Remedy Drive is making a third album in a trilogy of counter trafficking albums to shine a light on slavery and injustice. The band has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund it, with plans to release digital EP's of 3 to 4 songs leading up to the summer 2020 album release.

On the campaign page, the band writes:

"We’ve been fighting against slavery for 7 years now - using melodies to shine a light on injustice and to rally a hopeful community under the banner of freedom. While elevating the work of the counter trafficking organization The Exodus Road. Our fanbase and community has contributed several hundred dollars of support to help The Exodus Road rescue survivors of trafficking.

I’m excited about this new album that we’re working on. We need your help to finish it We started backstage at festivals in our van which we converted into a studio, my brother Philip’s recording studio and we will come to your living room. Philip and I will record during the day and do a concert at night for you and whoever you’d like to invite - your space will be part of this album - third album in a trilogy of counter trafficking albums.

I’ve been doing undercover work with The Exodus Road for 6 years now. I’ve been on 12 or 13 deployments. We go into red-light districts - we use spy gear to find evidence of sex trafficking and then we partner with local authorities to make raids against these punks that are selling our daughters and our sons - raids that result in freedom for the survivors and then dismantling these criminal networks to send a message to traffickers that someone is watching. The Exodus Road has rescued 1400+ survivors and helped to arrest 600+ traffickers.

We don’t have a record label. We don’t take money from The Exodus Road. This is how we fund our music. When you help make this next chapter possible you’re funding everything that comes with this chapter. We’re going to do a podcast where we talk to ordinary people who have put themselves in extraordinary situations in the arena of freedom and justice and mercy and compassion

To tell these stories

To keep the darkness at bay

To tear a little corner off the darkness

We’re making all our band’s merchandise by organizations that rehabilitate survivors of trafficking. My family saw our lyric being screen printed on shirts that have been cut and sown by survivors of trafficking by organizations that are committed to rehabilitating these precious girls and boys. Women that have been rescued with art therapy, with trauma therapy and transitional employment. My family is going to continue to curate these items - boho pants, elephant pants, kimonos, bracelets, necklaces, purses and elephant neck pillows.  Perfect gifts for someone you love - a tangible gift that tells the story and takes you right there to the front lines (if you order the download only version of the new record you can get these items shipped in time for Christmas 2019).

Thank you for singing our songs with us. We’re going to keep on going forward, continue to sing these melodies of hope and freedom at 110dB in the face of fear and in the face of apathy. We want you to sing these songs with us."
