Seventh Day Slumber is a Christian rock band from Dallas, Texas formed in 1996. Having gone through several lineup changes, current band members include Joseph Rojas (vocals/guitar), Jeremy Holderfield (guitar), Jamie Davis (drums) and Talia Haughn (bass). The band's name comes from the Bible in Genesis 2:2 where on the seventh day, after creating the universe, God rested.

The band formed in 1996 by Rojas and guitarist Evan Weatherford, bassist Joshua Schwartz and drummer Adam Witte and was later signed to BEC Recordings. After signing to the Afinia label, the group issued “Matthew Twenty-Five” three years later. Their second album “Freedom From Human Regulations” was also released on an independent label before they made their major-label debut with “Picking Up the Pieces” in 2003.

Seventh Day Slumber released “Once Upon a Shattered Life” in 2005 which spawned their hit singles “Caroline” and “Oceans from the Rain.” The album hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and #26 on the Top Christian Albums chart.

After re-releasing “Picking Up the Pieces” that same year, they released “Finally Awake” in 2007. It peaked at #16 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart. The Spanish-language album “Rescátame” contained re-recordings of previous songs and it won the 2009 Dove Award for Spanish Language Album of the Year at the 40th GMA Dove Awards.

It was followed by “Take Everything,” an album of new arrangements of Christian worship songs. The album peaked at #141 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and #11 on the Top Christian Albums chart.

“The Anthem of Angels” was released in November 2011 and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and #28 on the Top Christian Albums chart.
