It has been a long time since we sent one of these. We’re currently touring Australia and played a very special show at the Sydney Opera House. We’ve also just released a new track that has been getting support all around. Check it out:
Indigenous peoples in Australia and in Canada have a lot in common when it comes to the experience of colonialism. It has been an incredible week so far in Australia where we’ve been able to share our stories and get to discover the country and its people. We did an interview with on NITV about this that we think is worth sharing. Check it out. We’ve got more dates coming up while we’re in the country, so if you are in Australia or know people there, we hope you’ll spread the word! See all of the upcoming shows here.
In the interview video you will find part of the recap video of the Rez Tour we did in August when we went to six reserves in Ontario to present the show that we perform around the world. The shows were free and all ages, and we also got to meet the local youth during workshops. It was truly special to be able to do this and to show the youth that they are important and that people just like them can succeed. It was important for us to be able to give back to our community that continue to be the inspiration for our music and especially to its youth that is currently facing a terrible suicide epidemic. It was a truly beautiful life changing experience that we will forever be grateful for. So here is the video, shot by our friend Jon Riera:
Finally, we just released a new song a couple of weeks ago, and we hope you will check it out and will like it. We teamed up for a second time with Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist) for a banging track called All Day. The song is made up of our signature sound, mixing PowWow vocals (courtesy of Chippewa Travelers) and heavy, fun, thumping beats. The incredible A-Trak played it last weekend on his Beats1 radio show! You can stream it on Thump – Listen on Spotify – Support us and grab it on iTunes
