PALAYE ROYALE Unveil Blistering New Anthem ‘Massacre, The New American Dream’
Angry and full of bite, the newest Palaye Royale single packs a punch with both its message and searing instrumental.
Fashion-art rock trio Palaye Royale channel their inner aggression and ferocity with their blistering new single Massacre, The New American Dream.
Frustrated with the violence prevalent in the US, they’ve let loose their emotions and inner turmoils in a whirlwind of smashing drums and hammering basses that will get you fired up and leave your blood boiling. There is no doubt that this is a charged battle cry that will resonate with the frustrations of many, and the band makes sure that their impact will carry as far as possible by donating proceeds from the single sales to Giffords and March for Our Lives, two of the largest US organisations committed to fighting gun violence in the US.
Explaining the sentiments behind the track, the band says:
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.org and MarchForOurLives.com.
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!
Join The Revolution.
