Remedy Drive, originally a brother’s band out of Omaha, Neb., attracted a lot of early national attention: charting a No. 1 radio hit, receiving several Dove Award nominations and touring with the likes of David Crowder Band and MercyMe. That all seemed to fall apart when three of them decided life on the road was more than they could balance with family and life requirements. They encouraged remaining brother and frontman David Zach to keep going. Enter three diverse new members, a new extended play recording issued in 2011 that contained “some of the band’s best songs to date,” according to JesusFreakHideout.com, and a new record deal with Centricity Music, and Remedy Drive is again off to the races.
The new project is a mix of pop and hard rock, covering roaring guitar grunge to melodic keys and touching almost everything in between. Excellent musicianship shines through the entire record. Take a look at their online video “Resuscitate Me” and get a feel for the kind of stage energy these guys generate. Amazing.
This new project is beautifully layered, well recorded and full of relevant lyrics and moving songs. We should expect to see a lot more from these guys.
