For David Zach of Remedy Drive, darkness is not a stranger. For seven years, he has transformed the work of his band to align with the work of justice– specifically, the work of freeing enslaved individuals around the world in partnership with The Exodus Road. Imago Amor is the third album centered on telling the stories he's encountered along the way. The songs capture a defiant hope that resonates both in the work of justice, and in the work of being human and whole in a broken, breaking world. I had the opportunity to catch up with David about what it means to be made in the image of love, how he's navigated the past year of human history, and what it means to practice hope as a sacrament.

Reclaim the Day is a key voice in the new class of faith-based rock and roll.

The band's mission is driven by the power of their own personal experiences with depression, anxiety, and grief, every lyric screaming with the force of the hope they've found. On behalf of Rock On Purpose, Matt Sassano caught up with the band on their new single and what lies ahead.
“Enough” has a different tone compared to Matt Sassano's previous releases. The single portrays a vulnerability not usually displayed in the electro-pop/rock genre.
Amorphous is an experience built on soaring melodies, powerful beats, clever lyrics, and a welcome return to a soundscape shimmering through electronic beds while staying rooted in guitars. Icon For Hire portrays a world where our wounds do not lie in opposition to our strength, suggesting that maybe the two are inextricably linked. Maybe in all the unformed, amorphous moments of our lives, there is grace for all the conflicting truths about ourselves to coexist.
