Sunn O))) has released three Life Metal demos that will only be available today. All three demos will benefit ACTBLUE’s campaign, which splits donations between 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers. As for Bandcamp, they're donating their portion of their sales today, Juneteenth, to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. For those unfamiliar, Juneteenth is the day enslaved African-Americans were told they were free in Texas. This was the final state where slaves were owned, making Juneteeth the day where slavery had ended across the United States completely.
Get all three demos here.
S"UNN O))) stands in solidarity with the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement and the revolutionary movement, the demonstrations and protests in the United States and around the world," said the band in a statement. "We stand in solidarity against the police state, police brutality, against systemic social, institutional racism and bigotry, and are vehemently antiracist and antifascist in our morals. We say fuck you to the horrendous Donald Trump administration and their responses, perhaps the worst government the USA has ever had."
"We will be donating proceeds from sales of these rehearsal demos to ACTBLUE’s campaign which splits donations between 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers. You can read more about their work here : bit.ly/2BQwmK8
"By purchasing this rehearsal demo you will be directly involved in a large donation to these 70+ causes, which SUNN O))) will make on all of our behalf. The community of music is great, compassionate, aware and active in these times. The underground is strong and in solidarity! Thank you so much for your interest and support."
