Redemption recently released the new single ‘I Am The Storm’, the title track from the band’s new album, which will be released March 17th. 2023 via AFM Records. Check out the official lyric video below.

The band comments on ‘I Am The Storm’:

“The life of a human being is many things, among them an ongoing stream of challenges and opportunities. We choose to face them with enthusiasm or indifference, with resistance or resignation. Sometimes we pick our battles, knowing when to push and when to acquiesce.

This song is about perseverance, and daring to spit in the face of the odds.”
