Electrifying Christian rock band Silverline will perform live in concert on the campus of Bluefield College, Thursday, March 3 at 7 p.m. in Harman Chapel.
As part of a 25-city journey, which includes stops in Orlando, Baltimore, Topeka and Bluefield, Silverline’s “Voices in the Night Tour” will also feature the bands I Am Empire, Tooth and Nail, and Bright Light Parade.
“We are excited to be hitting the road with these bands,” said Silverline frontman Ryan Edberg. “This is a solid line up and should be a fun tour. If you have not seen these bands live, then this will be something you’ll want to catch.”
Following up the single that hit number two on rock radio this past fall, Silverline’s “Voices in the Night Tour” is designed to promote the group’s powerful and musically ambitious sophomore CD, which speaks about being a light in the darkness, standing up for truth in a dark world, and not holding back when darkness surrounds you.
“We as Christians need to be the light, but so often we live in fear instead of faith,” said Edberg, a lead vocalist. “‘Voices in the Night’ is our anthem to try to rally Christians together to stand for truth.”
Performing and ministering to young people in more than 43 states and sharing the stage with well-known bands such as Red, Brian “Head” Welch, Disciple, P.O.D., Hawk Nelson, Newsboys, Sanctus Real, and Thousand Foot Krutch, Silverline’s live show is said to be “electric” with thick guitars, explosive drums, and soaring melodies. Even more engaging are the band’s relevant, thought-provoking, uncompromising lyrics delivered with the deepest of passion.
“When it comes down to it, Silverline is around to encourage and build up, but also to stand up for holiness and raise the standard back in Christianity,” said Edberg. “I think you’re either doing what God has called you to do or you’re wasting your time.”
The primary songwriter for the group, Edberg said Silverline’s music is designed to encourage, promote hope and truth, “get people fired up about God,” and “move people closer to God.” The band’s hit list includes “Last One Standing,” “Shine a Light” and “Voices in the Night,” as well as “Get it Right” from their debut CD.
“Whatever it is that you’re going against has already been defeated on the cross through Jesus,” said Edberg. “You hear people say ‘in the name of Jesus’ so much without faith or a realization of the power that is really there.”
Silverline’s show at Bluefield College will begin at 7 p.m. on March 3. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission for the event will be $3 at the door. For more information, email [email protected].
