In solidarity with the movement for justice for Freddie Gray, and May Day protesters all over the world, Baltimore-based punk band, Old Lines, has released a bonus track titled, “Midnight in Baltimore.” This digital-only release comes after several weeks of mass protests and unrest in the city following the death of Freddy Gray by the Baltimore Police Dept.
On April 12th, 2015, Freddie Gray was taken into custody by six Baltimore City police officers, and subsequently beaten and murdered leading to public outrage and a battle cry for accountability on behalf of the Mayors office and the Police Dept. Many in the city have already been arrested and are currently being held indefinitely without charges.
“Midnight in Baltimore,” is available via www.oldlines.bandcamp.com, and 100% of all proceeds obtained from the “name your own price” download will be donated to the defense fund organized by Baltimore United for a Change. If you would like to donate directly to the fund, please visit CROWDRISE.
‘Please give generously. Too many people across the country have fallen victim to police brutality and now is the time to take a stand. None of us are free, until all of us are free.’
