Hardcore rockers Stick To Your Guns debut their latest music video “Better Ash Than Dust,” the title track from their new EP; in addition, they also bring focus to a much bigger issue. The music video was created in light of the recent social injustices in America, specifically the tragic chaos that is occurring in North Dakota over the Dakota Access Pipeline.
“With the eyes of the world on what is happening in North Dakota and the Dakota Access Pipeline, I think this a perfect time to release this video,” states vocalist Jesse Barnett. “So much of what is happening to the indigenous people of what we call America is not only horrifying, but down right unacceptable. This is not just an injustice against these people, their land and their water, but it’s a perfect example of how what we call a civilized society can, more often than not, be barbaric and disgusting. The support that the whole world has shown for Standing Rock has been and inspiring thing to watch and this band stands in solidarity with them.”
Press release states: “In support, Stick To Your Guns, Pure Noise Records and Good Fight Entertainment will each be donating a dollar per share, up to a thousand dollars each, to Standing Rock front line warriors. Beyond this, there is a lot more people can do to get involved.” Go to standingrock.org to find out how.
