The Revivalists launched the brand new anti-gun track "Shoot You Down" on Tuesday (Oct. 30) in partnership with Revolutions Per Minute to profit the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund.
Inspired by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School taking pictures in Parkland, Fla., earlier this yr, The Revivalists felt compelled to talk out in regards to the overwhelming gun violence downside in our society.
"'Shoot You Down' is a track that was written straight from the center earlier this yr," frontman David Shaw says in an emailed assertion. "It's an anti-gun violence track meant to carry consciousness to a really severe and rising situation that we at the moment have on this nation. We imagine that music has the facility to alter minds and lives. This is our pledge to survivors and victims. We love you and we’re with you."
"Shoot You Down" is out there as a limited-edition orange and yellow 7-inch vinyl with the brand new monitor on Side A and fan favourite "You and I" on Side B. The orange colour is symbolic for the gun violence prevention motion ever since 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton's mates started to put on orange in her honor after she was shot and killed in Chicago in 2013.
"Together we are going to make a change," Shaw provides. "Our hearts exit to the victims of the horrific taking pictures on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in addition to their household, mates and all these affected. We stand with you. Let's present one another love, compassion and understanding. Hate has no place in our world."
Fans should buy the vinyl completely at impartial document shops across the nation, with all gross sales instantly going to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund.
