Major plans are ahead in the coming months for Big Daddy Weave. They are performing many of the new songs as well as their previous hits and fan favorites on their headlining run of "The Alive Tour." The first leg of the tour kicked off this past spring and is continuing across the country on its second leg now through November 24, 2019. The most updated tour schedule can be found here.
Additionally, Mike Weaver along with Jim Scherer, the band's manager, penned the book I Am Redeemed (Hachette Book Group). Releasing September 3rd, the book is now available for pre-order. The band will also be featured in an upcoming reality series this fall. Further details will be announced.
The songs found on When the Light Comes all encompass a deep and personal faith in Jesus. Yet while it’s one thing to sing about trusting God in the midst of trials, the five members of Big Daddy Weave - Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Jeremy Redmon, Joe Shirk, and Brian Beihl - have each learned what it means to truly live by faith and to trust in a God who makes all things new.
“When we were working on songs for this new record,” shares lead singer Mike Weaver, “they were all written from a place of processing grief and sorrow. We were in a season of serious hurting.” The list of trials the band was going through, especially over the past three years, was nearly overwhelming. Instead of avoiding the painful truth of their struggles, the band pushed themselves to put it all into the songs and an underlying current of rejoicing broke through. As bassist Jay Weaver puts it, “Only Jesus can turn sorrow into joy.”
Produced by the band's guitarist Jeremy Redmon, When the Light Comes became a twelve-song collection of testimonies and joyous anthems, from the debut "Alive" that calls the listener forth to a brighter day and a faith that doesn’t disappoint, to “This Is What We Live For,” which speaks about the very real places we find ourselves, all the while proclaiming who God is and that He’s the one doing all that’s good in the world.
“These songs are where we’ve been and where we’re heading. With the help of Jesus, we’re heading to joyful times,” says Beihl.
