Ukrainian metalers Jinjer have spoken out about the atrocities currently undergoing in their home country, and are refocusing and reprioritising their energy into activism within reach. Having recently dropped off Knotfest shows, and replaced by Wage War (interesting move there band-name-wise, intentional or not), Jinjer have been sharing information on their socials, including an initial statement to fans that they are safe at the time of posting.
A couple of days later they posted a video sharing more about some of the realities going on in their homeland, as a result of the current Russian invasion. Jinjer are doing all they can do to raise awareness, spread love and reduce hate.
However, awareness can only do so much. which is why Jinjer have now released new merch designs to help raise funds to support their country.
The progressive-metalers have shared the following statement on the merch designs:
“Thank you all for your concerned messages and prayers sent to us over the last week, we may not answer but we are reading them and they mean the world to us. As you know, there is war raging through the streets and cities of Ukraine right now. Many people have little or no food or water and are very afraid of what tomorrow may bring. Together with Napalm Records, we’re releasing two new T-Shirt designs to raise funds to be donated to various charities throughout Ukraine to help with medical and food supplies, water and so on. If you cannot donate then please share this or any news related to what’s really happening here. Each sale may save somebody’s life in Ukraine. Thank you.“

100% of proceeds from these tees will be distributed directly to charity organisations of Jinjer’s choosing, and they will keep fans up to date via socials – see link below.
