Massive Attack, Young Fathers & Fontaines D.C. release 12″ vinyl & print for Gaza

Avatar

Fontaines DC, Massive Attack and Young Fathers a limited edition vinyl and art print in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) to benefit the Palestinian people in Gaza and West Bank.

The 12″ features songs from each of the act, and a ceasefire sleeve design by 3D of Massive Attack.

The reverse sleeve of the 12” features words written on a hospital whiteboard in Gaza by Doctors Without Borders medic Dr Mahmoud Abu Nujaila – words which went viral on global social media – depicting the desperation of medical professionals and civilians in Gaza. Tragically, Dr Nujaila was killed in a strike a few weeks later.

“WHOEVER STAYS
UNTIL THE END
WILL TELL THE STORY
WE DID WHAT WE COULD.
REMEMBER US”

A limited-edition/artist signed large-print sale of the sleeve artwork is also happening.

Pre-order here.

“The hourly scenes of horror in Gaza, with hospitals and schools bombed to dust and innocent civilians, journalists and doctors killed in unspeakable numbers has been made so much worse by more than ten weeks of abject political failure.
We’re in awe of the Doctors Without Borders medics who place their lives on the line to help innocent civilians in Gaza. The ceasefire EP is a tribute to them, and their incredible ongoing work in truly indescribable circumstances. We stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine”

3D (Massive Attack).


“Fontaines DC join millions across the world in demanding an immediate ceasefire and a permanent end to Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine.
Since October, Doctors Without Borders have been on the ground in Gaza, where every human is an IDF target, risking their lives to give vital care to the thousands injured by Israel’s indiscriminate attacks on the starving and defenceless. We feel utterly helpless in what we can do at this point however we do hope our small contribution to this record can raise some desperately needed funds for Doctors Without Borders in Gaza. Ceasefire Now. Free Palestine”

Fontaines DC.

Despite repeated deadly attacks on its staff, medics, surgeons, and aid conveys, Doctors Without Borders volunteers continue to offer critical support to the civilians of Gaza.

Fontaines DC, Massive Attack & Young Fathers will donate 100% of the profits from this promotional venture to Médecins Sans Frontières (UK – charity number: 1026588) emergency operations in Gaza and the West Bank. The total donation is expected to be in excess of £150,000.
