A message from Jake Painter, Captain Ska
“On behalf of the whole band I’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone who’s supported us this year, and we’re excited to release our new protest track Sons and Daughters.”
“We’re donating all proceeds from downloads this week to foodbanks across the UK and the People’s Assembly Against Austerity.”
“We are so happy to be in partnership with the People’s Assembly who have played such a crucial role in making sure this Government’s vicious policies are challenged.
It’s so important that we have an organisation like the People’s Assembly who give people the chance to voice their anger and put pressure on the Government.”
“And we feel that in one of the richest countries on the planet it’s a disgrace that people are having to rely on food banks to feed their families, that homelessness is everywhere you look, that people are struggling to get by.
That’s why we also want to donate half of the proceeds to food banks across the UK so their shelves are stocked this winter.”
“On Friday, when we released the track, it hit No.41 in the download charts. It really won’t take much to guarantee it’s up in the official Top 40s this Friday, obliging the chart shows to play it.
We’d love for the songs message of hope that another world is possible could get out to millions!”
“Thanks again to everyone and look forward to seeing you on the many protests, demonstrations and events next year!”
