Modern Day Cure, a worship band from Saginaw, Michigan, have released their new EP 'Promises'.
The band is currently offering listeners a free song download from the project available at moderndaycure.com.
Founded by Aaron Chipp, Tamar Chipp, and Tifani Autry, the heart of Modern Day Cure is to exalt Jesus, share His truth, and see people changed by His power. Their name is inspired by Hebrews 13:8, which states “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” To the band, this truth makes Him the modern day cure. They believe Jesus is the answer the world needs today.
For Modern Day Cure, becoming a band meant starting with a guitarist who never played before, a drummer who hadn’t picked up sticks in years, and a lead singer whose voice was silenced by disappointment. A call from God overshadowed inexperience, rust, and discouragement. Aaron, Tamar, and Tifani, stepped out on faith, obeyed God’s voice and started their journey. A dream was enough to drive them from an unlikely beginning to the release of their first EP in 2012.
Since then, Modern Day Cure has experienced opportunities bigger than themselves. In 2013, they were winners at the Big Ticket Festival’s Indie Band Competition in Gaylord, Mich. and have since shared the stage with Newsboys, Sanctus Real, Disciple, Francesca Battistelli, Kutless, J.J. Weeks Band, All Things New, and Lecrae. In 2014, they were named winners of Smile FM’s Michigan Made Music Contest and also released their first full length album Victorious.
“God put us with the right people we needed for this project,” says Aaron, band leader and primary songwriter for the group. “It’s funny how things work out. I actually met Tyrus and Jay in a lunchroom at a church they were playing at in Michigan. I just happened to be a volunteer for the tour that day. You never know how God will connect you with the people you need, but He’s faithful. That’s been our story ever since we started. That’s why this record means so much to us, it was truly an answer to prayer.”
