Christian rock frontman David Zach of the band Remedy Drive is gearing up to release the band’s third album that’s being sold to counter the human-trafficking industry.
Zach has been working to free victims ensnared in sex-slavery for seven years and is using the band’s music to “shine a light on injustice and to rally a hopeful community under the banner of freedom,” the band’s Kickstarters page reveals.
His band Remedy Drive raised over $37,800 this week for their third project that’s being backed by more than 300 people who also want to raise awareness about human trafficking.
“I just got home from a 10-day trip overseas helping to spy on an international trafficking ring,” Zach told The Christian Post on Thursday.
Over the past six years, Zach has spent much of his time undercover in brothels and red-light districts searching for evidence of sex trafficking. Zach also teamed up with Matt Parker, founder of the anti-human trafficking organization The Exodus Road, and together they use covert gear to capture evidence of human trafficking.
The men were able to share their findings with authorities who then raided the brothels and trafficking locations. The work of The Exodus Road has led to 1,355 rescues and 660 arrests to date. In total, The Exodus Road has 69 operatives working in four countries.
“I’m going to continue to go overseas to join our teams in rescue operations, making music to help fund rescue operations, buying T-shirts and merchandise to help fund restoration of survivors, and posting podcasts to tell the stories of brave women and men doing front line work,” he said.
