“The dream is to record a collection of melodies that will cut through the darkness like lasers to remind our souls of freedom,” said Remedy Drive frontman David Zach. “We are releasing these songs of freedom to shine a light on the trafficking of human souls.”

They’re calling it “Commodity,” and just as the album is released this September, northeast Colorado will experience these songs of freedom themselves.

Christian rock band Remedy Drive will be featured in a free concert Wednesday, Sept. 10, at Phillips County Event Center in Holyoke. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the concert beginning at 7 p.m. A freewill offering will be taken at the concert.

Jerry Brandt of Holyoke heard about Remedy Drive’s “Commodity” project through his daughter Jes-c French, who saw their Kickstarter efforts online to fund the new album.

Donations from the Brandts’ previous concert funds and from the family were contributed to the counter-trafficking project, resulting in the honor of a hometown concert from Remedy Drive.

“It’s important for the youth of our community to have something to do—more importantly, something good to do,” said Jerry, noting Remedy Drive’s “Commodity” has a good message that will bring awareness to northeast Colorado.
