The highly-anticipated new project from Big Daddy Weave, When The Light Comes (Curb | Word Entertainment) drops today. With a successful album kick-off, thanks in part to its first single, "Alive," hitting No. 1 at radio, the launch of lead vocalist Mike Weaver's book, I Am Redeemed, the debut of their own reality show on TBN, and a headlining tour that just opened last night, the light is certainly shining for the members of Big Daddy Weave.
Each of the twelve songs found on When the Light Comes, the band's ninth studio project, encompasses a deep and personal faith in Jesus. Produced by the band's guitarist Jeremy Redmon, all five band members - Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Joe Shirk, Brian Beihl, and Redmon - have individually learned what it means to truly live by faith and to trust in a God who makes all things new, as the inspirational and uplifting themes found in the group's music were desperately needed by the members themselves. I nstead of avoiding the painful truth of their struggles over the past three years, the band pushed themselves into all of the songs and during that process, an underlying current of rejoicing broke through. As bassist Jay Weaver puts it, "Only Jesus can turn sorrow into joy."
With upcoming coverage about the band and their new music to be featured in CCM Magazine, Worship Musician, Worship Leader, Overflow's Beyond The Music Podcast, The World And Everything In It podcast, Song Revolution, Today's Christian Entertainment, and more.
Big Daddy Weave's headlining "The Alive Tour" just kicked off last night in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and is slated to run through this fall. The tour, which has the band performing many of their new songs as well as previous hits and fan favorites, is the final leg of their year-long "The Alive Tour."
