Formed in early 2016, RELENT released their first single, “Rise” in 2019. The track quickly became a fan favorite and set the scene for the release of the group’s 2020 debut, Heart Attack. With a unique, in-your-face style that is often compared to musical giants such as P.O.D., Sevendust, Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin, many fans find it hard to believe this fierce quintet proudly wears the “Christian band” tag. “Ghost” is a prime example of RELENT’s ability to create aggressive music with a positive, spiritual message.
“In a time where demonology is accepted and welcomed with open arms, ‘Ghost’ reminds us of the one spiritual force that is undefeated and all-powerful,” the band says. “In the midst of the darkest times this world has ever seen, God’s voice still speaks to us, guiding us through the difficulty of life. He gives us strength we would never have on our own and empowers us to live life as conquerors instead of victims.”
RELENT, who just wrapped up the Summer Slam Tour with Seventh Day Slumber and GFM, has built a strong following through passionate, intense live performances. Because of their pasts involving drug addictions and rough lifestyles, the members of RELENT are also intensely dedicated to reaching people who struggle with similar addictions.
Stay tuned for more new music, coming this fall via Rockfest Records.
