“Let this chant ring in your bones and lift you up,” says vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier.

The quartet launched a fundraising initiative alongside their previous single Amazonia, to benefit The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), who advocate for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon who have suffered immensely – victims of deforestation, land loss, forced labour, violence, and harassment.
