Black Lives Matter
We've been quiet this last week or so. It doesn't feel right to be promoting music in this current situation. The sound of rage, despair and hopelessness across the globe is almost deafening.
Today is another "bandcamp day" where the platform waive their fee. A brilliant gesture in support of independent labels and artists.
But now is not about listening to music. Now is about listening to the voices of those that so desperately want and need to be heard.
On that note, we've decided to mark today with this eight minutes and forty six seconds of silence.
We want to listen. We want to learn.
This silence will always be here. It will never be deleted. It's our way of saying that we stand in solidarity. All money from this 'release' will be donated to the link below. Digital download comes with a hidden unreleased 10 minute jam from the Fragile X "The Butterfly Effect" sessions.
The donation is split between more than 70 community bail funds, mutual aid funds and racial justice organisers.
No matter how big or small we accumulate the plan is to donate on the first Sunday of every month from here on in starting on Sunday 7th June.
*NOTE* We will be covering the future PayPal and bandcamp fees from any purchases from our own funds.
