Set to land on the post-hardcore band’s upcoming new EP ‘Wrong Generation’, the track was written and recorded after frontman Jason Aalon Butler spent 13 days protesting following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, back in May.
“Everything in this song was what I’d seen during those 13 days and what I felt needed to happen,” Butler said in a statement. “I saw buildings burn. I saw fights. I saw white allies stepping in front of the National Guard, because they knew they had a power those black bodies behind them did not.”
He added: “What did you expect? When you put any creature in a corner for so long and show them how quickly life can be taken from them, I don’t know what other option there is but fighting back.”
