Big Daddy Weave new album

Leading up to the debut of When The Light Comes, the band’s upcoming headlining tour is also getting underway, along with Mike Weaver’s book release, and a new eight-episode TV reality series about the band set to air on TBN this fall. Further details are below.

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.

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. During that process, an underlying current of rejoicing broke through. As bassist Jay Weaver puts it, “Only Jesus can turn sorrow into joy.”

Track listing:
This Is What We Live For
Turn On The Light
I Know
What I’ve Got
The Name Of Jesus
I Want To Tell The World
Your Love Changes Everything
Walking In The Light Of Your Love
All Things New

Big Daddy Weave will headline “The Alive Tour” this fall, which kicks off Sept. 12 in Tulsa, OK. The band will perform many of their new songs as well as previous hits and fan favorites. Running through November 24, this is the final leg of their year-long “Alive Tour.” The most updated tour schedule can be found here
