This Record Store Day we partnered with Revolutions Per Minute to donate all the profits from this special release to the Immigrant Defense Project, an exceptional and important organization that, for the past 20 years, has been fighting to secure fairness and justice for all immigrants in the United States. Given the current political climate, increasing ICE raids and the vilification of immigrants, it is crucial to count on resources to help end this era of unprecedented mass criminalization, detention and deportation. Immigrants in the US need our help now more than ever!
To encourage higher donations, we also have an exclusive pin available on Bandcamp available to purchase alongside the digital album. This design is limited and only available through Bandcamp, so get one while you can!
To learn about more ways you can help IDP, visit their website. Stand with us and the Immigrant Defense Project in the fight against injustice towards immigrants and their families in this country!
We are very excited to announce that for this year's Record Store Day on April 21, Bayonet has teamed up with artists Mac Demarco and Shamir for an exclusive 7" featuring two covers of songs by iconic indie band Beat Happening!
We wanted to make this Record Store Day release extra special, which is why we are partnering with Revolutions Per Minute to donate all profits from the release to the Immigrant Defense Project, an exceptional and important organization that, for the past 20 years, has been providing much-needed legal aid and guidance to immigrants facing deportation and injustice in the United States.
Myself, Siena and Dustin are all first generation immigrants. Our parents came to the United States respectively from Cuba and Colombia seeking better lives for themselves. We're forever grateful for the hardships they endured to get here and stay here. Without the sacrifices they made, we wouldn't be here today living out our dreams. This is why this project is so deeply personal to all of us. Help us as we stand with IDP against injustice to immigrants across the country!
Grab a copy of the exclusive clear vinyl at your local record store on Saturday, April 21, 2018. To find a participating store near you head to the official Record Store Day website here!
