There has been an issue brought to our attention that requires commentary.
Anyone that actually knows us, knows that we are not nazis or racists. To others it might not be so obvious, hence this clarification:
We are an apolitical band. We are not racist, nazis, homophobic, or transphobic, and we do not harbor any negative views and attitudes for any group of people possessing some trait they have no control over.
The reason we are bringing this up is because recently we have been questioned about two shows we played ten years ago. One at which we played a cover of a song by the white power band Rahowa. Both were events put on and attended by white nationalists.
None of this should be taken as any kind of endorsement or advocacy of the beliefs of these groups but as an interest in getting close to extremism in America as well as dumb youthful decision making. We have done similar up close and personal looks (to the extent that we could) into other groups such as Scientology, Christianity, and the Hebrew Israelites.
Having said all that, we have realized over the years that it is not something that we should have put into the physical universe and it has recently been pointed out to us that we shouldn’t have taken their money if we don’t share their beliefs. In light of this realization and to help pay our karmic debt we have decided to donate all proceeds from our next show to an as yet unnamed organization that combats negative extremism and we will also be setting up a benefit show at some point this spring.
