If you’re not on the Crazy Eighty Eight bandwagon yet, uppercut yourself! The trio featuring Lauren Babic, Patty Walters and Jarrod Alonge has been making waves for a few years now (get to know them all here) and in that time they’ve released a stack of banging covers for you to froth over.
Today, their biggest cover to date has been released.
The band have tackled Rage Against The Machine‘s ‘Killing In The Name‘ and in doing so, they teamed up with Marcus Bridge (Northlane), Courtney LaPlante (Spiritbox), Tyler Tate (Hollow Front), Jared Dines, Nathan Kane (Whale Bones), Mike Martenson (Boys of Fall), Linzey Rae (The Anchor), Jake Impellizzeri (Sleep Waker) & David Thompson (Nanashi) create one of the biggest collaborations since Avengers: Endgame!
They’re also raising awareness for NAACP, an organisation which helps fight police brutality against people of colour, something the band addressed below:
Black Americans are over twice as likely to be killed by police than white Americans. Senseless hate crimes and incidence of coronavirus deaths spreading throughout African American communities display the continuance of systematic racism and privilege granted to white people in the US. We encourage you to educate yourself on these issues and make the decision to donate to a charity that effectively serves such communities. In the meantime, you can use this song to help yourself stay angry.
The end result, well I won’t ruin it for you but check it out below!
