We’ve teamed up with Memphis, TN hard rockers Devour the Day to bring you the exclusive song premiere for “Golden City”, the band’s new single from their upcoming album S.O.A.R.. The song offers a scathing look at the concept of buying your way into heaven rather than earning it through good deeds.
Vocalist/guitarist Blake Allison tells BD:
‘Golden City’ speaks specifically about a promised nirvana or paradise that is offered with the sacrifice of money in the Christian community. The rules of getting into an eternal city of light are available at a bargain price. A good example is someone like Joel Osteen, a mass manipulator with a television camera and and distorted perspective of an old book. Something should be said about it in hopes that those oppressed by this spiritual fairy tale, especially young people, hear that their doubts about this cycle are valid and relatable.
