REMEDY DRIVE BOWS MISSION-MINDED "COMMODITY" SEPTEMBER 23RD by Turning Point Media on 2014-09-18 11:35:02
Nashville, Tenn. — Acclaimed Dove Award-nominated rockers Remedy Drive are set to bow Commodity, their 10th studio recording and most important project to date, on iTunes September 23. Featuring 12 selections written or co-penned by group founder and frontman David Zach—all singularly showcasing the band’s commitment to combat international human trafficking—the project was produced by Zach's brother, Philip Zach.
The title-cut and debut single, a stirring anti-slavery anthem, recently spent seven weeks atop the BDS Christian Rock chart, marking the longest charting #1 rock hit in Remedy Drive’s career.
Inspired by David Zach’s trips to Southeast Asia working alongside The Exodus Road—a nonprofit coalition fighting sex slavery through covert investigation and rescue—additional highlights of Commodity include “Dear Life,” “Take Cover,” “Love Is Our Weapon,” and “When A Soul’s Set Free,” among others.
“This album is dedicated to the children being taken against their will and forced to fight as child soldiers or to sell their bodies in the red light districts around the world,” says David Zach. “It’s also dedicated to the undercover operatives of The Exodus Road and the growing number of ordinary people who are joining forces to combat the sale of human beings. We hope these songs of freedom will add to the soundtrack of the resistance.”
Comprised of founder and lead vocalist David Zach, along with guitarist Dave Mohr, bassist Corey Horn, and drummer Tim Buell, Remedy Drive has garnered 10 Top 20 singles and released nine critically-acclaimed recordings since its inception in 1998. “Resuscitate Me,” from the band’s 2012 release, Resuscitate, spent five weeks atop the Christian Rock chart and was nominated for a 2013 GMA Dove Award for Rock Song of the Year. In addition, “Daylight” was featured in the recent motion picture “The Perfect Summer,” while music from Remedy Drive has been utilized on NBC, SpeedTV and VH1. The band has toured with such artists as MercyMe, David Crowder Band, Family Force 5 and The Digital Age, among others.
