Rock veterans Seventh Day Slumber release their first album in two years


VSR MUSIC GROUP have released the 11th studio album, and their first two years, by veteran rockers Seventh Day Slumber. Talking about the album's title track lead singer Joseph Rojas said, "'Found' came from the heart and hits me every time I perform it. The truth is, I was singing every night on stages all over the country ministering to others but inside I felt empty. I poured myself out but never filled backup. I was too ashamed to tell my pastors how empty and depressed I was feeling and I ran to things that left me emptier than before. Food became an addiction and I isolated myself in embarrassment of the weight I had gained. I came to realise I was so empty because I wasn't allowing myself to rest in him. As St Augustine said, 'You have made us for yourself Lord and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you'. When you lose that closeness with God, nothing you have or accomplish will fulfil you. It's the love, grace and mercy of Jesus that has kept me all these years, from delivering me from a $400 per day cocaine addiction to my present situation. He is faithful." CR
