The band For King & Country calls for a “Ceasefire” in their new music video from the ‘Ben-Hur’ soundtrack.

“We are so honored that For King & Country have allowed us to use their beautiful song for our film ‘Ben-Hur,'” said executive producer Roma Downey. “Our country today is filled with so much anger, tension and violence and this song and our film spread a message of forgiveness and reconciliation that is needed now more than ever.”

‘Ben-Hur’ is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur. He’s a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala, an officer in the Roman army.  Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves, Judah is forced into slavery.  After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.  The film is based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, “Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ”.  Also starring Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

Check out For King and Country’s powerful music video below. ‘Ben-Hur’ is in theaters August 19, 2016.
