Now is not the time for us to be doing anything that could potentially distract from the important dialogue happening across the country today. Rather than grab the mic to promote records, we intend to spend this time offering support and solidarity while we listen and learn. In light of this, we are temporarily postponing this week’s scheduled release of Glazer’s “Bait” single.
Friday is another “Free” Bandcamp day. While we are not a company that sells a ton of records, any proceeds that come our way on Friday will be donated to Rise Up Kingston, an organization in our new community of Kingston, New York, dedicated to dismantling the structures of racism and oppression. We hope you’ll consider offering support to similar grassroots organizations in your own community.
Also please note that on June 19, Bandcamp will be donating 100% of their proceeds to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Please consider buying some music from independent artists on that day.
Peace, love and strength.
