It’s been a little over two years since they took us on a Vacation In Hell, but the Flatbush ZOMBiES are officially back with with their new project, Now, More Than Ever.
Based on a harrowing couple of years in which each member of the group lost primary parental figures in their lives, the EP has some of the most introspective and personal writing by the trio to date. With it’s release, Erick, Juice and Meech are also well aware of the current state of the world and made sure to speak out and use their platform to keep the fight going.
“We are going to keep this simple because time is precious right now,” the trio relayed in a message to their fans (full below). There is a fight going on outside. They are coming for our hearts, minds, and souls. Black bodies are under attack. Flatbush is for the people. Always has been. Always will be.
“We began this story almost a decade ago, preaching a mssages we felt was necessary. All three of us have spoken out and struggled against racism. It pains us to see the things we’ve mentioned in our music still vividly present in 2020.”
Putting action with the talk, Flatbush ZOMBiES are also releasing a line of merchandise, with all the proceeds being donated to to help the cause.
“We have three thousand pieces of merch to sell for this EP. If we sell every piece of merch, we can generate over $100,000 in one day. [UPDATE: They already sold out. Holy crap.] Every single dollar will be equally split and donated to three foundations working to help change our world right now. We are organizing and strategizing how we can affect change on the largest scale possible with your help. Stand with us or stand somewhere else. Now, more than fucking ever.”
Led by “iamlegend,” the six-track EP can be heard below.
