LONG ISLAND, NY (March 23, 2022) - Pursuing JC, a 10-piece worship band from Long Island NY, today released the acoustic version of its rising single “Stomping On The Devil.”

The song was inspired while Pursuing JC was on tour with the band, Unspoken. A woman with cancer reacted to one of Pursuing JC’s live performances by saying the band’s music gave her the strength to “stomp on the Devil.” Immediately the group was inspired and they got right to work, with the first demo of the song being written by Devin Simpson, one of the vocalists from the group.

“‘Stomping On The Devil’ was the perfect title for a song that inspires listeners to fight the whispers of doubt that prevent us from having a deeper relationship with Christ,” DeRosa said.

The production team at the band’s label Shelter Rock and other band members agreed and “Stomping On The Devil” came to life in both pop and acoustic versions.
Stomping on the Devil
Stomping through the chains that have us bound
‘Til we stand on holy ground we are
Stomping on the Devil
Stomping on him
‘Cause the Devil ain’t got no hold on me

The original version of the song has already received strong, positive feedback. The group expects the same if not even better results from the acoustic version. Listeners can find the anthem-style single today on all major streaming platforms including Pursuing JC’s Spotify profile.
About Pursuing JC
Pursuing JC is a 10-piece worship band from Long Island NY, whose experience ranges from touring with Christian artists such as Unspoken and For King and Country, to church services and events all around the country. The band was formed in 2012, and started as a church worship group comprised of all young kids. Ever since then, new members were picked up along the way, and the band has been constantly growing and evolving into what it is today. Some highlights have been performing at the River Rock Festival in Maine, opening up for Christian recording artists Unspoken on tour, and Worship in the Adirondacks.

Pursuing JC’s first official EP, titled C.R.O.W.N., was a project that was in development for a few years, and when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the band decided to take all that time gained from lost performances and focus on writing original music. The EP’s eclecticism and originality guarantee that there is something for everyone to listen to, whether it’s the vocal prowess and rhythmic intensity of “Stomping on the Devil”, or a more traditional worship song such as “He Is”, which lacks no shortage of inspired melodies and heartfelt lyricism. Pursuing JC’s goal has always been to uplift and inspire a younger generation through the word and music of Christ. Each member has witnessed first-hand the power of God’s love while being in this band, and it is a love that continues to inspire them as they perform and lead worship.
