Algiers will release a special edition 7” to support the struggle to end state violence against Black people and dismantle white supremacy.
‘Can the Sub_Bass Speak’ b/w ‘It All Comes Around Again’ will be available physically only through Bandcamp during the 24-hour period that the site is waiving its revenue share on June 5th. The songs will remain available online indefinitely. It is available HERE.
All proceeds from the single will be donated to Metro Atlanta Mutual Aid Fund, As They Lay, and Black Alliance for Just Immigration.
“This release has been created to support, in a small way, those who continue to struggle under life and death circumstances to end the miserable condition that exists for Black and other oppressed people in this country and its colonial world,” write the band. “We dedicate this to the families of those who have been murdered by the police state in America and encourage our supporters to continue to donate in their memory”.
The A-side, previously released as a standalone single, is drawn from the band’s audiovisual collaboration of the same name and features contributions from saxophonics pioneer Skerik and drummer D’Vonne Lewis. ‘It All Comes Around Again’ is an unreleased track available here for the first time.
