TWIABP selling rare test pressings & new t-shirt to benefit bail funds
With everything going on right now, musicians are finding ways to contribute to various bail funds to help arrested protesters, and one of those musicians is The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, who are selling two rare test pressings on eBay and donating all proceeds to the Philadelphia Bail Fund. You can bid here.
The band also wrote, "Been relying on retweets and been largely silent with my personal voice because I have trouble articulating my thoughts, especially when dealing with such strong anger and sadness, but, black people, friends or strangers, I’m with you. Here to listen and do whatever I can to help. Black lives matter, fuck the police."
UPDATE: TWIABP are also selling a tee-shirt with the "Marine Tigers" lyric "Can you still call it a country if all the states are broken?" and a photo of the band by Nick Karp, with all proceeds going to Philly Bail Fund and Columbus Freedom Fund.
"In the midst of a global pandemic, we want to do the best we can to support those fighting against systemic racism and brutal oppression on the ground. All proceeds from this shirt will support bail funds in the cities we live in that are most active in protesting police brutality and class/race-based institutional violence. The citizens of Columbus and Philadelphia who have risen up against it need and deserve your support," the band writes.
Pre-order the shirt here.
UPDATE: Fiddlehead are also one of several artists with test pressings in Run For Cover's benefit raffle.
