GORILLAZ: Enraged By Floyd Death
Responding to your asks, here are the tees + hoodies. All proceeds from the sales will go to London-based black history education charity, @theblackcurriculum. We will continue to research and add charities to our list. We want to make change and we're starting local. Link in bio. #BlackLivesMatter #BeTheChange
Gorillaz have posted to Instagram a drawing of animated band members Russel Hobbs and 2-D wearing "Be the Change" shirts, but what's more important is the commentary from the band's real-life masterminds Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. They wrote, "Gorillaz are enraged at the death of George Floyd and many before him at the hands of systemic racism and police brutality. It's time to be the change and play an active part in the fight for justice and equality. White supremacy must end. Black Lives’ Matter. Listen. Learn. Take action. More to follow."

Following the music industry’s #TheShowMustBePaused campaign Tuesday, music artists are calling out to their record labels to see what else they plan to do for the Black Lives Matter Movement. And when Jack Antonoff asked how much the industry already donated to the cause, Tegan and Sara chimed in agreement. Posting to Twitter, “We would like to know too.”
Record Store Day has just announced it’s 2020’s “RSD Drops.” The annual collection of vinyl, which will be out three separate days this year: Aug. 29, Sept. 26 and Oct. 24.
