THE MUSLIMS CALL FOR UNITY!
North Carolina punks THE MUSLIMS have unveiled a new video from their forthcoming new album.
‘Unity’ is taken from the Durham trio’s fourth full-length Fuck These Fuckin’ Fascists which is set for release through Epitaph on 24 September.
Formed in 2017 in the aftermath of the 2016 US election which brought Trump to the presidency, the all-Muslim, all-gay trio take draw inspiration from such trailblazing and uncompromising black artists as Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, and Poly Styrene and Bobby Hackney Sr of Detroit’s pioneering black proto-punk band Death.
“Love is an action word that demands of us to speak up and fight, passionately, for the future we all deserve,” proclaims vocalist QADR. “I’m so tired of their belligerent screams for ‘UNITY,’ corny dances and symbolic gestures. We don’t want Harriet Tubman on a fuckin’ $20, we want reparations and no more racist police.”
