A message from Soul Asylum

A message from Soul Asylum:

To show our support for George Floyd, his family, and everyone peacefully seeking justice to be served we are releasing free downloads and streaming of our song “Black And Blue” as well as a cover of “Nazi Punks F*ck Off” by the Dead Kennedys, available at SoulAsylum.com or by clicking the song titles. We highly encourage donations to “Official George Floyd Memorial Fund” on Gofundme, and please sign the petition “Justice for George Floyd” on change.org.

We also encourage everyone to register and vote in all elections, especially locally where you make the largest impact on change in our police and justice departments. Systems can be changed through voting, and it is important to learn about your local and national elections so you can elect people who share your points of view. We must vote out systemic racism. https://www.headcount.org/registertovote/

Let’s all unite to fight racism peacefully and intelligently. Nazis, racists, white supremacists and fascists, you have NO BUSINESS in our amazing city. To the rest of you beautiful people, love from Minneapolis, MN!
