Seventh Day Slumber has launched a GoFundMe campaign to invite fans to participate in putting on a free concert in the band's current hometown of Spring Hill, Tenn.
"My wife and I are already committed to paying all of the bands, lights, sound, etc," lead singer Joseph Rojas shared on Facebook. "[We] have started a go fund me for people who want to help us with this cost. We could sure use some help."
Seventh Day Slumber have long been vocal about issues of suicide, depression and addiction, matters close to Rojas's heart as he first encountered Jesus after nearly dying of a drug overdose. City Rockfest Tour features Disciple, Spoken, Wolves at the Gate, Random Hero, As We Ascend and The Protest, all bands who also are honed in on bringing the hope of Christ to those in the darkest places.
Expanding further on the GoFundMe page, Joseph Rojas shared. "It broke my heart to hear about another suicide in the very town I live in... This community is filled with people who look and act like everything is great. The truth is, it's not. I wanted to put on a free event and bring hope to people who so desperately need it."
Spring Hill is a small town just south of Nashville, Tenn. The concert is one of two "mega shows" on the City Rockfest tour, events that will feature all of the bands from both the first and second legs of the tour. If you want to attend the event, you can find out more on the Facebook event page. To be a part of Seventh Day Slumber's ministry and supporting the Rojas's vision, you can contribute and share the GoFundMe page.
