during a global pandemic, but their mission and message was clear: bringing people hope and light in a time where that is in dire supply.
I was able to attend three dates on this tour, which was a blessing in of itself to be able to enjoy an in-person, live concert. SDS did some of the shows acoustic and others with full production, with pyro and a huge LED wall from Refresh LED. No matter the method, the message was the same. The acoustic show I attended was more of a “writer’s round” style, where you got to hear the inspiration of the songs before each one, and the stories behind the songs. The full production shows were just as powerful. The videos on the LED wall furthered the message of the lyrics. They also never ended a show without helping children in need through ChildFund.
The set list was a blend of new tracks off their new worship album Unseen: The Lion & The Lamb and other tracks off their other albums. Since this was a worship tour, most of the set list was compose of worship albums, but the signature Seventh Day Slumber rock flair was definitely present, especially in the full production shows.
What came through clearest was the passion in which the members of SDS played and believed in the message of hope that they were singing about, and the presentation of a gospel and a savior who was there for you in every city they stopped in.
Seventh Day Slumber isn’t take a break. They headed right back on on the Freedom to Rock Tour, joined by The Protest and RLNT. Now they’re embarking on The Recovery Tour. Keep and eye on the band’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates on the dates and where you can catch them in person!
