Palaye Royale have released their latest single, Massacre, The New American Dream. The track is a protest punk rock anthem taking a stand against the national gun violence epidemic in the USA. Literally putting their money where their mouths are, the band will be donating proceeds from the single.
Talking about the single Palaye Royale explain “Massacre, The New American Dream asks the poignant question Why are we so casual ’bout these casualties? This is a protest. In hopes to give this new generation a revolution in the form of an anthem. We are all on the verge of waking up and truly understanding that people should not be afraid of their government, government should be afraid of their people. This is how we feel about the current state of America. We are the new era, United we stand, in search of retribution for those who have been wronged.”
“We are tired of seeing innocent people being gunned down so unbelievably often and still there is no change. How many more innocent people have to die for change to happen? Government and the news share no sort of resolve or actions of change for these problems. This is why we have chosen to donate proceeds from the single sales to Giffords and March For Our Lives who are on the front line, fighting to tackle the gun violence epidemic our nation currently faces. We encourage our fans to take a look at the incredible work they do and either purchase the single, donate directly or learn how to get involved at Giffords and March For Our Lives.”
The band continues “We put forth our creative anger to depict the current state of our civilization. Our protest song is titled Massacre, The New American Dream. It speaks to the fact that there seems to be more kids growing up to become famous for school shootings than famous for anything else in America. In every Church, School and Synagogue, Virginia to Littleton when will it stop?. We asked ourselves this question each time we see yet another mass shooting broadcast across our TVs. There is a shadow that looms over this generation, What is the New American Dream? To our understanding, It’s a Massacre but if we unite and work together, we can be the difference!”
The band have also been hard at work behind the scenes putting the finishing touches to album number three. Watch out for more news on this 2020 release coming soon.
