David and Philip Zach started recording The North Star, Remedy Drive’s eighth full-length album release, on top of hotels in the red light districts of Southeast Asia.
“During the day we’d write and record and at night we’d do investigations and casework with The Exodus Road,” a charity committed to rescuing underage girls from sex trafficking. It was hot in the raucous, dirty city, and the air on top of the hotel where the brothers were recording was heavy with monsoon-season heat. Their night had been spent in brothels along the crowded streets below, drinking with underage girls stuck in the trade and bargaining for their prices with pimps. As always, David wore a covert wire to collect evidence while they worked, gathering data that The Exodus Road could use to build a case for the local police.
David, Remedy Drive’s founder and frontman, has been working undercover in brothels for The Exodus Road for five years. His partnership with the charity has led to a dynamic shift in his career as a musician, inspiring albums of advocacy for the enslaved and exiled, including 2014’s Commodity and 2016’s Hope’s Not Giving Up. To date, Remedy Drive’s fans have contributed nearly $350,000 to The Exodus Road, as well as recruiting four new volunteers to do undercover abroad for the charity. David wanted to tell this story more emotionally than he ever had before, incorporating the stories of refugees as well as slaves while singing an anthem for freedom fighters around the world.
