Alive City, an independent Christian band from Detroit, MI, release their new single 'Lay 'Em Down' on September 4th. "The world is heavy. Sometimes the weight seems unbearable", explains Alive City. "2020 has been a difficult year to say the least. Injustice. Pandemic. Division. It's all too much to carry alone. That's why Jesus said 'Come to me all you who are weary and heavy-burdened, and I will give you rest."
"'Lay 'Em Down' is about being at the end of your effort... at the end of yourself... and leaning into Jesus", they continue. "Your plan is too heavy to carry alone - but the good news is that you don't have to! This is the story of the Gospel, and this is the story of 'Lay 'Em Down'."
