NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Boasting a who’s who of Christian rock's biggest acts, the City RockFest Tour is set to launch its fifth year in February as Christian music’s top multi-artist hard rock outing. Industry leaders and tour founders Seventh Day Slumber anchor the 2019 lineup, which brings metalcore favorites Righteous Vendetta to the RockFest stage for the first time. In addition, the tour will showcase Billboard hitmakers Random Hero, The Protest and Zahna, as well as metalcore trio Amongst The Giants. 

 
Presented by ChildFund International, the City RockFest Tour kicks-off February 21 in West Dundee, Illinois, and will visit more than 20 markets across the country, including Memphis; Boise, Idaho; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Paris, Texas; Colchester, Connecticut and Englewood, Florida, among other cities. 
 
“It’s both humbling and amazing to realize the City RockFest Tour has been going strong for five years now,” said tour founder and Seventh Day Slumber frontman Joseph Rojas. “Our tour mates are like family, and we have a blast each night. There’s no place I’d rather be than alongside these incredible artists sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ to a hurting world.”    
 
A consistent force on Christian CHR and rock radio, Dove Award-winning Seventh Day Slumber has sold a combined total of nearly 500,000 units to date, landing two Billboard #1 albums, five #1 singles and 14 Top 10 hits in a career spanning 20 years. Comprised of Joseph Rojas (lead vocals/guitar), Jeremy Holderfield (guitar), Blaise Rojas (drums) and Ken Reed (bass), the band’s signature songs include “Oceans From The Rain,” “Inside Out,” "Caroline," "Finally Awake" and "Wasted Life." Their 2017 album release, Found, debuted at #25 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and #3 on Nielsen Christian SoundScan’s Rock/Alternative chart. 
 
Seventh Day Slumber’s Joseph Rojas, creator of the City RockFest, Summer RockFest and Small Town America tours, is also the founder and president of Nashville Label Group. The company’s RockFest Records imprint is home to some of the top names in Christian hard music, including Seventh Day Slumber, Random Hero, The Protest, Zahna, The Persuaded and Amongst The Giants.
