DEMONS has released a new single titled “Uglier Americans” All proceeds made from the song will be donated to texas based organization RAICES, which is focused on education, affordable legal assistance provided to those impacted by illegal and unjust raids, and opportunities for involvement from those interested in helping.
In a press release, frontman Zach Gehring discussed the timely track, stating, “The separation of families at the border, and the policies that underscore recent activities targeting families from Mexico, Central, and South America, and US citizens are completely backwards and unquestionably cruel. Immigration policies and the inhumane treatment of people of all ages demands a response.” He continues to say “any action that can help thwart or slow down what is happening. This song is was motivated by an attempt to critique the gap between immediacy and reflection – the immediacy and urgency for those threatened by these policies versus the reflective and abstract media commentary and discourse that privileged people (like us) engage in and respond to earnestly.”
“Uglier Americans” follows the band’s last EP Made In The USA released late last year via Spartan Records, following their 2017 nine-track EP Embrace Wolf.
