Massive Attack, Young Fathers and Fontaines D.C. are releasing a joint EP, Ceasefire, to be released on limited-edition vinyl, the proceeds of which will be donated to Doctors Without Borders’ aid efforts in Gaza. The three bands are also calling for a ceasefire in the region, in addition to donating profits from the EP, and “a permanent end to Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine” per a statement from Fontaines D.C.
Massive Attack’s 3D said in a press release, “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.”
The EP features artwork from 3D, which can also be purchased as a signed print. It features the words of Doctors Without Borders medic Dr. Mahmoud Abu Nujaila who wrote this message on a whiteboard before being killed in an airstrike:
UNTIL THE END
WILL TELL THE STORY,
WE DID WHAT WE COULD.
